LANGFORD Rovers increased the pressure on the pace setters in Division 1 West of the Somerset County League with this emphatic victory on the road at Banwell.

The visitors dominated from start to finish and opened the scoring with a 40-yard thunderbolt from the industrious William Sneddon-Coombs. Top scorer Tyler Davis doubled the lead on the counter attack to put the Bulls firmly in the driving seat.

A typical box to box performance from the hardworking Sneddon-Coombs was illuminated with a penalty for number three early in the second half, before a predatory double from Davis completed the scoring.

Grateful thanks are extended to match sponsor Capille Construction Ltd, who also awarded the man of the match award to Tyler Davis, who just edged out James Daley-Hodgkinson.

Winscombe 4

Cheddar Res 0

WINSCOMBE defeated Cheddar 4-0 to move up to third in Division 2 West.

The hosts started the brightest and scored after only 30 seconds. A free kick looked harmless, but the keeper dropped it and Massey was on hand to power home for his first of the season.

Things got worse for Cheddar as only a minute later, another error from the keeper saw the returning Clark fire home. It was 3-0 after only 15 minutes when the keeper again rushed out to miskick the ball straight to Hutchinson, who lobbed home from all of 30 yards.

Cheddar started the second half attacking Winscombe, but the defence of Chambers, Hosey, Horwood and Massey made sure Page was rarely tested.

Stoves and Hughes were controlling midfield again and it was no surprise when Winscombe scored again when a through ball found Hutchinson, who shot against the keeper only for the ball to rebound off a defenders chest to score.

He should have scored another soon after when he rounded the keeper only to shoot wide, while substitute Newman hit the post.

Winscombe Fish Bar man of the match was Massey. Winscombe’s next game is away to second-placed Worle.

Congresbury 1

Wells City Res 2

CONGRESBURY fell to their second defeat in a row against a strong Wells side.

The visitors started the better and keeper Danny Bullock had to make a few early saves as Wells dominated. Congresbury defenders Alex Read, Ash Flavell, Justin Seale and Liam Knight gradually settled into the game and it became a bit more of an even contest.

Midfielders Kyle Havard, Joe Whittaker, Seb Williams and Dave Blakely started the second half slightly on top and following a quick break, a good cross from Whittaker was superbly volleyed home by Will Scarrett to make the score 1-0.

Rob Harraway burst clear but was brought down just outside the penalty area, but the resultant free kick was fired high over the bar by Williams. Wells equalised when an unlucky deflection off Flavell gave Bullock no chance.

In the final minute, Wells snatched the points with a header that again was deflected past Bullock to make the final score 1-2. Debbie Fortune estate agents player of the match was Alex Read.

ON SATURDAY, Langford Rovers entertain St George Easton-in-Gordano in Division 1 West of the Somerset County League at the Woodspring Stadium.

Kick-off is at 3pm. Admission is £3 for adults and £2 for concessions.
