East Worle 3

Hutton 0

THIS Division 1 top of the table clash was a must win game for both sides, who are desperate to finish at the top of the table.

This result will be a massive blow for Hutton, who need to end the season in the top two to secure promotion to Somerset senior football.

The hosts had the perfect start when Clive Griffith broke down the right outpacing Janzen Fox and slotted the ball past the keeper.

East Worle piled on the pressure and Hutton took 15 minutes to get a grip on the game. Greg Miller and Neil Bowen looked lively in the Hutton attack, but were quickly thwarted by East Worle's determined back line of Matt Hill, Somerset Council, Andy Dalton, Mark Pennington and Adam Hughes.

East Worle had Damien Thomas sent off after the break and had to dig deep to hold on. They managed to break away to make the scoreline 2-0 with Griffith outpacing Fox yet again and this time his unstoppable drive beat the keeper.

The visitors piled on the pressure, but couldn't break the hosts down. Captain Ash White and Andy Green worked tirelessly in the heart of the midfield, with the creativity coming from McKeever and Marquis.

McKeever's free kick late on was met with a Marquis header that ended Hutton's dreams for the day.

East Worle's ex-Hutton manager Paul White was delighted with the three points and the effort from every player in his side. The Old Inn man of the match was Clive Griffith.

Hutton Res 2

South Park Rangers 1

SOUTH Park's first game in seven weeks in Division 4 brought about a much improved performance.

Park were dominating play with Keight and Rowsell combining well up front. Ferris was holding the midfield and Harman-Taylor worked hard. Park found themselves 1-0 down after they failed to clear the danger from a corner.

They were awarded a penalty midway through the first half for a foul on Ratajczak, which Keight converted. The defence of Stott, Maselea, MgCini and Gerrett were putting up a fight and it was 1-1 at half time.

Hutton took the lead early in the second half when Park conceded a penalty. Headford, the Park keeper was agonisingly close to saving it but it crept just inside the post. Park pushed forward in search of the equaliser and dominated from here on in.

There were impressive midfield debuts from Adam Ratajczak and Rory Alderton, who provided much needed quality and support for the front two.

Park made a triple substitution with 25 minutes to go to try and get a goal, Ferris Harvey, Fowler and Gillingham (debut) came on. Park pressed and Gerrett proved a real nuisance at set pieces.

They created chances, but a combination of good goalkeeping and bad luck prevented them from scoring, and Hutton ran out 2-1 winners.

Park will take a lot of heart from this performance and will look to get their first win of 2010 when they entertain Westend next week.

The Balmoral Hotel man of the match was awared to Gib Keight.

Nailsea Utd Colts 1

Banwell Res 1

AFTER last week's great result against Cheddar, Banwell Reserves made their way to Nailsea to take on their young Colts side.

Banwell started the better and with skipper Mitchell shoring up the back line it was proving tough for Nailsea's youngsters to find the gaps. Appleby and Grubb started to dictate in the middle of the park and looked to link up with Carter who was finding space off Triffitt.

Triffitt was replaced by Shears, whose pace was soon an issue for Nailsea's defence and he linked up with Taylor and Carter straight away, but his effort just flew over the bar with the keeper well beaten, The second half started as the first ended with Banwell forcing the game and they were duly rewarded with the goal of the game. Carter found Grubb who set Payne free before delivering the perfect cross, which was met by Taylor.

Salmon then gave away a penalty which was converted and also gave him a red card to get Nailsea back in the game.

Banwell forced a corner in the last minute of the game after holding Nailsea,s attacks well and Payne's corner was met by Allan, whose header rattled the upright.

This week's man of the match went to Allan for a solid performance at left back.

Training is Tuesday nights 8.30-9.30pm at Priory on the Astroturf, please make an effort to attend the sessions.

Cheddar A 3

Westend 3

A STRONG attacking line up was sent out looking for a Division 4 win at Cheddar, but Westend had to settle for a share of the points.

The visitors took the lead after a sweeping move involving Morgan, Killcoyne, Bale, Smith and Jones eventually finding Will Joyce who made no mistake from the edge of the box.

Despite trying to build on the lead, it was the home side who wormed their way back into the game, capitalising on a mistake to poke home. Another mistake shortly after allowed a shock lead to be taken, the shot just beating keeper Scott Hunter.

With the half drawing to a close, a quick passing movement between Matt Peters and Jim Joyce freed Bale on the right. His pass was touched on by Rich Jones and the onrushing Ross Killcoyne lashed the ball into the top corner.

The second half started with the pressure coming from Cheddar. After working the ball down the right, the defence of Steve Jones, Bianca Jones and Matt Peters were caught out by a double flick of the head, the ball looping over the stranded keeper.

Westend in desperate need of a win quickly dusted themselves down, and it was no surprise when good work from Rich Jones and Kevin Bale found Will on the edge of the box to curl home his second.

In the dying moments of the game, Rich Jones had a chance to seal the win, but his shot was cleared off the line.

Man of the match was shared between Matt Peters and Will Joyce.

Weston Players 2

Worle Rangers 2

RANGERS picked up a useful away point in this even Division 6 match.

Both sides started slowly and neither was able to dominate in the early stages. Liam Willment was causing the Players defence plenty of problems with skilful dribbling and impressive pace.

Willment was fouled to give Rangers a penalty which was superbly converted by Dave Knight. Players equalised through Mike Prior just before the break as Rangers failed to clear the ball.

The second half continued in the same vein as the first. Rangers took the lead courtesy of another Knight penalty as Dave Taylor was pushed in the penalty box.

Players equalised with 10 minutes to go when Jim Owen's free kick was met by Rob Jones.

Rangers were indebted to fine defensive performances by skipper Matt Wilson and keeper Tom Williams who were excellent all afternoon.

Rangers man of the match went to Liam Willment for a fine performance. Man of the match for Players was Rob Jones.

Axbridge Town Reserves 1

Dolphin Athletic 4

DOLPHIN travelled to Axbridge for their first game in six weeks, looking to pick up from where they left off before Christmas.

Due to the conditions, both sides were struggling to put passes together and it took a freak goal to break the deadlock. Axbridge had started the brighter, and a shot managed to evade the Dolphin keeper and sneak into the net. Axbridge went close moments later, but keeper Hockey made a fine save to deny the hosts.

Dolphin began to play their way back into the game and after Kershaw was denied by the home keeper, another strong run from the right back, found him one on one with the keeper.

The keeper produced an excellent save, only to see the ball fall at the feet of Dave Reynolds, who calmly slotted in to bring the scores level just before half time.

Dolphin started the stronger in the second half and began to play the football that has made them promotion candidates, with Sam Green and Jamie Morris particularly impressing in the centre of the park.

Reynolds doubled his and Dolphin's tally, with a well taken finish and a Morris header increased the lead shortly after. The defence was performing strongly and Axbridge were finding Hockey at his best when they did get a chance.

A flowing move down the left, involving Heady and Pearson, set up player-manager Hagendyk, who rolled back the years, to produce a fine finish to complete the scoring, and secure another three points for Dolphin.

The Bristol Hotel man of the match was shared between Morris and Green.

St Georges (EIG) B 0

Weston Super Seagulls 8

SEAGULLS, even without their talisman Hester dominated this game from start to finsh.

Seagulls soared into a 5-0 lead at half time after goals from Motion, Main , Boyd and two from Hewlett.

Defenders Cacter, Oddy, Fox and Banjo stood firm against the aggressive attackers.

Marsh, Boyd, Perrott and Motion in midfield had their work cut out trying to play football substitutes Kemp and Green stepped straight in to provide support for Main and Hewlett up front.

Seagulls found themselves down to nine men after Kemp and Boyd had to retire through injuries.

This didn't stop the Gulls bagging three more goals. Hewlett getting two more and Motion his second.

An excellent team performance, but man of the match went to Dean Fox who was outstanding.
