Cheddar strike Adam Jones hit a hat-trick in his side’s 5-1 victory at Warminster Town to move into second spot in the league table.

Fifthteenth-placed Warminster Town were hit by a five-goal barrage as the Cheesemen overtook Bristol Telephones to move into second place at Warminster’s Weymouth Street ground.

Shaun Potter’s team settled into the game quickly and forced an early corner and Ricky Bennett’s kick found Adam Jones, who appeared to be barged off the ball. A strong run from Bennett caught the Warminster defence napping and his 20-yard strike was brilliantly saved by the keeper.

Cheddar took the lead on 27 minutes when good work by Bennett, Sam King and Robbi Maggs set up Jones from 10 yards. Ten minutes later, the visitors doubled their lead when Jones’ rasping drive gave the keeper little chance.

The Cheesemen went further ahead on the hour when King netted after good work by Maggs. Two minutes later Jones stretched their lead with a strong header to put the visitors 4-0 up.

The home side reduced the deficit on 67 minutes from the spot after keeper Liam Kingston brought down an attacker. Chris Coombs made the score 5-1 on 81 minutes, sliding the ball home from six yards after Danny Griffiths’ header had rebounded off the crossbar and into his path.

This was an impressive win for a Cheddar team who have won eight of their last nine games, and now face two home games in successive weeks against Almondsbury and Calne Town respectively.

Following the game, Cheddar manager Shaun Potter, speaking to the club website, said: “I was pleased with today, Warminster is not an easy place to come to, so to come away with a 5-1 win is very pleasing.

“We’ve had a very good October, we how have some crucial games and a busy schedule in November and December and we want this run to continue, starting with two home games on the bounce.”
