Keeper Royce and skipper Wilson with centre-back partner Clark were immense, ably supported defensively by Ayers, Brown and Westgarth. Brown started getting forward to link with Brinson, Dove and Jake Hannam, while Chatterley offered width and Williams troubled the back line.

After the break, Jake Hannam’s work-rate was rewarded with a 25-yard free-kick to make it 4-1. St George missed a penalty, but the home side scored soon after, Clark putting through his own net. Rangers extended their lead with goals for Carter and Troy Hannam.

Weston Players 2

Portishead Town Colts 0

PLAYERS went into this Division 5 encounter with a strong Portishead team that played football far better than their lowly league position suggested.

In a tense first half governed largely in parts by the blustery conditions, Players created the better chances built on a solid goal keeping display by Dan Owen, who marshalled the backline of Jones, Ashmore and Riddle.

Owen and Smith went close with early chances and Joel Page was having a fine game in centre midfield, and Steve Ballantine making his first start on the left was causing all sorts of problems.

Players took the lead after classy one-touch football from Page, DeVanney and Earey saw the latter’s through ball found Smith to finish well.

After the break, it was much of the same. Owen went close, DeVanney saw his effort saved and Skinner crashed a close range header against the bar from DeVanney’s cross.

Solid defending from Ashmore, Brown and man of the match Riddle kept Owen in goal well protected. Jim Owen slammed in his 100th goal for Players from the edge of the box after good approach play from Page and Smith.

Yatton Athletic A 0

Shipham Res 3

SHIPHAM Reserves ended their league campaign on a high with a superlative 3-0 victory against a strong Yatton side, giving them precious momentum before the cup final.

Jamie White put Shipham ahead inside a minute after a brilliant passing move. George Stone kept the scores level with a brilliant save, while the back four remained solid and restricted Yatton to shots from distance.

After the break, Bobby Dugmore was instrumental in the second goal, setting Paul Stead free to cut the ball back for Seb Winter to volley into the net.

The third goal came after good work by Ben Drake and Dugmore, with Winter putting the gloss on a fantastic team performance.

Man of the match was awarded to Bobby Dugmore.
