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.

Captain Joseph Boon made a welcome return to the side and saw a header cleared off the line, before a neat interchange between Mitchel Childs and Samuel Beresford created the opportunity for Cameron Milkins to open the scoring.

Luke Bryant had a relatively quiet afternoon, but when called upon late in the half he made an assured stop.

After the break, Beresford had a shot from 20 yards saved before Milkins doubled the advantage with his second of the game.

Askins had a goal disallowed and the rampant home side created a number of further chances, but the scored remained the same.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Fusion, went to Samuel Beresford.
