Stratford Town Youth’s title challenge suffers setback


STRATFORD Town Youth’s MFYL Premier Division South title challenge was met with a setback as they slipped to a 4-3 defeat to Rugby Town Juniors at Kilsby Lane on Monday night, writes Bryan Hale.

A classy Rugby side, who are the only team who have beaten Town in the league this season, followed up their 5-3 success at the DCS back in September with another powerful performance.

In a first half played at a frenetic pace, the Juniors opened up a 2-0 lead before Town battled back to be all square at the break, but the Juniors moved up a gear in the second period to take over top spot in the table.

Dylan Parker with his 21st goal of the season, Ben Couki and Jordan White were the Town scorers.
