Uphill Castle 2
Churchill Club 70 0
With long-term leaders 1610 Taunton United drawing at Ashton and Backwell United, Uphill Castle took over at the top of Division Two West of the Somerset County League.
Uphill dominated possession in the opening half and where first to threaten when an incisive one-two between Jack Askins and Paul Wray cut open the Churchill rearguard, but Wray placed his shot just wide.
