This evening sees Bromsgrove Sporting play Worcester City in the semi final of the Worcestershire Senior Urn (7:45 KO). Here is some information ahead of the game, as well as a look at our opponents.
As this is an ‘away’ game for Sporting, the entry prices for the match have been chosen by Worcester. They are as follows – Adults: £6, Concessions & Students: £4, Under 16s (accompanied by an adult): £1.
In reply to some questions being asked RE – segregation; there will not be any segregation for the game.
Of course, Worcester are no strangers to the Rouslers, having played them twice in the Midland Football League Premier Division last season, gaining four points from six (including a 2-1 win in April that majorly helped steer Sporting to MFL glory).
This season, Worcester currently sit 8th in the MFL Premier, accruing 33 points from 20 games (leaders Ilkeston Town have 46 points from the same amount of games).
Worcester did enjoy a 15 match unbeaten run in all competitions across the end of August, September and most of October, which included a run of six straight league wins.
However, since that unbeaten run ended (courtesy of a 1-0 home league defeat to Sporting Khalsa on October 27th), City have found points harder to come by, picking up only five from a possible 18 (including the Khalsa match).
Worcester beat Pershore Town 2-0 away to get to this semi final (Sporting beat Stourport Swifts 5-0 at Walshes Meadow).
