25th April 2015 - Cheltenham Civil Service shut out Sodbury, as AEK Boco finish Runners up

Cheltenham Civil Service dented Chipping Sodbury Town’s hopes of finishing with a win in their last game of the season. It could well be Sodbury’s last game in the Marcliff Gloucestershire County Football League as they have finished third in the table and have acquired the necessary Ground Grading Criteria to play at Step 6 next season. Sodbury could well have got something from this game but the difference was in the finishing and the excellent defending by the Champions.

The visitor’s got off to a good start and John Evans was prevented from putting them ahead by the legs of keeper George Hale after 8 minutes. On 15 minutes the home side had their first chance to open the scoring as an in-swinging corner from the left was bundled off the line by Cameron Smith. Jack Sklenar got the ball into the Sodbury net after a good build up but it was ruled out for offside. In the 30th minute home keeper George Hale read Cameron Smiths free kick well and made the save look easy. On 34 minutes Justin Cattle broke through the Cheltenham defence and with a clear shot on goal looked odds on to score but keeper Tim Griffiths had other ideas as the striker shot he smothered the ball but it escaped back to Cattle whose second shot was pushed away by Griffiths for a corner. A rasping shot from James Mackie a couple of minutes later just cleared the visitors bar. Sodbury had a free kick on the left near the goal line that was pumped into the box and looked all the way a goal until Chris Pates got back to clear the ball off the line. 2 minutes before the break Cheltenham stole the lead. John Evans picked up the ball in midfield before threading it through for Jack Sklenar to run clear - round Hale and slide the ball into an empty net.

Sodbury were caught cold 2 minutes into the second half when Stuart Midwinter was put clear to hammer the ball past Hale for a 2-0 lead. Sklenar went very close to making it 3-0 in the 48th minute his shot was just wide of the post. John Evans should have made it three in the 51st minute when Hale had ventured out to edge of the box to try and clear the ball as it looping up for Evans to head at an empty goal but he only succeeded in putting it wide. Chances were not coming for the home side but on 72 minutes Danny Coombes had a great chance to pull a goal back for the home side but fired his shot straight at Griffiths. Good luck to Chipping Sodbury Town next season in their new venture at a higher level.

With still one fixture to play AEK Boco secured the runners-up spot with a 3-2 victory at Bishops Cleeve Reserves. James Laver gave Boco the lead on 10 minutes and Liam Powell made that 2-0 on 20 minutes with one of his special free kicks. Cleeves James Pickup reduced the arrears in the 25th minute from the penalty spot and midway through the second half Adam Gill levelled the score with a header at the far post. Boco stole the three points right on 90 minutes with a goal from Liam Crewe.

Thornbury Town completed their league program with a comfortable 4-1 win over Gala Wilton at the Mundy Playing Fields. Town opened the scoring after 38 seconds when Dan Rees was put clear on the right then pulled the ball back for Rob Wilks to score. In the 12th minute Gala gave the Thorns an opportunity that was grateful accepted when a back pass to the keeper was under hit Rob Wilks chased the ball down putting the keeper under pressure on the edge of the box, his clearance went straight to Dan Rees who from 35 yards drove the ball into the Gala net. In the 32nd minute Pete Fowler set up Dan Rees to break clear and pick his spot to give thorns a 3-0 lead at the break. Gala were more determined at the start of the second half and a great 30 yard shot from Sam Hicks saw the Thorns keeper bring off a good save. The home side increased their lead in the 77th minute when substitute Josh Pirie latched onto another poor pass back and rounded the keeper before tapping the ball into the net. In the 88th minute Gala got a consolation goal and a fine effort it was as Mike Pilling took the ball with his back to goal before turning and striking his shot past keeper James Lewis. This win for Town has lifted them into fourth place in the table.

Henbury hit Kings Stanley for six and that means Stanley will now finish 5th in the table. A hattrick for Jack Mills and a brace from Aaron Anglin accounted for five of the goals with the other netted by Reece Purnell. Jack Mills was responsible for Henbury’s first three goals the first after 26 minutes when he cut in from the right to drive the ball home. In the 40th minute Kane Simpson was brought down in the box by the visitor’s keeper and Mills despatched the penalty. In the 50th minute Mills completed his hattrick firing the ball home from a rebound after Kane Simpson‘s shot came back off the post. Aaron Anglin got the first of his two goals on 60 minutes this time it was Reece Purnell’s shot coming back off the post for Anglin to steer home. Anglin’s second goal on 75 minutes was an individual effort from the striker drifting past a couple of defenders before driving the ball into the net. Kings Stanley got a consolation goal on 80 minutes Ryan Stevenson heading home a free kick sent over by Sam Prior. The final goal was a neat bit of skill from Reece Purnell who squeezed the ball home between the keeper and the near post from a very acute angle.
