BEWDLEY Town continue to blaze an early trail on top of the West Midlands League after pulling off a prized 3-2 success at Wolverhampton Sporting Community.

Initial prospects didn't look promising when Sporting's Chad Birch beat the offside trap to put his side ahead.

But the contest took a significant turn on 17 minutes when Sporting had goalkeeper Richard Kennedy sent off following a crude challenge on Bewdley's Luke Morris.

Despite having a one man advantage, Bewdley had to wait until a minute before half time before levelling matters when Simon Rudd had a shot deflected home.

Luke Morris then fired Bewdley in front on 53 minutes from the penalty spot.

A third Bewdley goal arrived on 80 minutes when Sporting's makeshift goalkeeper dropped Dylan Hart's free kick for Rudd to ram home his second goal.

Sporting were far from finished and pulled a goal back on 85 minutes through former Black Country Rangers player Nicky Turton.

Sporting piled on the pressure from that point but Bewdley held firm in the face of eight added minutes of time.
