Worle are through to the next round of the cup after defeating Ashton & Backwell Reserves.

Worle 3

Ashton & Backwell Res 2

Worle progressed to the next round of the Premier/First Division Cup at the expense of Ashton & Backwell.

The visitors broke the deadlock in the 20th minute when a good run from Radnedge put in a great cross converted by Ashton’s top goalscorer Smart. This lead did not last long when a through ball to Cahill saw him outstrip his marker to bring the sides level.

Next it was Ashton & Backwell’s turn and Sam Hemmings scored the goal of the game from the free kick 25 yards out, giving Dancey in the home goal no chance. Back came Worle and from a set piece, the ball falling to Molten who drove his shot past the keeper.

The sides went into the break level, but the second half saw the home side take control of the game and it was McManus who put Worle in front for the first time in the game when Cahill set him up.

Hodrien should have put the game out of sight, but only found the side netting. The away team threw everything at Worle, but the back three of Down, Hudson and Wilson stood firm and Worle managed to see the game out.

This Saturday, Worle are away to local rivals Winscombe (2.30pm) and it is anticipated new signing Chris Taylor from Berrow & Highbridge will be making his debut.

Draycott 2

Banwell 3

Banwell ground out another three points with a hard-earned victory away at Draycott.

The conditions made for a difficult game, but the visitors were able to take the lead when some hard work from striker Tom Vowles enabled him to bundle the ball past the keeper.

Banwell’s back four of Sampson, White, Brown and Ham looked solid, but were caught on the break which allowed the home side to pull level.

The visitors again took the lead when some good work from Dylan York saw him create some space and allowed him to drive home from the outside of the box. Banwell were immediately pegged back conceding an almost identical goal to the first.

However, a battling performance from Ronnie Biggs and Vinnie Evans in midfield kept Banwell on the front foot and Banwell were able to take the lead again when substitute George Darch produced a superb cross for Ross Stockhall to head home.

Katherines Coffee Shop man of the match was awarded to Ash White.

Wrington Redhill 2

Stockwood Wanderers 1

This was a hard-fought cup match on a heavy pitch, with the home side running out 2-1 winners.

The home team took the lead on 20 minutes when a clearing header from Leigh White’s free kick fell to Vickery just outside the box, who netted. Stockwood almost equalised two minutes later, but Leigh White headed the ball off the line.

Wrington Redhill went two up when a White corner was met perfectly by Mike Rowcliffe powerful header to find the back of the net.

Stockwood were back in the game on 43 minutes when winger Cox cut inside Adam Caulfield and unleashed a powerful shot that beat goalkeeper Matt Hill.

Stockwood almost equalised early in the second half when Tainton headed a cross just over the bar from close range. On 65 minutes the home team almost went further ahead when Chris Holland’s effort bounced just wide.

Further chances fell to Jake Horton, Vickery and Rowcliffe, but Wrington held on to move into the next round.
