Winscombe Res 1

Hutton 2

A RESURGENT Hutton edged a tight and scrappy game to reach the Knockout Cup final after extra time.

Winscombe started the brighter, hitting both the bar and post in the first 10 minutes and it was the home side that took the lead through a penalty midway through the half.

Hutton pushed for an equaliser and early in the second half were presented with a penalty of their own after a foul on Jenkins, only for Dan Jones’ spot kick to be saved.

Time looked to be running out, but with only minutes to spare, subtitute Adam Webber hit a stunning volley from outside the box to level the scores and force extra time.

Extra time produced no clear opportunities and penalty kicks looked required until Hutton captain Damon Smith unleashed a 35 yard screamer into the top corner to take Hutton into the final.

Hutton man of the match was the excellent William Jewell.

Banwell Reserves 2

Worle Rangers 1

WORLE Rangers fell at the first hurdle of the Keyes Cup at Banwell.

Rangers were positive from the first whistle, using the pace of the wide men Brinson and Willment and the front two of Williams and Chatterley.

A hand-ball on the line in a goalmouth scramble presented Rangers with a penalty, which Carter tucked away for an early lead. Willment linked well with Mickey Ayers, while Brown got forward to stretch Banwell’s back-line.

Keeper Dave Ayers showed safe hands early on and with skipper Wilson and centre-back partner Clark, Rangers were well organised and the midfield pair of Bray and Carter worked hard. The home side grew in confidence and equalised against the run of play.

Banwell took the lead early in the second half and although further changes with Liddle and Watts were positive, Rangers passing game never got going and Banwell just did enough to see the game out, their all-round experience being the difference.

Liam Willment was the Curry Garden man of the match.

Congresbury A 2

Shipham Res 3

SHIPHAM Reserves went someway to making up for a drubbing at the hands of Pill last week by battling to a 3-2 cup victory over Congresbury.

Shipham fell a goal behind early in the first half, but quickly levelled the tie with Ollie Winter volleying in a Jon Winter cross. It got better for the Rams, with Ollie repaying the favour for Jon to slot in from close range.

Shipham had keeper George Stone to thank for going into the break 2-1 up after a fine save to stop a certain Congresbury goal.

After the break, Shipham tried to build on their lead, but were pegged back to 2-2 after a scrappy move was thundered home

A moment of magic came by the way of a 40 yard Martin Stone free kick, which looped over a shaky Congresbury keeper to make it 3-2 to Shipham. The visitors were awarded a penalty after Seb Winter was bundled over. Sam Roberts scored, but the referee disallowed it for encroachment, but he missed the second attempt.

Man of the match went to Ollie Winter.

Weston St Johns Res 1

Nailsea Utd 0

SAINTS knew a win would put them 10 points clear of Nailsea in Division 1.

Saints started well with Rob Winter and Troy Hayes linking well and Hayes forcing an outstanding save from the Nailsea keeper. Dan Hartley was next to test the keeper and he then missed an easy chance, firing wide from 10 yards.

Andy Young and Troy Hayes were causing Nailsea problems and the outstanding Lee Whittaker was at the heart of all Saints’ good work. Andy Hayes was next to miss the target, firing wide after another good save from the United keeper.

After the break, Winter should of scored but fired straight at the keeper from six yards. The goal finally came when Winter was brought down for a penalty. Troy Hayes made no mistake with a clinical finish.

Saints’ back four of Hartley, Mitchell, Winter and Joe Whittaker defended well and kept their fourth clean sheet in a row.

Mike Whittaker’s Building Contractors man of the match was shared between Joe Whittaker and Jason Mitchell.
