Worle 4 Banwell 1

WORLE eased past Banwell in this Somerset Senior Cup second round match.

It was Banwell who took the lead when a speculative shot squirmed underneath Hill in the home goal. Although having the majority of the play, Worle could not convert chances into goals. Hannam blazed over with the goal at his mercy and good wing play by Bushell created chances and Worle soon equalised when Bail headed in from close range.

Looking the stronger side, Worle went into the lead with good build-up play which found Sumption in the box who made no mistake.

Worle made three substitutions bringing on Gustar, Tyler and Griffiths and soon increased their lead when Gustar coolly finished. Gustar then rounded the game off for Worle when he scored his second and Worle’s fourth of the game.

The game was somewhat spoiled when Banwell finished the game with two players sent off.

Special mention to Lach Geddes who stood down as manager before the game, with Gary Coles stepping in to take charge.

Ludus man of the match was James Harvey

Next game is the Somerset County Cup fixture at Berrow from Division 1, kick-off 2pm..

Weston St Johns 2 Bishop Sutton Res 3

ST JOHNS fell to a disappointing Somerset County League Division 1 defeat in a game that they had enough chances to win.

Saints had the best early chances, but Levi Marlow and Juzzy Flavell hit their shots wide. Sutton took the lead when a quick free-kick caught Saints out and a striker fired the ball past Joe Malik.

This stung Saints into life and the midfield of Mark Adams, James Wotton, Jack Clark and James Bennelick started to control things. Saints had more chances with Marlow and Flavell again failing to test the keeper.

Saints got the equaliser they deserved when a deep cross from Nick Jones was headed past the keeper by Marlow. Saints continued to press and Wotton fired wide. Sutton regained the lead when Saints gave away a needless penalty to make the half-time score 1-2.

Saints defenders Dean Pierson, Matt Vann, Mark Hearne and Jones started the second half well and Saints took control, but again wayward shooting from Flavell and Marlow was proving costly as Saints searched for the equaliser.

After controlling the game and limiting Sutton to counter attacks, Saints went 3-1 down following a mix up between the defenders and Malik. Saints continued to waste chances until the last minute when a good pass from Ryan Hodrien was flicked on by Wotton and the lively Kevin Cosham raced through the Sutton defence and beat the keeper.

Bookers Wholesale player of the match was Dean Pierson.

Bridgwater Town Res 0 Cheddar 6

CHEDDAR recorded a superb result at a ground where no-one can remember getting more than a point previously.

It was not long before Adam Jones warmed the Bridgy keeper’s hands for the first time and Cheddar’s opening goal came when a superb corner by Lewis Matthews was converted by Paul Whittaker.

Cheddar doubled their lead when a clever free kick by the influential Manning lobbed the ball up for Mike Kay to score. It took a fine save by Ben Dancey in Cheddar’s goal and a fantastic header off the line by Panes to keep Cheddar two goal lead.

At the back, Whittaker, Underhill, King and Honeywell were on form and it was Whittaker who netted the third goal.

From that point on it became anther Adam Jones masterclass as he scored two quality goals to take his tally to five goals in three games.

Cheddar wrapped up the scoring with their sixth when substitute and top scorer Callum McManus finished coolly from close in. McManus, along with the other subs Rob Edwards and Paul Marquiss, made excellent contributions in their time on the pitch.

On Saturday, Cheddar take on Purnells in the 
Senior Cup, followed by a midweek top of the table clash against Shirehampton next Wednesday
