LEIGH and Bransford Badgers Thistle under 12s won 2-1 at Gresley to reach the Midland Junior Premier League Cup third round.

Badgers went ahead in the first half with a free-kick but Gresley equalised after the break following a goalmouth scramble.

The visitors continued to work hard and a second goal two minutes from time secured the victory.

The Malvern Vale Community Centre-based side are now sporting new kit thanks to Ledbury Fencing and Paving Products.
