Cup final for Town
2:00pm Friday 18th January 2013 in Sport
EDGAR Street beckons for Ledbury Town after they won 3-1 at rivals Bartestree in the Herefordshire Football Association Challenge Cup semi-finals.
The visitors wore black armbands and a minute’s silence was held for former player Paul Ledbury who died recently.
Town attacked first as an Ian Merrick 25-yarder tested the keeper before Dan Herbert had an effort ruled out for offside.
Then Ledbury custodian Lewis Skyers pulled off a fine save and, although Bartestree went ahead on the half-hour mark, Neil Gardiner levelled just 30 seconds later.
Herbert swooped to put the visitors ahead in the 58th minute when the keeper could not hold his powerful strike.
Bartestree were denied an equaliser by the assistant referee’s flag.
However, the West Midlands League Division Two titlechasers secured their progress on 77 minutes through Tom Boyle.
Town, who visit Wolverhampton Sporting Community Reserves tomorrow (2pm), will play Pegasus Juniors or Westfields in the final at Hereford United.
