Kewstoke Lions worked hard to earn a point at high-flying Glastonbury.

Glastonbury 0

Kewstoke Lions 0

WITH Kewstoke looking to put the disappointment of a cup exit the previous week behind them, they travelled to in-form Glastonbury.

With suspensions and absents again hindering Kewstoke, they started well in tough conditions. Kewstoke defended well from the start and were let off the hook when the home side had a goal disallowed for a handball.

You may also want to watch:

Kewstoke also had the ball in the net in the first-half, but were denied by an offside decision as the half ended goalless.

Kewstoke started the second half the better team and dominated the early part of the half with the new central midfield partnership of Davies and Channing pulling the strings and the forward line of Popperwell and Donnelley a constant nuisance.

All the Kewstoke players had fine games, but the Windsor Castle man of the match was Samuel Davies.

Weston St Johns 1

Minehead 0

SAINTS completed a league double over Minehead thanks to a fine long-range strike from Ryan Hawkins.

St Johns dominated from the start and Minehead had their keeper to thank for keeping the score down, while Saints’ keeper Ash Harrison had an easy afternoon thanks to his back four of Benny, Hudson, Kez and skipper King.

Coombes, Hawkins and White were all foiled by the Minehead keeper, as Saints’ midfield of Clarke, Churchill, Hawkins, McManus and Coombes won their mini battles.

Minehead were reduced to 10 men when a horrendous tackle on Hawkins was met with a deserved red card for the defender.

Saints had a few contenders for man of the match, but manager Benny opted for Jack Clarke.

Wrington Redhill 2

Brislington Res 0

ANOTHER large crowd gathered at the Rec in anticipation of a close game between these two sides at the top of the table.

The home side saw off the initial first thrusts from a lively Brislington side and opened the scoring after 23 minutes through a fine team goal involving six players with the impressive Chris Gayle picking out the magnificent Cheeseman, who smashed home from 10 yards.

With 10 minutes to go before half-time, Gayle cheekily lobbed the away keeper from 20 yards to double their lead.

The second half saw the home side keep their shape, with the imperious Sam Johnson and equally impressive Nathan Best in top form, ably supported by captain Mark Andow and Jake Murray.

It took 85 minutes before Brislington had an effort on target with a sweetly-struck shot seemed destined for Mark Wilson’s top corner, until the keeper palmed away the danger for a corner.

The Wrington Redhill presidents of vice choice of man of the match went to Graham Cheeseman.
