Worle started the new season at home to Glastonbury, coming away with an excellent victory.

After a slow start, Worle started to get a foothold in the game but found themselves behind after Glastonbury were awarded a penalty against the run of play.

Worle sparked into life and due to the hard work of Tom Adams and managed to take the lead with two excellent goals.

Worle continued to pressure Glastonbury and after good play in the midfield, Ryan Hodrien made it 3-1 and brother Jack took Worle into a 4-1 lead. Worle continued to dominate and Ryan Hodrien gave the home side a 5-1 lead going into half-time.

After the break, Worle found it difficult to get out of their half due to the wind, but weathered all that Glastonbury could create and Adams completed his hat-trick with a cool finish.

Uphill Castle 3

Uphill Castle emerged victorious from a stern physical examination at Weston St Johns.

A frenetic opening saw Ashley Martin haul down Jack Askins, but Daniel Purnell kept the home side level with a stunning save from Samuel Beresford’s spot-kick.

The reprieve for the Saints was to prove short-lived, as on eight minutes a deep cross to the back post from Daniel Hartley was converted by Benjamin Harris.

The advantage was soon doubled when Askins turned on the edge of the area to beat Purnell on 15 minutes.

Another teasing cross from Hartley was met by a thumping header from Joseph Radcliffe to make it three and only another top draw stop from Purnell at point blank range from Harris prevented the visitors going in to the break four goals to the good.

Luke Page hit the bar for St Johns, but injured himself in the process and was replaced by Ashley Towler.

Daniel Sprague pulled a goal back early in the second period, closely followed by Jordan Elliot rattling the bar for the Castle.
