Teversal were trounced 5-1 at home to Worsbrough Bridge as their miserable start to the season continued.

On this showing Teversal will be lucky to maintain their Step 6 status with the only exit being through the trap door unless improvements don’t take place immediately.

From the kick off in this game they were under pressure and luckily Brad Kerr was only setting his sights when he broke through in the first minute to smash an effort against the bar.

That warning wasn’t heeded and, on 12 minutes, Worsbrough took control of the game when Kerr broke clear to cleverly curl an effort from the corner of the penalty over the stranded Harry Waldram.

The Tevie Boys started to play some neat passing moves leading to their first effort on 15 minutes with Jimmt Adcock shooting just over the bar.

The sting of the Teversal pressure was taken out of their game when they found themselves 2-0 down,

Parirs Dixon, in robbing possession from Atkins, sent Kerr clear again and, with Waldram racing out of his area, the quick striker managed to get their first and slide the ball home on 33 minutes.

Things went from bad to worse for the home side on 39 minutes when a far post corner for Worsbrough found Kerr unmarked to head back across the six yard box to allow his Captain Craig Laight to tap home unchallenged.

Any faint hope the Tevie Boys may have had at getting back into the game was killed off on the 65th minute when a long punt up the park saw Kerr superbly control the ball before firing an effort that Waldram at full length couldn’t get anywhere near to as the Briggers striker celebrated his hat-trick.

Even though looking second best all afternoon, Teversal did keep trying and their efforts were rewarded on 70 minutes when Adcocks corner was powerfully met by Schofield with Oxley making a stunning save that rebounded out to Fisher to head home to make it 1-4.

With the scoring not finished, it was the visitors who were gifted a fifth goal on 83 minutes to round of a satisfying afternoon for them.

Cawley delivered a free-kick that eluded all the defenders and Waldram was caught over stretching to allow Laight a free header at the far post to head home into the empty net to top off a totally miserable afternoon for the Tevie Boys.
