East Worle 12

Yatton Res 2

HIGH-flying Yatton who currently top Division 2, were hoping to cause an upset in the Atwell Shield.

After a bright start Yatton should have taken the lead when keeper Matt Hill saved well on a one-on-one.

Against the run of play East Worle took the lead when Steve Owen powered a header into the top corner from a Mark McKeever corner, and from that moment the hosts dominated, creating chance after chance. Further first-half goals were scored by Clive Misses, Paul Marquis (2) and Owen completed his hat-trick.

A rare lapse in concentration in the backline of Jono Collins, Ash White, Mark Paddington and Pete Allen allowed Yatton to score a consolation first-half goal.

East Worle were able to introduce all three substitutes which temporarily disjointed them allowing Yatton to score their second goal.

Joe Averbarbi battled hard, winning everything in the midfield, along with Ben Cornish who was rewarded with a 20-yard strike from a clever McKeever free kick. Chris Dribblin beat several players down the right wing before rounding the keeper.

Griffith added his second, Marquis completed his hat-trick, Owen got his fourth and the impressive McKeever curled in his first East Worle goal from 25 yards.

Ginsters man of the match went to Ben Cornish.

East Worle are currently looking for a reserve team manager who compete in the Weston and District League Diiviion 4. Anyone interested can contact Paul White or Pete Land

Winscombe Res 3

Worle Res 0

AT the third time of asking Winscombe recorded their first Division 2 win of the season with a convincing victory in which the scoreline could have easily been doubled.

After last week's mauling by Clevedon United A in the Charity Cup, manager Guy Bradford was looking for a positive response, and he got exactly that from his promising young guns.

Without a keeper, midfielder Jake Hartrey answered the call of duty between the posts and ironically kept their first clean-sheet of the season.

But, in truth, he had little to do, with only a few efforts on target thanks to his impregnable fortress of skipper Jack Milton, Weston youth player Jury Cureton, Rich Hall and Paul Underwood in front of him.

In midfield Winscombe oozed class, with ex-Yeovil and Bristol City trainees Matty Wright and Adam Pearson controlling the engine room with wing-wizards Matty Pearson and Ben Redwood dominating.

Replicating their pre-season form, Winscombe played some attractive football and deservedly took the lead when top scorer Jamie Hutchinson controlled Milton's centre before smashing home his fifth goal of the season.

It quickly became 2-0 when another Milton delivery was met by 16-year-old Matt Pearson who finished clinically before half-time.

After the break Winscombe continued to hold the upper hand with Weston youth player Jamahl McMurran and Redwood's pace giving Worle the run around. And Redwood proved a little too hot to handle as his mazy run was up-ended in the box and skipper Milton converted the resulting penalty kick.

Locking Park 3

St George (EiG) Res 1

ANOTHER solid performance from Locking gave them a Division 2 victory over a strong St George team.

The visitors started the better and scored after 15 minutes. Third-choice keeper Yozzer did well to deny the first effort. Locking managed to get control of the game after this with the new partnership of Quinny and Winnie running the middle of the park and Quinny's ball over the defence that sent striker Dancer in to slot past the keeper for his fifth of the season.

With a quarter of the game to go a free kick 30 yards out was drilled home by Tom Rolls with the keeper left rooted, and a late header from Will Poole sealed victory for the home side.

Axbridge Town 5

Bournville Rovers 2

AXBRIDGE eased past their Division 1 opponents in the preliminary round of the Atwell shield. Clarets manager Leon Parsons and Rovers manager Alan Cooper were both faced with selection problems leading up to the game, this without a doubt made a difference to the final score line.

Town opened the scoring on 20 minutes when, from Percy Foord's corner, Matt Fear scored. The lead only lasted 10 minutes as a Rovers striker managed to turn Aaron Honeywell 10 yards from goal and score. Town stepped up a gear with captain Sammy Lawes and Dan Tullett encouraging their players on, the midfield duo Alan Masland and Matt Fear started to control the game creating a chance for man of the match Marcus Holmes to pick out Foord who made no mistake.

The half-time team talk was focused on getting the ball wide to Craig Fear, Alex Gilmour and Foord as this is where Town seemed to be having the most joy.

Ten minutes into the second half Olly Geirmann put Holmes through to score. Bourneville got back to 3-2 with 12 minutes to go this led to Parsons bringing on Saul Dawson and James Cheng to liven up the team.

This seemed to work and Town went 4-2 up after another Foord corner was headed home by Honeywell and with three minutes remaining, great work by James Cheng led to the ball falling to Fear who put Holmes clean through who again finished well.

Weston United 5

Kewstoke Lions Res 4

FOLLOWING the defection of manager Puddy and 14 players to Somerset County League side Churchill, new manager Hayes, assistant kent and director of football Stephens managed to field a side that pulled off a win.

Kewstoke took the lead before a double from Troy Hayes put United in the driving seat.

Michael Vincent increased United's lead before Kewstoke pulled another goal back prior to United's fourth from Hayes to complete his hat-trick.

Kewstoke pulled it back to 4-4 before Hayes gave the home side the victory they deserved.

Abradovic. Youstar and Dove had claims for the man of the match award which was sponsored by Players Sports Bar but in the end the accolade was shared between 46-year-old veteran Michael Norton and 16-year-old Hayes who took his tally to six goals from three games.

Dolphin Athletic 6

St George (EiG) B 0

DOLPHIN welcomed St George to the Moor Ground for this high scoring Division 6 game that saw them keep up their winning start to the season.

The home side passed the ball around easily in the middle of the park and put together some good chances but were foiled by the St George keeper. They took the lead when Wright's looping header bet the keeper and they made it two when Wright scored from outside the box.

In the second half Dolphin made it three when McCabe finished off a good flowing move, then added a fourth when a long ball by Hockey cleared the St George defence and found Bollen who chipped over the keeper.

St George started to come back into the game but failed to get past the defence of Boucher, Heady, Lewis and Kershaw. Dolphin manager Hagendyk changed his side's formation to 3-5-2 bringing on Laing and Reynolds for Boucher and McCabe and it was not long before Reynolds scored the fifth. Ten minutes later Dolphin rounded off the scoring when a Heady run saw him square the ball across the face of the goal for Reynolds to grab his second of the game.

The Bristol Hotel man of the match went to Aaron Bollen for a superb performance and goal.

Yatton Athletic A 2

Weston Super Seagulls 7

SEAGULLS got back to winning ways in Division 6 in emphatic style this week. After last week's awful performance manager Hester tried a new system which worked perfectly. Hester also shuffled a few players around including moving himself into centre back and Hewlett into centre midfield.

The changes worked instantly as Seagulls rushed into a two-goal lead through an own goal and Main.

Stand-in keeper Banjo was quiet but when needed did not put a foot wrong. The new back four of Pez, Fleck, Hester and Mad-dog were solid and not a thing got through them in the first half. Green, Boyd, Hewlett, Main and Beynon adjusted to the new system with ease and controlled the game from the start, playing outstanding one-touch football.

Beynon caused chaos every time he got the ball, Hewlett grabbed a good hat-trick and Olly Poke scored two quality goals. Farr on his own up top worked hard and on another day would have scored many..

Yatton managed to get two goals in second half through defensive errors but all in all a fantastic performance from the Seagulls.

Window Merchants man of the match went to the Craig Beynon.
