30 Years Ago -17 May 1983 PDF Print E-mail

On this day 30 years ago, The Yeltz travelled to Ledbury for a West Midlands League match. The reverse fixture had been an easy 8-0 Yeltz victory at The Grove, including Don Smith & Lee Joinson hat-tricks, but nothing remarkable was expected to happen this time as the League title had been secured some time ago.

Having reached Wembley in the FA Vase for the first time and also, 6 days previously, lifted the League Cup with a 1 – 0 win against Hednesford, a fixtures backlog had stacked up. 11 matches had to be played in the month of May and Ledbury was the 9th. 
In the event, our striker GEOFF MOSS chose the match to write himself into the Yeltz record books as it was only the 5  time since the Club reformed in 1946 that a player scored 5 goals in a match, which ended in another 8-0 Yeltz victory. The last occasion had been Alec Wood against Tamworth in 1965 and the feat has not since been repeated.  Geoff is pictured above celebrating one of Wembley FA Vase goals.
