CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION: Rangers love that winning feeling
10:49am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
WESTBURY Rangers are the outright leaders of the Chippenham & District Sunday League Premier Division.
A 6-2 win over Steeple Ashton Rangers at Meadow Lane saw them open up a three-point gap on both defending champions Biddestone Social and The Castle FC, the latter of which were in Sunday Cup action.
Adie Chantry gave Westbury the lead on 16 minutes before Shane Newman made it 2-0 in the 40th minute.
Although Marc Sheppard halved Ashton's arrears with his first of the game on 50 minutes, it was all one-way traffic after that.
Dan Cox scored in both the 65th and 72nd minute to make it 4-0 before Newman scored his second of the morning in the 77th minute.
Adam Bishop made up Rangers' half dozen when he rifled home from 25 yards five moments from time.
Ashton’s second came at the death when Sheppard grabbed another consolation goal.
AFC Melksham 2 Bug & Spider FC 1
AFC Melksham picked up their first points of the season thanks to a controversial 2-1 win over Bug & Spider FC at Christie Miller.
Kieron Gleed headed Bug & Spider ahead just before half-time.
AFC Melksham leveled through Jordan Kirk and when the Bug lost stand-in keeper Marcus Lovesey with an eye injury the game swung the way of Melksham who secured their win thanks to a 75th minute winner from Kirk.
Bug & Spider and most of the AFC Melksham side thought that the Bug should have been awarded a penalty after Alex Lewis was bundled over in the area but their appeals for a spot kick went unanswered.
FC Colerne 4 Biddestone Social 11
iddestone Social dedicated their resounding 11-4 win away at FC Colerne to Brain Strange, whose father had passed away earlier in the week.
Simon Williams put Colerne ahead only for Gary Banks to square things up.
A second from Williams handed the lead back to Colerne but after that it was all Biddestone as Beau Blackman netted a hat-trick whilst Ollie Webb and Aaron Tinson scored two each.
Leon Greenland scored from the penalty spot, Ryan Baggs and Martin Johnson’s long-range wonder-strike completed the rout.
Jake Jefferies and Nick Chandler added the others for Colerne.
Semington Rovers 1 Bradford Renegades 5
Bradford Renegades eased to a 5-1 victory away to Semington Rovers although things may have been different had Rovers not come up against Renegades' inspired keeper Darren Phoenix.
A strong drive from Renegades' Dan Fowler opened the scoring for the visitors before Sam Jordan scored from the penalty spot after Tom Rooney had been hauled down in the area.
Jordan then made it 3-0 before half-time, getting the slightest touch on Ashley Styles' cross.
Dan Price buried a header into the top corner for 4-0 before Chris Rogers pulled a goal back for Semington.
The game was starting to become scrappy and a late surge by Rooney saw him to pounce on Mark Robinson’s drive as he followed up to knock the ball in for 5-1.
