Clevedon Utd B 0

Shipham Res 3

SHIPHAM Reserves reached their first cup semi-final after a fantastic away performance at second-placed Clevedon United in tough conditions.

The defensive discipline of Shipham restricted Clevedon to ambitious long shots, which never troubled keeper George Stone. Shipham took the lead when Seb Winter intercepted a back pass to score.

You may also want to watch:

After the break, a corner by Ben Shilton was dispatched at the second time of asking by Winter. The final goal was well-worked, Jon Rowsell cut out a pass, played a one-two with Jon Winter and floated a perfect ball to Matty Stewart, who volleyed the ball into the far corner.

Man of the match went to Oli Winter.

Clevedon Utd 2

SAINTS took on Clevedon United in this top of the table clash.

Saints were on the back foot from the start and it took a couple of good saves from Mike Lowe to keep the score 0-0, but it was no surprise when they took the lead. Saints slowly started to take control of the game and after a great passing move, Troy Hayes fired narrowly wide. Hayes soon found the back of the net after another great passing move.

Saints’ midfield of Lee Whittaker, Dan Hartley and Andy Young were running the game and should have taken the lead, but Neil Hartley headed wide.

After the break, Saints took the lead when Ryan Charalambous scored after a goalmouth scramble. Soon after Rob Winter set up Dan Hartley for a goal, but this was ruled offside.

Winter made it 3-1 shortly after with a smart finish, but Clevedon scored when Mike Lowe spilled a cross. The Saints back four of Hartley, Winter, Whittaker and Mitchell kept out Clevedon’s best efforts.

Substitute Tom Patrick came on and scored the fourth goal to seal the points

Mike Whittaker’s man of the match was shared between Lee Whittaker and Andy Young.

Wedmore Res 2

Weston Players 7

PLAYERS endured their worst 45 minutes before turning on the style to dispatch a dogged Wedmore side.

Wedmore took the lead when their centre forward fired over the stranded Dan Owen in goal. Curt Smith levelled after good approach play between Page, Randall and Earey.

Players took the lead on the half hour mark, Smith grabbing his second from Jim Owen’s cross, but Wedmore levelled just before the break.

After the break, a switch of wings for Randall and Skinner made a big difference and Randall scored from Smith’s cutback. They increased their lead on the hour when Skinner was felled by the advancing keeper and Smith stepped up to fire in his hat trick from the spot.

Randall made it five with the goal of the game, lashing in Smith’s pass. Smith fired in his second penalty after Owen was bundled over in the box and substitute Steve Ballantine rounded off proceedings with a goal.

Smith was excellent, Randall was dangerous and Earey was solid in the middle, but man of the match was Rich Skinner.

Worle Rangers 6

South Park Rangers 3

WORLE Rangers returned to form with a convincing win over South Park.

After a shaky start, Worle lost Jo Dale through injury, but the disappointment galvanised Worle and they put South Park to the sword. Two goals from Hannam either side of a Carter penalty and Dove free-kick were no more than they deserved.

After the break, South Park hit back with a couple of goals. The home side stood strong as a unit, skipper Wilson was commanding, Ingersent battled hard and with Royce making great saves they came through a difficult period.

Hannam got a third, but South Park scored again. A sixth for Worle finished the game though, put away neatly by the hard-working Williams.

Ben Westgarth was the pick from the first half, skipper Matt Wilson was a driving force all game and Troy Hannam’s hat-trick was excellent, but for three assists and a goal, the Curry Garden man of the match went to Tom Williams.
