BEWDLEY Town displayed all their battling qualities as they came from behind to bag a prized 3-2 victory at Hereford side Wellington.

Bewdley had been boosted by the inclusion of midfield man Ollie Mulders following his recent release from Redditch United.

Bewdley-based Mulders had previously been on Birmingham City's books and spokesman Steve Godfrey explained: "Ollie had already signed for us at the start of the season and played in a couple of opening rounds in the FA Vase.

"He'd also featured for Stourport Swifts but wasn't getting much of a look-in.

"Ollie was then snapped up by Paul Smith when he took charge of Redditch but wasn't commanding a starting place in the side.

"He didn't want to sit on the bench, Ollie just wants to play football and he proved to have a big influence on the game."

Bewdley got off to a flying start when Matt Kerby fired in a shot which rebounded back out to him. Kerby then crossed the ball back into the goalmouth where Russ Godfrey stunned everyone by netting with a diving header.

Wellington hit back to take the lead by half time, George Hayes beat Bewdley's offside trap to level before Saul Thomas thumped home a volley from Sam Pearson's cross.

Bewdley then took the second half by storm and Simon Rudd levelled from a Mulders free kick.

Mulders was then brought down and got up to net the winning goal from the penalty spot.

Steve Godfrey added: "Russ Godfrey's goal was a bit of a champagne moment but after going behind, we came out and controlled the second half in what proved a really good game."

The result helps Bewdley cement a top six place in the West Midlands League Premier Division and Phil Mullen's men will be bidding to build on that position this Saturday when they entertain lowly Wem Town in what will be the first ever meeting between the two clubs.
