Shipham defeated near neighbours Winscombe 6-1 to record their second victory on the trot.

Shipham 6

Winscombe 1

SHIPHAM came into this match having won their first game of the season the week before and were looking to make it two wins in a row.

Shipham took the lead early on when a Chris Green cross found Liam Page unmarked to tap home. They extended their lead soon after when an Alex MacLucas through ball was miscollected by the keeper, allowing Stu Newson to notch his first of the season.

Winscombe pulled a goal back, but Shipham got their third goal after Mitch Corrick played a ball over the top, which Newson guided it across the keeper to make it 3-1 to Shipham at half-time.

After the break, the fourth goal came when Kyle Hobden floated a ball into the box which captain Ben Hollow volleyed home. Shipham got their fifth, a hat-trick for Newson when a long kick from keeper George Stone was finished off well.

Winscombe were awarded a penalty, but Stone saved his fourth consecutive penalty. Shipham then added a sixth when Newson played in Green to beat the advancing keeper.

The defence of Kozaj, Hollow, Simmonds and MacLucas defended well and with Lewis guarding them from midfield, Winscombe were always going to struggle to add to their one goal.

Man of the match was Stu Newson.

Cheddar A 1

Worle Rangers 13

RANGERS won their opening tie in the cup with a fine 13-1 win against Division 3 side Cheddar.

Rangers simply blew their opposition away and were 5-0 up within 25 minutes with goals for James Nutt (2), Charlie Dugmore, Jamie Stephens and Tom Coleman.

The back four of Gavin Nott, Jake Hannam, Dean Bray and Adam Brown were rarely troubled in the first-half and Martin Williams was a mere spectator in goal.

Coleman completed a first-half hat-trick and Dugmore added a fantastic solo effort for Rangers to go into the break 7-0 up.

Cheddar tried to rally in the second half, but the superb central midfield partnership of Chris Brinson and Andy Young broke up play well.

Dugmore became the second player of the afternoon to grab a hat-trick as his dipping 25-yard free kick eluded the Cheddar keeper.

A rare attack saw a consolation goal for Cheddar, but Rangers responded with two swift goals for Stephens and Nutt. The rout was complete with Coleman and Dugmore scoring late on.

Full-backs Nott and Brown were always an outlet, Nutt, Stephens and Coleman worked brilliantly together up front, but the Curry Gardens man of the match went to Charlie Dugmore.

Wrington Redhill Res 2

Burnham Utd A 1

WRINGTON Redhill Reserves extended their unbeaten start to the season to seven games as they began this season’s cup campaign with victory over Burnham.

The hosts took the lead in the fifth minute when Tom Johnson scored from the edge of the box. Johnson netted his second soon after, following a clever back-heel from Joe Moore.

The second period was a complete contrast to the first, as Wrington struggled to find their rhythm, despite the midfield three of Burnett, Moore and Mick Edmunds playing well.

Keeper James Vowles were largely untroubled and both Nick Curtis and man of the match Phil Williams had good games. Burnham scored a consolation goal with 10 minutes to go, but held out for a fine win.
