Langford Rovers enjoyed a comfortable victory over Portishead Town Reserves.

Langford Rovers 4

Portishead Town Reserves 2

PLAYING Portishead for the second time in a few weeks, Langford started slowly, but once they got in to the game chances started to come.

The Bulls took the lead when a teasing cross from George King was put into his own net by a visiting defender.

Ryan Scott was then harshly adjudged to have impeded a visiting attacker, but made amends by saving the resultant penalty.

The advantage was doubled when the Town keeper could only assist a free-kick from midfield dynamo Warren Collins in entering the net.

Rovers made it three on 54 minutes when King nutmegged the keeper and Daniel Hartley was on hand to fire home the loose ball.

Another dubious penalty award and a header brought the score back to 3-2, but any hopes Portishead had of salvaging something from the game were quickly extinguished when a 70-yard sweeping crossfield ball from player-manager Jamie Patterson picked out Daniel Hartley to finish with aplomb.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Edge Barbers, went to Ryan Scott.

Worle 1

Winscombe 4

WINSCOMBE secured promotion to Division 1 by defeating 3rd place Worle 4-1.

The visitors started the brightest in front of a large crowd and went ahead after only five minutes when Stoves lobbed the onrushing keeper. Clark doubled the lead on 26 minutes before an own goal by Massey gifted Worle a way back into the game.

Page made an excellent save a few minutes later when the full-back shot from 25 yards, but other than that he was a relative spectator, while the defence of Heal, Hosey, Massey and Horwood were coping with everything Worle could throw at them.

Flint got his 32nd of the season to make it 3-1 at the break.

After the break, Collier could have scored the fourth when his shot hit the post and then he completely fluffed his rebound effort. Winscombe did make it four when good work by Mason and Newman saw the latter pick out Willis, who controlled and then hammered the ball home in the 90th minute.

Winscombe Fish Bar man of the match was manager Steve Barker.
