Worle Res 2

Cleeve West Town A 1

AN organised and determined Worle team earned their first league win of the season, beating Cleeve West Town 2-1.

Despite losing their keeper early on, an organised defensive display gave the team a solid foundation. Loach and Parker dominated the aerial battles in midfield, and up front, Hussey and Dunleavey looked a constant threat.

Worle proved dangerous down the right hand side due to the speed and movement of Ed Clarke and took the lead at the start of the second half after a neat turn and finish from Dunleavey.

The second soon followed when Matt Friday scored direct from a corner. Worle defended their lead convincingly and were unfortunate to concede late on

Ludos man of the match deservedly went to right back Matt Davies.

Nailsea Utd Colts 1 Westend 5

AFTER a run of three successive Division 4 defeats, Westend decided to go all out attack to arrest the slump in form.

Westend were quickly into their stride, with Mike Smith heading back across goal for Ian Wakenshaw to open the scoring. With less than five minutes gone, Westend doubled the lead after good work by Rich Jones, Ross Killcoyne and Dave White set up Wakenshaw for his second.

Westend were in control and it was no surprise when they went further in front. A quick break from Rich Wearing found Kev Bale on the left. His combination passing with Rich Jones released Smith who scored to make it 3-0 at the break.

In the second half, Steve Jones drove the team forward and it was his pass to Rich Jones that opened space for a cross to Wakenshaw. His header went up in the air and Dave White reacted quickest to smash home from close range.

Nailsea took heart from a late goal, despite the best efforts of Bianca Jones and a desperate dive from keeper Mark Rawlins.

The game was completed on a high as Wakenshaw completed his hat-trick from the edge of the box. It was his sixth goal in three games this season.

The Miami Vice man of the match award went to Ross Killcoyne.

East Worle Res 2

Portishead Colts 0

EAST Worle Reserves made it seven Division 5 wins out of seven with a 2-0 home win over Portishead Colts.

New manager Micky Reames decided on a new formation prior to kick off and the system proved difficult for Portishead to deal with, as East dominated the first half only to find the visiting keeper in outstanding form.

With the game still 0-0 10 minutes into the second half, Reames made the tactical switch of bringing Lee Veale on and this had the desired affect.

James Lotus tapped in from two yards after a goalmouth scramble and East made the game safe when 10 minutes from time, Veale smashed the ball home from 30 yards.

An excellent start for the new manager, who awarded the student union sponsored man of the match to Josh Allen.

Shipham Res 0

Worle Rangers 4

WORLE, unbeaten in three Division 6 games, started this game slowly and had to defend resolutely in the early exchanges against Shipham.

Rangers soaked up the early pressure and took the lead when Chris Brinson finished a mazy run with a cool finish.

The outstanding back four of Imrie, Wilson, Clark and Shier restricted Shipham to only one shot of note in the first-half, which was easily dealt with by Nathan Royce in the Rangers goal.

On the break, the pace of Brinson, Brown and Willment were proving a thorn in the side of the home defence.

In the second half, Worle spent longer periods of the game in the Shipham half with Dave Brown and Ayers dictating the play. Shipham almost equalised, but Royce saved well from close range.

Finally, great work from Adam Brown created the vital second goal for Brinson, who then completed his hat-trick with a composed finish soon after. Super sub Tom Willliams then laid on the fourth goal for Willment.

The Curry Garden man of the match was Chris Brinson.

Weston Super Seagulls 6

Banwell Res 2

SEAGULLS went into this game looking for their third straight win in the league, having made a great start to the campaign.

Hicks got the first goal for the Seagulls, but Banwell soon equalised. The Seagulls continued playing with confidence and went in 3-1 up at half-time after two goals from Hewlett.

Baz, Banjo, Fox, D’Arcy and Oddy were solid all day and with Ferry, Beynon, Havard and Boyd supplying some great chances for the strikers, the Seagulls went onto score three more with Beynon scoring one and Hewlett grabbing another two to make it 6-2.

This was an all-round excellent display from the Seagulls, who had the luxury of having Perrott, Hester and Harvey on the bench.

Man of the match went to Hicks for three assists and a goal.
