Weston St Johns 1
Clevedon Utd 0
SAINTS’ impressive second part of the season continued with this excellent win over Clevedon United.
The hosts were in control of the game from the start with chances for Lockyer and Clark going begging. The defence of the Flavell brothers, Pierson and Smit was dealing well with any threat the United strikers posed.

The second half carried on in the same manner with Saints creating plenty of good chances, but with some good goalkeeping and last ditch tackles it looked as though it was going to be a stalemate.
That was until Rob Winter fed Lockyer to turn on the edge of the box to fire low into the bottom corner to give Saints a well deserved three points.

WORLE played Weston St Johns Reserves in this local derby and came out deserved 2-0 winners.
Worle have been struggling of late to put their good play into winning games, but it all came together in this game. Dan Sandic and Rich Bushell caused Saints’ defence problems all afternoon with their pace.
Worle took the lead when a cross by Sandic eluded Allthorne in the St Johns goal and nestled in the far corner. Parker should have increased the lead when one-on-one with the keeper, but put his shot wide.
The home side looked defensively sound with centre backs Willan and Pierson coping well. The next goal came from a great cross by Parker finding Frazier Rendall, who made no mistake from close range.
The second half started more even with Ryan Harris commanding the midfield. Worle had further chances to increase the lead, but held on at the end, despite having a player sent off late in the game.
Man of the match was Ryan Harris.
WRINGTON won at Saltford to keep their hopes of promotion alive.
Despite losing seven first team regulars to illness and suspension, the away side soon became the dominant side, forcing several excellent saves from the home custodian.
Saltford battled gamely throughout, but as the second half got under way, Wrington’s account was opened in style by Mick Edmonds, dummying the defence to strike home in sublime fashion.
A second goal quickly followed through Craig Burchill bursting into the box to finish emphatically. Wrington’s dominance increased to a point where the home custodian performed miracles in keeping the score to two goals and drew generous applause from the Wrington travelling supporters.
Man of the match chosen by the supporters was Sam Johnson.
