Winscombe 5

North Curry 0

WINSCOMBE gave a magnificent performance in defeating third-placed North Curry 5-0.

Inspired by Cureton, Winscombe took the game to the opposition from the off and Flint hit the bar after only a minute. With Hughes, King, and Stoves commanding the midfield, it was a surprise it took until the 40th minute for the home side to go ahead when Luke King netted from Stove’ cross.

King should have scored again when superb play between himself, Flint and Cureton saw him hit the bar with the goal gaping.

The second half started with Cureton scoring after only two minutes. Flint made it 3-0 when he beat the offside trap to score and Cureton scored his second with a great team goal.

Winscombe made substitutions with Willis, Dunkley and Hosey coming on. Willis made an instant impact by being booked for clattering the keeper. After this, Curry’s substitute got sent off, before Willis made it 5-0, before being sent off himself for a second booking.

The Winscombe Fish Bar man of the match was Cureton.
