Wrington Redhill 2
St Georges (E-i-G) 1
WRINGTON Redhill of Division 4 were drawn against St Georges who are going well in Division 2 in this Atwell Shield match.
The home side got off to the worst possible start when within 30 seconds of the kick-off, St Georges took the lead with a slick move. Captain Nick Buck settled his side and Wrington slowly got into the game.

Mick Edmunds, Paul Burnett and Nick Buck battled away in midfield, supported by wingers Will Mason and Joe Moore and Wrington deservedly got back on level terms when Moore hit the post, only for striker Chris Vowles to net the rebound.
After the break, Moore was unlucky not to score when his goal was ruled out for offside, but James Marshall got on the end of a great through ball and skilfully slipped the ball past the keeper to put Wrington into the next round.

Banwell Res 1
Worle Rangers 1
WORLE Rangers faced a strengthened Banwell Reserves side and came away with a point.
The front four of Willment, Liddiard, Owen and Stephens were bright and creative and had the home defence on the back foot. The pressure told as Stephens fed Willment who, after linking with Owen, returned to Stephens who slotted home.
Banwell responded and started to ask questions of the Rangers’ back-line, but found Williams, Wilson, Hannam and Brown in good form, with keeper Jakeman organising well.
As the game opened up, Banwell’s top quality midfielders drilled their wind-assisted efforts from 20-25 yards out and equalised when a ricochet squirmed inside the far post.
The second half was similar to the first, although a tactical change with Stephens dropping in to a five-man midfield. The game started becoming a tense affair and Rangers had two penalty appeals turned down as the game finished as a draw.
Wilson and Hannam defended stoutly and Nutt belied his young years with a mature performance. The Curry Garden man of the match went to keeper Matt Jakeman.
