CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR: Bath Road take spoils in Derby day duel
10:22am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
LEAGUE newcomers Bath Road FC kept themselves in the Division Four promotion race with a hard fought 4-2 win away at fellow Chippenham-based sided Oakhill.
Nick Manifold, Matt White’s headed effort from a Ryan Hopkins cross and Luke Carrington’s spectacular 25-yard strike for Bath Road cancelled out Clint Couzens' first half strike for the home team.
Things were a lot closer in the second period, with Robbie Burton scoring for Oakhill, but his eighth goal of the season counted for nothing as a Tim Knight penalty secured victory for Bath Road.
Bremhill View Boys 4 Cavalier FC 0
After suffering their first loss of the season last weekend, Chris Edes saw his Bremhill View Boys side bounce back by taking maximum points off bottom-of-the-table Cavalier.
Goals from Stuart Windsor and Dave Lymath put Bremhill two-up at the break and the second period saw Billy Gleed net twice to hand the home team their fourth win of the campaign.
Cross Keys Rowde 1 Corsham Centre Youth 8
An 8-1 win for leaders Corsham Centre Youth away at fellow newcomers Cross Keys Rowde saw them consolidate their spot at the top of the table.
Both teams had the opportunity to open the scoring before the Centre broke the deadlock on 20 minutes when Liam Ralph crossed for Stuart Tutty to head home.
In the 30th minute, Rich Boore crossed for Mark Sharratt to knock in for 2-0 and five minutes later the same player slammed home his second and the Centre’s third before Darrin Moss volleyed home number four on 40 minutes.
It took until the 60th minute for Centre to score their fifth against by now a ten man Cross Keys, Josh Batstone netting in his first for the club.
On 75 minutes Adam Shipman cut in from the left and curled the ball into the top of the net for number six and ten minutes from time, Moss scored his second and the Centre’s seventh with a strong strike.
Tom Castleman claimed the hosts consolation goal but Ralph rammed in number eight after Adie Webb’s stunning strike was tipped onto the crossbar/
Melksham Forest Community Centre 4 The Mallard FC 0
Melksham Forest Community Centre hosted an under-strength Mallard FC and ended their two-match losing run by picking up a deserved victory.
Luke Fisher was the star of the show for the Forest as he scored a well taken hat-trick, with Jake Goldsworthy also on targer.
Miller Sports B 5 Trowbridge Rangers (Sunday) 0
Miller Sports B claimed a comprehensive 5-0 win over Trowbridge Rangers (Sunday).
The first half started brightly for Miller, with Harry Waylen causing problems throughout, and it was his corner that fell to James Webb, who thumped home to make it 1-0.
Miller continued to press and a Daniel Sibley free kick was headed home by Nathan Drew to double their advantage.
Daniel Sibley went one-on-one with the keeper and slotted the ball home to make it 3-0 and Miller kept pressing, with Waylen driving the ball into the back of the net.
With the game nearly up, Miller took a quick corner and Webb set up Waylen, who rounded off the rout.
