ANTHONY Askins’ Uphill Castle side made it seven consecutive wins across all competitions courtesy of this impressive victory on the road at Highbridge Town.
Despite starting slowly, Uphill were rewarded on seven minutes when captain Joe Boon’s goalbound effort found its way to Jordan Elliot who finished smartly.
The visitors spent the majority of the first-half on the back foot, but showed admirable game management with their back four, well marshalled by the safe hands of Luke Bryant.
The Castle upped the tempo after the break and increased their lead after good work on the right by Jack Askins, who fed Benjamin Harris to double the score. Uphill held out comfortably for the remainder of the match and could have increased their lead late on.
The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Fusion Fish & Chips, Chinese Takeaway & Oriental Restaurant, went to Joe Boon.
The club where keen to dedicate the victory to Uphill Castle Cricket Club, following the tragic events of last Monday.
On Saturday, Uphill Castle travel to Burnham United Reserves in Division 2 West of the Somerset County League (3pm).
WINSCOMBE’S good record against Glastonbury was dented as they slipped to a home defeat.
The home side’s superior possession counted for nothing as goals either side of half-time secured the points for Glaststonbury.
Winscombe manager Steve Barker said: “Once again we’ve played some decent football at times and have been undone by two lucky goals. We know we need to turn the possession into chances and if you make a couple of mistakes, you get punished.”
