Winscombe 3

Fry Club 2

WINSCOMBE made it through to the semi-finals of the league cup by defeating Fry Club 3-2.

Winscombe started brightly, but it was the opponents who went ahead after three minutes when their centre forward headed past Page. It didn’t take them long to equalise when Flint was brought down by the keeper and Stoves put away the resulting penalty.

With Stoves, Clark and Hughes running midfield, Winscombe scored after nine minutes of the second half through Hutchinson. Newman came on for Chambers and this put Collier at full-back to join with Hosey, Horwood and the returning Hooper.

The home side went 3-1 up when Clark was allowed space to drive home. With five minutes remaining, Fry’s made it 3-2 after a mistake by linesman Merv Brean, who failed to see the ball go out and while the players were looking for a decision, the ball went in.

Weston St Johns 0

Congresbury 2

CONGRESBURY went fifth in the table with this win over St Johns in what was overall a poor game.

The first-half saw both teams cancelling each other out with Congresbury’s strikers Tony Tuckfield, Will Scarrett and Ross Stockhall wasting the few chances that came their way.

At the other end, defenders Ash Flavell, Dave Blakely, Liam Knight, Ben Shepherd and Justin Seale dealt comfortably with the rare St Johns attacks.

Just before half-time St Johns had the best chance of the half to open the scoring, but were denied by an excellent save by Rhys Sullivan.

The start of the second half saw St Johns dominating and keeper Sullivan again made an excellent save to keep the scores level. The introduction of Rob Harraway at half-time proved to be the game changer and when Kyle Havard’s quick pass found Stockhall, his shot was saved by the keeper, but Harraway was on hand to fire the rebound home.

Moments later, Seb Williams pass found Harraway and his well-placed shot gave the keeper no chance. Joe Whittaker went close with a long-range effort, but the game ended 0-2.

Debbie Fortune player of the match was Seb Williams.

ON SATURDAY, Langford Rovers travel to Burnham United in Division 1 West of the Somerset County League (3pm).
