Uphill Castle A increased the pressure on the leaders in Division 4 of the Weston and District League with this impressive victory on the road at FC Milton.

Joshua Thorne sniffed out a hat-trick with intelligent play, while Matthew Bebber weighed in with a double. They were joined on the scoresheet by Willliam Foster and Jordan Potepa, who represented Sunflower at junior level in his homeland of South Africa.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Hayers Convenience Store, Weston, went to Randolph Palmer.

It’s usually hard to find positives when you lose a local derby, but after a rocky start to the season, Wrington A showed signs of coming together.

James Marshall and Jonny Marsh have worked wonders to keep the side together and forge a real team spirit. It helps to have a good keeper and Billy Thomas again made several outstanding saves.

Dean Rix and Rob Buckland are forging a solid centre back partnership with Sam Fowkes and Tom Lucas providing pace and width from full-back. Sam Fowkes had a particularly good game, as did the reliable Paul Faulkner.

Jonny Marsh, Fin Taplin and Harry Quigley provided plenty of energy in midfield and James Marshall with Mike Fairs worked hard up front.

Congresbury took the lead in the first half and doubled this soon after the break. Wrington pulled a goal back through Harry Quigley. As the visitors looked for an equaliser, Congresbury scored from a free kick.
