Hallow won the inaugural Worcester & District Football League Southam Trophy with a 5-0 win against Wychbold RBL. Matt Walters gave Hallow a first half lead which also saw them having to change their goalkeeper, Matt Coopey replacing the injured Paul Taylor. After the interval Wycbold had a goal disallowed for offside before Walters extended the lead. A brace from Kyonn Evans then made the game safe for Hallow and despite the heroics of Dean Smith in the Wychbold goal, Evans completed a fine hat-trick on the stroke of time as the village of Hallow celebrated into the night.

Northway are the new holders of the Saturday League Phipps Cup for Division 2 teams, defeating Worcester Anchors 3-1 after extra-time in the final played at Pershore Town F.C. After these two clubs had drawn four times in previous meetings this season, it came as no surprise that this match was also level after 90 minutes. Steve Allsopp gave Northway a second half lead before Nathan Jones equalised for Anchors on the stroke of full-time. However Northway were the stronger team in added time and further goals from Allsopp and Nick Hewitt secured them the trophy.

There was a thrilling end to the Worcester Nursing Sunday Minor Cup final at Malvern Town F.C. where Malvern Radar drew 2-2 with Wessie after extra-time. With the match being delayed due to a serious head injury sustained by one of the Wessie players, it was approaching 11 p.m. when Radar eventually won the match 7-6 in a penalty shoot-out.
