LYE Town completed their pre-season programme with a 2-0 win at Ledbury Town courtesy of goals from Steve Weaver and Kieren Bennett.
The Stourbridge Road side, who share their ground with the local cricket club, now face seven matches on the road, starting on Saturday with a trip to Willenhall Town in their opening West Midlands League match.
Lye will be concerned by the amount of injuries they’ve picked up.
Joint-boss Martin Thomas said: “Pre-season has been disruptive to say the least.”
Lye are still without last season’s leading marksman Ricky Anslow while versatile Nicky Pugh has sustained a fractured rib from the 2-0 defeat at Boldmere St Michaels last week.
Added to that, striker Scott Gennard has yet to feature in pre-season as he continues his recovery from injury.
