Bournville Rovers 0

A BELOW par performance sent Hutton to the top of Division 1, three points clear of their main rivals KVFC.

Bournville played the better football in the first half, but new signing Matt Huxtable opened the scoring for Hutton with a well taken goal.

It took a strong team talk at half time to wake Hutton up and they got their second with other new signing Mike Danver giving the keeper no chance.

Well done to all the team including subs of Greg, Aaron and young Dan Keenen.

Westlands Utd Res 3

St Georges EIG 1

AFTER last week's hard fought victory at Portishead, Westlands looked to maintain their unbeaten start to their Division 2 campaign against struggling St Georges.

The gale force conditions acted as a great equaliser and the visitors took an unexpected lead through a free kick. The visitors pushed forward looking to extend their lead, but were met by the resistance of the Westland back four of Whyte, Doyle, Sharp and Mace. Paul Wray had the best chance of the half for the home side, firing over from 12 yards.

In the second period, Westlands pressed for a way back into the game. Substitute Shane scored their deserved equaliser, firing into the top corner. The visitors heads seemed to drop and when Paul Wray netted from the tightest of angles to make it two.

A further goal late on from the prolific Wray completed the scoring and sealed victory for Westlands.

Manager Rich Carnall was pleased with his team efforts that saw them move up to second. The whole back four were candidates for the Greenfly Construction man of the match award, but this week it went to full-back Nick Mace.

Locking Park 0

Winscombe Res 4

MISSING five players from last week's win and again without a recognised keeper, management duo Guy Bradford and Steve Barker took their depleted squad to the top of Division 2.

From the off, Winscombe did not allow Locking to get any foothold in the game, as they smothered their hosts into mistakes, none more so than 16-year-old man of the match Matt Heal on his debut at right-back.

Going forward, it was Winscombe who posed the more serious threat with the central midfield pairing of Ben Redwood and Graeme Smith influential in every move. It was following their good work that released Jamie Hutchinson who was then fouled by Tom Rolls for a penalty. Winscombe's top scorer then dusted himself down to make it 1-0.

Referee Dave Pinnock then reduced Locking to 10 men following an off the ball incident.

Winscombe's Hutchinson combined well with strike-partner Jamahl McMurran, who drilled home to double the advantage before half-time.

Just moments into the second-half, Winscombe effectively finished the game off when 18-year-old hitman Hutchinson swept home his brace for his seventh goal of the season, before Smith deservedly put the icing on the cake to make it 4-0 with a powerful run and finish.

Weston United 6

Burnham United 2

UNITED'S re-building programme continued apace with a Division 3 victory over Burnham, with a squad that included seven teenagers.

Inspirational pre-match words from Hayes and his assistant Kent saw United roar out of the blocks and were 2-0 up within four minutes, courtesy of an impressive double from Hayes.

Burnham drew level through two goals from Lester, before Scott Davis saw United in to the break with a goal advantage.

Minutes after the re-start, the impressive Davis won a penalty which centre-back Andrew Lockyear converted. Oluwatobi Koiki stepped off the bench and made a valuable contribution, setting up new signing Daniel Hancock to make it five before converting a penalty himself after Andrew Hayes was felled.

Andrew Lockyear, Michael Hancock and Harry Wall all played well, but were edged out of the Stephens & Charge Supplies sponsored man of the match accolade by Andrew Hayes.

Weston United would like to send their best wishes to Les Bellew who goes in for a heart operation later this month.

Clevedon Dons 7

Banwell Reserves 0

THE early Division 4 exchanges favoured the Banwell outfit with the Dons back four of Lewis, Harris, Buckley and Farley dealing superbly with a bombardment of long balls.

The Dons upped the tempo, Mike Piscina rising highest to head home Al Pillinger's cross before James Pennington rifled in from 20 yards to make it 2-0 at the break.

The second half saw much of the same from the Dons with Pennington and Piscina causing problems up front. Pillinger was pulling the strings in the middle with Paul Sell giving a perfect example of the holding role and the pacy Skinner and Jeffery giving excellent width on the wings.

Pennington latched onto a Pillinger through ball and netted, then Piscina finished well for the fourth, firing home from 25 yards. Pennington completed his hat trick with a good finish before Pillinger finished off the move of the game.

A clever through ball from Skinner found Piscina whose audacious back heel was perfectly weighted for Pillinger who finished smartly. Joel Page replaced Piscina and could have had a hat-trick, only to be denied by the keeper on three occasions. Pillinger scored the goal of the game to round off proceedings with a stunning free kick.

Man of the match was Paul Sell who worked tirelessly in the engine room. The Dons would like to congratulate Mark & Nikki Pillinger on the birth of their baby girl Eva Marie.

Blagdon 5

South Park 0

SOUTH Park came into the game having had a mixed start to their Division 4 season.

They found themselves 1-0 down early on in the game and were making strides to get back in to the game when once again their goalkeeper had to come off injured. Scott Ferris once again stepped into the breach and was immediately called into action pulling off a great flying save.

South Park were desperate to get into half time one down, but it wasn't to be as a deflected shot gave Blagdon a 2-0 half time lead.

South Park found themselves 3-0 down shortly after the break when Blagdon broke through the South Park offside trap. South Park continued to battle hard, but with little hope of getting anything from the game.

Blagdon scored two more, their fifth was the goal of the game when a chip from just outside the area floated over the keeper.

The Balmoral Hotel man of the match was awared to Gib Keight, who displayed an excellent work rate and attitude.

Weston Players 2

Weston Super Seagulls 7

SEAGULLS continued with their new system and again it brought them a 7-2 Division 6 victory.

The defence of Hester, captain Fox, Banjo and Perrott looked solid throughout. The returning Marsh was outstanding in the centre of midfield, alongside Hewlett and Green. Farr, Beynon and Main caused problems with their pace when they went forward.

Seagulls went in at half time 2-0 up after goals from Hewlett & Beynon.

Changes at half time saw Green & Beynon go off for Kemp and Flay as the Seagulls rammed in another five goals. Hewlett completing his second hat-trick in two games, Farr grabbed one and Perrott scored a brace.

Players netted two long-range shots in the second half, which Balistic could do nothing about.

Brett Sedgbeer man of the match went to David Marsh and Dean Fox.

Worle Rangers 2

Sporting Weston 2

IN the swirling winds at Hutton Moor, Rangers battled their way to a deserved draw against top of the table Sporting Weston.

Rangers dominated the early exchanges, the midfield of Knight, McKee, Ingersent and Brinson working hard to provide for Brown and Willment up front.

However, Rangers were caught on the break and a good delivery from the left put Weston ahead after a good save from stand-in keeper Williams. Worle rallied and scored soon after, Ingersent in the right place to fire home after good work down the left by Brown.

Rangers' pace continued to threaten and Willment, playing with an injury, scored a deserved goal, gambling on a rare mix-up in the Weston defence to put Rangers 2-1 up. Just as Worle's usually reliable keeper was arriving late, it became 2-2.

Willment took a well-deserved rest and, with their usual keeper in goal, Rangers pressed forward with optimism and were the stronger team going into the break.
