Worle top the league after another victory, this time against Cheddar Reserves.
Cheddar Res 0
WORLE went clear at the top of the league in an unconvincing 4-0 win at home to a young Cheddar side.
Worle started quickly and a cool finish from Ryan Hodrien gave Worle the lead in the first minute. Cheddar were trying to counter attack, but found it hard playing against a strong wind and their plight was not helped when Barry Flynn headed in Worle’s second goal from a corner.
Worle attacked through the wings with both Ollie Clements and Rich Bushell delivering crosses for the front two of Hodrien and Sprague.
For the first 20 minutes of the second half, Cheddar were the better side and Worle’s flowing football disappeared, but the back four of captain Potter, Gibbons, Hodrien and Crandon stood firm and chances then started to come again for the home side.
It was the introduction of Worle’s all-time leading goalscorer Rio, who put the game out of touch when within five minutes of coming on, he helped himself to a brace with two coolly-taken chances.
Before the game, Worle signed Peter Wright from Langford Rovers.
Worle’s next game is away to Nailsea Town (3pm) and they will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the league.
Clevedon Utd Res 1
Kewstoke Lions 1
KEWSTOKE were just five minutes away from three wins out of three in this game, which saw another different line-up, with players still missing.
It was a slow start from the away team, but started to cause problems with 15 minutes of the first-half remaining. Aaron Bray took a ball down in the area and showed good composure to fire Kewstoke into a lead.
A few minutes later, Hockey had a shot tipped onto the post that seemed certain to double the lead. Kewstoke did not want half-time to come, as Marquis, McManus and the Vowels brothers got into the game and Popperwell worked tirelessly.
Clevedon dominated much of the second half in terms of possession, but did not offer any real threat in front of goal. Kewstoke created a couple of openings, but defended well as a team with Wilson, Blake and Reyes working well at the back.
Clevedon equalised when Banks raced onto a header and fired past Blake in the Kewstoke goal.
The Windsor Pub man of the match went to Ben Popperwell.
