22nd November 2014 - Patchway Town make Kingswood pay the penalty

Four of the nine scheduled fixtures had to be postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

Cheltenham Civil Service march on and opened up a 7 point gap at the top after their win at home to Kings Stanley. Chipping Sodbury moved into second spot after shocking high scoring Bristol Telephones.

It was an all action packed game at Scott Park where Patchway Town took on Kingswood and recorded their third win of the season. This game had 7 goals – two players had to leave the field through injury – 3 penalties and a sending off. It was equal shares until the 14th minute when Patchway struck the up right and a further 12 minutes before the deadlock was broken. A break from Kingswood down the right and a good cross squared to Simon Clarke on the edge of the box who took his time and fired the ball across the Patchway keeper Lloyd Kelsell into the far corner. There was a long break for an injury to the Kingswood keeper Chris Fox and Patchway forward Craig Horseman with both players having to leave the field. Ben Hemmings took the keepers jersey for the visitors. Patchway first corner 1n the 33rd minute was headed just wide of the post. 2 minutes later Kingswood’s Ben vale was dismissed for 2 bookable offences. The home side levelled the score on 38 minutes with a superb goal from Russ Church as he cut into the edge of the box from the right and sent a very powerful shot past Hemmings into the far corner. Kingswood almost regained the lead on 44 minutes but Gary Simmons shot was deflected over the bar. Kingswood did snatch the lead in the time added for the earlier injury. A long ball was lifted into the centre of the box Keeper Kelsell decided to come out to collect but he was beaten by the sharpness of Gary Simmons who lifted the ball over his head into an empty net. The visitors although down to 10 men went into the break with a 2-1 lead.

That lead did not last long as the home side made it 2-2 in the very first minute of the second half from a Charlie Collins shot that took a wicked deflection before finishing up in the back of the visitors net. In the 49th minute Frazer Robertson almost gave the home side the lead with a thunderous shot that struck the underside of the crossbar and rebounded into play. A minute later Patchway had a golden opportunity to take the lead when Matt Davies was brought down in the box the referee pointing straight to the spot. There seemed confusion who would take the penalty before Frazer Robertson stepped forward and drove his shot against the upright. Fortune was on the side of Patchway as 4 minutes later a handball incident was spotted by the referee in the Kingswood box and a second penalty was awarded. This time Matt Davies elected to take the kick and gave Hemmings no chance to save. Davies’s second on 63 minutes was a piece of individual skill as the ball was played into him on the edge of the box he shimmed past two defenders before sliding the ball across Hemmings into the far corner. Kingswood pulled it back to 4-3 on 71 minutes when Gary Simmons went down in the box and the referee gave the penalty. Simon Clarke sent the ball home from the spot. Matt Davies really should have made it a hattrick on 85 minutes as the ball was squared across the box and with a free shot on goal he sent it past the outside of the post.

Bishops Cleeve Reserves remain second from bottom after taking a 5-1 battering from Thornbury Town. Cleeve should have been two up in the first few minutes but squandered the chances. Then in the 7th minute Rob Wilks gave Thornbury the lead. A disputed penalty netted by Craig Lancastle in the 21st minute put the visitors two up. Thornbury were on a high and made it 3-0 on 36 minutes with a goal from Scott McCleod. A minute before the break Town found themselves with a 4-0 lead after Josh Pirie scored. A 70th minute penalty converted by James Pickup made it 4-1 but 5 minutes later Craig Lancastle netted his second of the afternoon for a final score of 5-1 to the visitors.

Chipping Sodbury Town gave Bristol Telephones a shock when they inflicted a 5-2 reverse. Telephones: noted for their free scoring were on the receiving end this time. It was the home side who got off the mark first after 12 minutes a Dhani Golding cross was fired home by Adam Gregory. In the 18th minute Gregory failed to clear the ball from the edge of the box and Luke Meacham moved into the box and slotted the ball home. Telephones thought they had scored a second on 41 minutes but it was ruled out for a push on the keeper. They were also disappointed in the 54th minute when they appealed for handball in the box but it was waved away. Sodbury went ahead in the 61st minute from a corner from the left misjudged by the home keeper and Jack Smyth was there to knock the ball in. 4 minutes later Smyth was on hand to head home his second and put the visitors 3-1 up. A Justin Cattle shot from the edge of the box gave the visitors a 4-1 lead in the 76th minute. The home side hit back and scored a second on 80 minutes a great effort from Jack Fillingham a high volley from inside the 6 yard box. Sodbury made it five on 90 minutes with a second from Luke Meacham his shot skidding of the head of Martin Blacker on its way into the net.

Cheltenham Civil Service march on at the top with a 2-0 victory over challengers Kings Stanley. This was a very keenly contested game with no quarter shown by either side. Stanley had several half chances that they failed to take. Home sides Stuart Midwinter struck the post on two occasions during the game. The home side eventually ran out 2-0 winners but had to wait until the last 7 minutes of the game before they scored the opening goal. It came from a goalmouth scramble after the first shot was cleared off the line Chris Pates stabbed the ball through a crowed of players for the lead. Stuart Midwinter’s goal on 90 minutes was a long through ball which he latched onto before rounding the keeper and sending the ball home.

Gala Wilton are disappointed that they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Hanham Athletic after taking the lead in the 14th minute when Sean Bennett flicked the ball out to Liam Halliday to cross for Myron Turner to lash home. The home side lost Greg Artus in the 35th minute when he was instantly dismissed for a high footed challenge on an opponent. Hanham grabbed a point on 85 minutes when Ben Francis scrambled the ball over the line.
