Portishead Town B 3

Shipham 4

SHIPHAM made it three wins out of three in Division 3 with a fantastic comeback against Portishead.

Shipham went 1-0 behind, but bounced back almost immediately when a mazy Hobden run and pass allowed Newson to score his fourth goal in two games.

Shipham lost a bit of focus and concentration and conceded a couple of poor goals from close range which gave Portishead a 3-1 half-time lead.

After the break, the game went from end to end with Newson missing a glorious chance and an incredible goalmouth scramble being cleared by Portishead, frustrating Shipham further.

North Worle 4

Wrington Redhill Res 6

WRINGTON Redhill Reserves extended their unbeaten start to the season to eight games in a scrappy cup match, but not without receiving a scare from fourth division side North Worle.

Wrington made a good start as Buck broke up play in midfield and set Rouvrais free to score inside three minutes, but soon after Worle equalised, before Wrington took the lead again through Joe Moore.

Moore turned provider five minutes later, with a delightful chip for Buck to lob the on-rushing keeper, putting Wrington in control at the break.

After the break, Worle hit back and were soon level, but again Wrington responded, with Buck set up Moore for his second goal.

Worle were still not finished as Wrington failed to deal with another long ball, allowing the home side to equalise again.

Wrington finally put the game safe as Rouvrais headed powerfully home from a Buck corner and man of the match Faulkner netted his first of the season.
