Defeat for Southam United on the road at Pershore Town

SOUTHAM United are still searching for their first league win of the season after slipping to a 2-0 defeat away at Pershore Town on Tuesday evening.

Having not played at the weekend, Southam had extra time to prepare for this mid-week Midland League Division Two fixture but it proved to be a game of very few chances.

Two first half goals in the space of just three minutes from ex-Littleton striker Jamie Clarke proved to be the difference between the two sides.

The opener came with 32 minutes on the clock after the striker latched onto a long ball and outpaced the Southam defence before finishing past Anthony Allen.

And on 35 minutes the home side double their lead when again Clarke found himself through on goal and his fortuitous finish bobbled into the Southam net.

The visitors did grow into the match in the second half and enjoyed a 15-minute period of possession but despite their domination they were unable to create any clear-cut opportunities.

Southam entertain Heather St Johns this Saturday before facing Coventry Copsewood on Monday.
