28th February 2015 - Bristol Telephones ease to victory over Hanham

Chipping Sodbury hang on to top spot with a draw at home to Kings Stanley, whist Cheltenham Civil Service back in league action this week take the three points at Bishops Cleeve Reserves to move into second place.

No change at the bottom of the table as all three teams lost.

Bristol Telephones who have scored 96 goals this season beat local rivals Hanham Athletic 3-0 but it should have been a much bigger score-line if the home side had converted numerous chances throughout the game. Phones Luke Palmer shot over the bar after surging into the box on 5 minutes. A minute later Hanham’s Mark Johns got his shot on target but it went straight to Will Osborne in the home goal. After 11 minutes phones were in front the ball was hit into the box Dhani Golding pushed it forward for Aaron Mcquaid to draw the keeper and slide the ball home. Hanham’s Shaun Morris got his 30 yard drive on target but it was not good enough to beat Osborne. In the 18th minute Fletcher just managed to push Mcquaid’s shot wide of the post. Then Dhani Goldings shot was deflected of a Hanham defender onto the bar. The best effort from the visitor’s came in the 23rd minute a shot from Shaun Morris that had Osborne diving to his right to stop the shot going in and then had to be quick to gather the loose ball. The visitors defence were leading a charmed life as Fletcher again pushed a Dhani Golding header over the bar. In the 38th minute Martin Blacker had a great chanced to make it 2-0 but fired his shot over the bar from 12 yards.

The second half continued in the same vein with Luke Palmer’s shot went just over the bar in the first minute. Telephones went 2-0 up on 51 minutes when the visitors were caught out just inside their own half and Dhani Golding covering 40 yards before rounding Fletcher to score. Fletcher had to be at his best when he turned away a 30 yard shot from Jack Cox. Hanham barely threatened the home goal and a rare shot from Morris in the 60th minute told the story. Golding should have made it 3-0 on 54 minutes when Kyran Hunt broke clear down the left squared the ball to Golding but the striker was to casual and pulled his shot wide. In the 73rd minute a long ball from keeper Osborne was misjudged by the Hanham defence and Aaron McQuaid ran clear to steal the ball away from Fletcher and slide it into an empty net. The home side just kept pressing but they were unable to add to their tally. An unsavoury incident a few minutes from the end saw both sides finish with ten men.

Cheltenham Civil Service gained a 2-0 victory at local rivals Bishops Cleeve Reserves gaining revenge for their only defeat of the season so far. A cross come shot from the edge of the box by John Evans put the visitors ahead after 20 minutes. A second in the 70th minute from Paul Holmes made sure of the three points.

AEK Boco’s opener came in the 20 minute with good work from midfield and Jordan Scott setting up Ben Menear for a well worked goal. A second for the home side on 33 minute with a superbly placed 25 yard free kick curled in by Liam Powell. Ellwood’s chances were rare and in the 67 minute they gave away a penalty which was coolly netted by Liam Powell for his second of the game. The visitors hit back to score a consolation goal in the 75th minute a superb solo strike by Daryl Addis a left footed shot that curled into the net.

Henbury went behind to a Simon Clark penalty after 15 minutes at home to Kingswood, but hit back with two second half goals to win the game. Kane Simpson bent his shot around the keeper in the 55th minute to level and a cross field ball found Shaun Heal to set up Jack Mills to score the winner late on.

Thornbury Town lacked the punch of the last few weeks and could only manage a draw at home to Southmead CS Athletic who gave the home side plenty to think about on the day. A goalless first 45 minutes was broken very early in the second half by the visitors with a cross into the box that found Danny Tomlin to drive the ball into the far corner. Town’s Luke Franklins 30 yard shot struck the top of the cross bar on 55 minutes and Darren Coghlan had a great chance to put Southmead two up in the 65th minute. Town got the equaliser on 75 minutes a corner that was headed out and fell to Franklin whose shot was blocked but Mark Viner stabbed the ball home from the rebound. Southmead found themselves under the cosh for the last 10 minutes when they lost Ben Roe after picking up a second yellow card.

Gala Wilton took the three points at home to Yate Town Reserves but they had to wait until the last 15 minutes to score the two goals that won them the game. A through ball to Lee Allen gave him the chance to put the home side one up but the keeper saved his shot and the rebound fell kindly for Ben Jones to drive the ball home. In the 80th minute it was Allen involved again as he sped towards goal only to be upended in the box for a penalty. Allen took the kick and made no mistake.

Berkeley Town are in real trouble after getting hammered 6-1 at home to local rivals Frampton United. The home side got off to a great start taking the lead on 22 minutes when Ben Gillison turned in a long free kick. Within a minute Frampton levelled with a goal from Chris Fower. A Kris Bulley shot from the edge of the box put the visitors 2-1 up after 39 minutes and a minute later the visitors were 3-1 up when Richard Reece put the ball into his own net. Just before the break Frampton increased their lead to 4-1 when Chris Fower netted from the penalty spot. Two further goals from Radford Hogben in the 55th and 79th minute put the final nail in the coffin for the home side.

Patchway Town’s were unable to repeat their win at Kings Stanley last week after going down 4-2 at home to Rockleaze Rangers. Rangers got off to a great start on 20 minutes when Alex Fox’s 25 yard unstoppable shot fizzed past the home keeper, but within 2 minutes Town were level with a very special 30 yard screamer from Brandon Benjamin. A James Griffiths header put the visitors back in front before Town levelled again when Tallen Smith rose to head home a Tom Stewart cross. A missed penalty by Alex Graham on 62 minutes cost the home side dearly as 8 minutes later Griffiths netted his second to put Ranger in the lead. The home side were caught out again in time added when Tobias Hart scored a forth for Rangers.

Chipping Sodbury hang on to top spot after they were held to a 0-0 score-line at home to third in the table Kings Stanley. Stanley defended very well and soaked up anything that came at them. According to the report neither side deserved to win this game
