CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION ONE: Staverton suffer first defeat
10:09am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
SOMERFORD consolidated second place in the Division One table after ending the unbeaten run of fierce rivals Staverton FC.
Matt Spear, who has proved to be a shrewd signing for Somerford, gave his team the lead but they were pegged back by their guests, who restored parity thanks to a stunning 25-yard thunderbolt from Simon Parfitt.
Somerford managed to get themselves back in front before half time, with Matt Holdaway finding the net for 2-1.
After the break, Somerford withstood a period of sustained pressure from Staverton and while their defence were on top form, their strikers produced the goods at the other end of the park.
Victory was secured thanks to a second of the morning from Spear and first of the season from Jamie Holdaway.
Chippenham West End 0 Prestige Bodyworks 5
Chippenham West End started their game at home to Prestige Bodyworks with just ten players and not long into the first half, they were reduced to nine men when an injury saw them lose Mike Murden.
And had it not been for the bravery of their keeper Ciaron Lyons, who played in goal despite an injured ankle, their 5-0 defeat could have been even greater as the keeper made some great stops to keep the score down.
West End fell behind early in the game, with Mark Nolan tapping in from close range for 1-0.
Zac Klukowski held his nerve while going one-on-one with keeper Lyons to double his team's lead before the break with his first of the season.
Mike Few hit his first for West End whilst Jamie Treweke and Dave Nolan found the target to wrap up Prestige’s fourth win in five games.
Corsham CC Wildcats 6 North Star A 0
After picking up their first win over the season last weekend after their thumping 10-0 success over leaders Bromham (Sunday), Scott Fleming’s Corsham Wildcats were in the goals for a second week running as they defeated North Star A 6-0.
Adam Mitchell, who netted seven last weekend, picked up where he left off with the Wildcats' opener before Dan King made it 2-0.
A first goal of the season from player-manager Fleming made it 3-0, and a second from Mitchell killed off any chacnes of a fightback.
Matt Thomson chalked up his first of the season to claim his team's fifth and like last week, Joe King came off the bench to get his name on the scoresheet.
For Joe King who usually plays in goal, it was his third goal of the season in less than 90 minutes as an outfield player.
Kings Arms (All Cannings) 2 Bromham (Sunday) 6
After suffering a 10-0 mauling at the hands of Corsham CC Wildcats last weekend, Danny Powell’s table topping Bromham (Sunday) returned to winning ways with an emphatic 6-2 victory away at Kings Arms (All Cannings).
A first goal for the club from Ricky Gullis gave Bromham the lead, which they were able to double before half-time when Freddie Paget scored his first of the morning.
Bromham added a third from Ali Bradley, Rob Sandiford got his name on the score sheet and two more Paget goals saw him complete his hat-trick before Kings Arms replied late on.
imon Drewitt from the penalty spot and Jacob Rogers were on target for Jim Wilson’s side.
