THREE goals in each half saw Rovers maintain their promotion hopes in this Division 1 clash.

Rovers started well, and took the lead on 10 minutes, when a Wes Wilson through ball found Leigh White, who finished with a deft touch. Jamie Crandon made it two halfway through the first period, and Trevor Haslett added a third nearing half time.

Rovers should have been out of sight by half time, Grant Giles spurning the easiest chance, with others falling to Crandon, White and Haslett.

The second period saw much of the same, dominance at the back through Joe Popperwell and Ryan Harris, and an attacking intent which the home side could not contain.

Wrington Redhill 0

Weston St John's 1

ST JOHN'S produced a good all-round performance to record a well-deserved victory over a battling Wrington side.

Saints started the brighter with Mark Adams and Dan Hartley controlling midfield and Hartley created the first chance for Ross Stockhall who saw his shot go wide.

At the other end defenders Dave Wilcox, Mark Hearne, Ash Flavell and Joe Whittaker restricted the Wrington forwards to long-range efforts that were comfortably dealt with by keeper Ian Allchorne.

Wrington were proving hard to break down and chances came and went for Juzzy Flavell and Hartley.

The second half was more of the same with Hartley setting up a good chance which Stockhall missed from close-range. Flavell then saw the keeper make a good save before Hartley created another clear chance which Jack Clark fired wide and Hartley had a good shot saved by the Wrington keeper.

Saints eventually got the goal they deserved when Stockhall was brought down and Clark scored from the penalty spot.

Later, Flavell, Clark and Rob Winter missed good chances. City Plumbing player of the match was Dan Hartley.

Congresbury 8

Burnham 0

HAYDEN opened Congresbury's account on 35 minutes and this was followed by a well taken second from Rob Harraway as they recorded a comfortable win over the division's bottom club.

Five minutes into the second half, Tuckfield, who had already hit a post, scored the third. Kai Hammond on 71 minutes headed home from a corner, Harraway scored a minute later and on 77 minutes, Kai Hammond's shot took a deflection off substitute Nigel Lush.

A tricky dribble resulted in Chris Goldsbrourgh being brought down and Harraway converted the penalty to complete his hat-trick. Hammond scored the eighth deep into injury time. Congresbury need to carry this form into the next game at home to Chedder.
