5:30pm Sunday 3rd April 2011

Upton Town 4, Bourton Rovers Reserves 0.

A PATCHED-up Upton Town got the three points required in a tough game against Bourton Rovers Reserves in the Cheltenham and Gloucester League Division Three.

The hosts had to reshuffle before kick-off with five players out.

But they managed to take an early lead after a good move down the right resulted in Kristian Richardson converting Watkins’ cross from close range.

Richardson grabbed his second on 35 minutes with a deflected 20-yard effort looping over the stranded keeper.

Upton were dealt a blow on 40 minutes when utility player Mark Amott was carried off with ankle ligament damage.

Luke Kitchen scored a superb solo goal on 50 minutes, beating three men then firing into the far corner from 12 yards.

Makeshift central midfielder Chris Pugh blasted a half-volley from 25 yards in off the underside of the crossbar for Town’s fourth.
