WESTLAND continued their unbeaten run to three games with a hard-fought victory against fellow strugglers Wedmore.

On a hard and uneven pitch, Westland dominated the early stages in terms of possession and chances, the best falling to Jack Cochrane, who shot over the bar from eight yards.

Corry Thomas and Josh Morris worked tirelessly all afternoon up front for the home side and it was Thomas who broke the deadlock with a great finish from 18 yards just before half-time.

The work rate of Thomas was proving to be a real handful for the Wedmore backline, and a defensive mix-up early in the second half resulted in the hitman doubling Westland’s lead.

Wedmore hit back well and a perfect 20-yard effort into the top corner brought them back into the contest. As the visitors pressed for an equaliser, they were met by the Westland back four of DeVanny, Whyte, Bond and Moore.

Despite the visitor’s dominance in the latter stages, home keeper Tim Malessa was not troubled, apart from claiming several crosses from corners.

Worle Rangers 4

Selkirk Res 0

WORLE Rangers moved up to fourth in the table after picking up three points against Selkirk Reserves.

Nott, Wilson, Westgarth and Clark won everything in the air and Bray and Tom Williams worked hard. Young looked to get Rangers playing and Brinson, Dale and Willment were a constant threat to Selkirk and any rare threat on the Rangers’ goal was dealt with by Jakeman.

Willment fired inches over and Young went close with a free kick, but the first-half finished goalless.

After the break, Charlie Dugmore was brought on with 30 minutes to play. Soon after he put Rangers in front and then Young’s shot was deflected to make it 2-0.

Brinson’s invention had an end product as he fed Dugmore, who topped his first effort with a bullet of a shot into the top corner. Tom Williams’ work-rate set up namesake Luke, who finished with aplomb to make it 4-0.

Steve Clark was outstanding in his first game back from injury and skipper Matt Wilson was commanding. However, the Curry Garden man of the match went to Charlie Dugmore.

Weston Players 2

Worle Res 0

PLAYERS bounced back from their cup exit last week with a solid performance against a good Worle side.

In a goalless first-half, Players had the better of the chances, Skinner heading over from a corner, Waterhouse and Randall being denied by good saves.

Randall and Thompson were dictating the play with Bush and Owen working hard up front, but struggling for the end product. Jones, Williams, McConnachie and Raymond were assured in defence, with Skinner tirelessly breaking up the Worle attacks.

The second half was more one-sided as Players started to impose on the game. Tom Bush stabbed home a loose ball from a corner to put Players one up. Defending against a roused Worle side, Players were confident with McConnachie and Raymond particularly impressing, dealing well.

Bush scored an excellent second, racing on to a long Dan Owen pass before cooly slotting past the keeper. Thompson, Waterhouse, Ballantine, Owen and Randall all saw chances go begging, but Players saw out a deserved victory.

McConnachie, Thompson and Randall impressed, but man of the match was shared between Raymond and Bush.
