South Park Rangers 3

Wrington-Redhill 3

AFTER having a two week lay-off, Wrington made a sluggish start to this match and could not get into the game.

South Park put the visitors under constant pressure and totally dominated the first-half. Wrington’s normal solid defence left keeper Jonathan Burnett exposed and the home side went in at the break two goals up.

In the second half, Wrington looked a better side and started to create some good chances but it took 70 minutes for Wrington to pull a goal back from the penalty spot through Chris Vowles.

The introduction of Dan Burnett, Joe Wheadon, and Dan McMullan saw the visitors take control of the game, but a long ball was well finished by the South Park striker to put them 3-1 up.

Wrington were awarded another penalty which was well saved, but Nick Curtis scored from the rebound to give the visitors a fighting chance of snatching a point. McMullan scored with a header to level the scores and a share of the points that looked unlikely at half-time.

Wrington’s man of the match award went to Alex Blake.

Worle Rangers 1

Worle Res 4

WORLE Rangers came unstuck against a fired-up Worle reserves side.

The reserves took the lead after five minutes, when a long ball split the Rangers’ defence. Rangers continued to play well, with Young and Quick pulling the strings. Rangers equalised after 20 minutes after a good team move that started with Brown, who found Chatterley. He cut in and set the ball up for a great 25 yarder from skipper Quick.

Within five minutes Worle scored again and the half finished 2-1, but only thanks to goodkeeping from Hockey.

The second half saw more passion from Rangers, but they struggled to keep the ball after losing Young through injury. Prime, Royce and Horsnell defended well, covered throughout by the excellent Clark.

Stephens, Brown and Chatterley threatened in forward areas, and Williams, Milsom, Gray and Quick battled superbly, but it was all to no avail.

Another long ball from Worle forced Horsnell into a late challenge and Worle won a penalty and converted. As Rangers chased the game, Worle scored fourth.

The Curry Garden man of the match was veteran Steve Clark.
