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.
