WESTON men’s 1st XI team returned from Old Bristolians with a comprehensive 9-1 victory, with striker Nathan Hancock scoring six.

The match began well with an early goal from Hancock, which breezed past the keeper’s right foot with ease after a few minutes of the game. Weston continued with their assault and another goal made its way into the net.

Thanks go to Bryant in goal, who had to make a few tricky saves to keep Weston at a healthy advantage.

The goals continued to come thick and fast with Weston player Sully slapping the ball like a missile in to the left corner of the goal. The first-half finished with a 5-0 goal advantage.

After the break, Echelles had a chance to increase the score, but Old Bristolians netted a consolation goal, due to a slip in concentration from the back four.

This led to Weston stepping up their game, where a few chances went forward and the ball fell to Sam Neate, who struck the ball on target which was saved well by the OB’s keeper.

But this was short lived as Matt Kearsey collected the deflected ball and flicked it back into the net. A few more goals materialised mainly thanks to Hancock completing his double hat-trick.
