13th December 2014 - Sklenar sends Civil Service clear

Cheltenham Civil Service are now 9 points clear of their nearest rivals Chipping Sodbury Town and Kings Stanley following their win at home to Thornbury Town.

Bishops Cleeve Reserves move out of the bottom two with a home win over Ellwood and Patchway Town take their place.

Cheltenham Civil Service are going to be hard to catch if they continue with the form shown so far this season. They made sure of the 3 points today with a superb performance in the first 45 minutes against Thornbury Town at Tewksbury Road. Nobody seems to be able to prevent leading Goalscorer Jack Sklenar from finding the back of their net. Another superb hat-trick in today’s game brings his tally to 30 for the season and we are just about half way through. Sklenar opened the scoring on 6 minutes after Thornbury failed to clear and he hammered the ball past Alex Lippiatt. The home side may well have been 2-0 up on 14 minutes when Paul Holmes was clear on goal but hit his shot straight to Lippiatt. At the other end home keeper Tim Griffiths had to push Luke Franklins shot away for a corner on 23 minutes. 2 minutes later Cheltenham were awarded a penalty Jack Sklenar hit his shot hard to the right of Lippiatt who went the right way and got his finger tips to the ball but it was too powerful. Thornbury hit back and pulled a goal back on 30 minutes with a powerful drive from Luke Franklin that was only parried away by the home keeper Tim Griffiths as it went straight to Craig Lancastle who drove the ball home. The home side went 3-1 up on 35 minutes from a break down the left by Sklenar and his low cross to the far post was met by Stuart Midwinter. Sklenar completed his hattrick in the 43rd minute when the Thornbury defence were opened up and he majestically ran clear to fire past Lippiatt.

The second half went flat for the home side and the visitor’s enjoyed much more of the possession and they should have pulled a goal back on 53 minutes but Craig Lancastle fired wide of the target from 14 yards. Thornbruy’s second was a very good move down the right flank to the edge of the box where the ball was squared back where Toby Bennett was waiting to hit a superb drive past Griffiths. There were a couple of close encounters for the visitors but the home defence held firm.

Bishops Cleeve Resrves did themselves some good with a cracking 4-0 home victory over Ellwood who by all accounts looked a little out of sorts on the day. This game also produced a hattrick from Cleeves Ashley Hill who found the back of the net 3 times in the first 28 minutes. His opening goal on 15 minutes came from a cross to the far post from Giles Elliott. His second on 20 minutes was a superb Chip from the edge of the box. He turned his third in from close range after the ball ran loose in the box. With the visitors offering very little the home side got a forth on 75 minutes when Giles Elliot squeezed the ball home from a narrow angle.

AEK Boco struck back with a vengeance after last weeks defeat at home with a 6-2 win at Henbury. The opening goal on 10 minutes went the visitors when home keeper Jamie Framiloe punched the ball into his own net from a corner. Henbury levelled it up on 15 minutes this time they had a little fortune as Kane Simpsons shot also took a deflection on its way in. Boco then retook the lead when they were awarded a penalty in the 33rd minute after a Dale Simpson foul in the box. Liam Crewe took the kick which was brilliantly saved by Framiloe but Crewe followed up from the rebound to drive the ball home. 2 minutes later Boco were 3-0 up from a cross come shot from Darren Werrett that deceived everyone and dropped into the net. Werrett netted a second from just inside the box on 38 minutes to give the visitors a comfortable 4-1 lead at the break. In the 55th minute Henbury made it 4-2 and it came from an Aaron Rosser free kick that looked to be missing the target but was deflected of the boot of a Boco defender past his own keeper. Boco wrapped the points up in the last 6 minutes with two further strikes. The first on 84 minutes was a shot from Jack Withy from outside the box and a second on 86 minutes was shot from James Laver.

Gala Wilton and Chipping Sodbury Town had to settle for a point each. But Sodbury could well have been 1-0 up on 5 minutes but for a superb overhead clearance off the line by Ben Jones. The home side had a couple of chances to take the lead before Justin Cattle put Sodbury ahead in the 38th minute from a long free kick knocked into the box. A scrambled goal from Myron Turner in the 47th minute put the scores level. Ruben Draper then restored the lead for the visitor’s midway through the second half. Mike Perris the player manager for Gala then brought himself on and managed to salvage a point for the home side in the 88th minute.

Yate Town Reserves are playing much better these days and the results are beginning to come. The raced into a 2-0 lead in the first 16 minutes of this home game with Kingswood. The first on 12 minutes was a superb 25 yard shot by Lewis Fogg that struck the post and finished up in the roof of the net. A header from Mike Connor on 16 minutes gave them a 2-0 cushion. Kingswood had the chance to reduce the arrear4s on 60 minutes from the penalty spot but Simon Clarke’s penalty struck the upright. Kingswood made it 2-1 on 75 minutes with a shot into the bottom corner by Gary Simmons. Yate had to stand some extra pressure for the last 15 minutes but held on for the win.

Kings Stanley won this game by the odd goal in five after taking the lead twice and were pegged back on both occasions. This defeat for Bristol Telephones is the third in a row. Stanley got off to a great start with a goal on 2 minutes. Ben Newman’s cross was turned in by Danny Chandler. This was the start of another hattrick for the afternoon. On 20 minutes a lo0ng ball into the box found Dhani Golding to make the score 1-1. Chandler fired the home side back into the lead on 23 minutes with a superb 20 yard free kick into the top corner. Right on half time Telephone drew level again with a second from Dhani Golding. The visitors almost took the lead in the 80th minute but for a tremendous save by Ashley Gale. Stanley stole the show right on time as Chandler scored for a third time with a shot that went in off the post.

A solitary goal in the 80th minute from Rockleaze Rangers Ed Freeman was enough to seal the three points at Hanham Athletic.

Patchway Town fall to yet another home defeat and slipped to second from bottom in the table. The visitors today Frampton United took the lead on 32 minutes with a far post knock in by Steve Jackson. The visitors went 2-0 up after 52 minutes when a mistake by Matt Webb losing the ball to Steve Jackson who rounded the keeper to score. The home side did eventually get on the score sheet in the 80th minute with a goal from Brandon Benjamin after returning to action after a long lay off due to a broken leg.

Southmead CS Athletic and Berkley Town were unable to break the deadlock and the game finished 0-0. Luke Coghlan hit the cross bar in the first half for Southmead. Berkeley keeper Miles Palmer also brought off to great saves to keep his side in the game early in the second half. Berkeley Town hit the post but both teams do have a problem scoring goals this season.
