20th September 2014 - Chipping Sodbury too strong for Kingswood

Cheltenham Civil Service go 2 pts clear at the top after their convincing win at Berkeley Town. AEK Boco are in 2nd place 2pts behind after being held at home by Yate Town Reserves. Chipping Sodbury Town’s win at home to Kingswood moves them into 3rd place.

At the bottom Southmead CS Athletic have moved of the bottom of the table with their second win in 5 days, whilst Bishops Cleeve Reserves now sit at the bottom with Berkeley Town and Patchway Town just above.

Chipping Sodbury Town got back to league action after a two week lay off due to Cup commitments with a 2-0 win at home to local rivals Kingswood. For the first 38 minutes of this game both sides failed to break through their defences although the home side did force several corners one of which looked dangerous until the Kingswood keeper Chris Fox rose well to fist the ball away. Neither side had managed a shot on target until the 39th minute when Kingswood should have taken the lead as Paul Bleakens cross into the box found Tom Higgins with space to shoot but he hit his shot straight at home keeper George Hale. A couple of minutes later Sodbury’s Sam Jenkins let fly from the edge of the box but it went just wide. Right on half time Kingswood were caught out with a quickly taken free kick which found Danny Coombes on the right and from the edge of the box he sent over a looping shot that cleared keeper Fox and dropped under the bar at the far post. The reaction of the Sodbury players on taking the lead that it had been a lucky strike.

The second half went to the home side who created a number of chances to increase the lead with Shots from Danny Coombes and a couple from Justin Cattle bringing the best out of keeper Chris Fox. The visitors first real strike on goal came after 59 minutes a ball squared across the edge of the box for Simon Clark who struck the ball well but it went straight to George Hale. Sodbury got a second goal on 70 minutes from a Kingswood free kick that was struck well but rebounded back up field and the home side caught the visitors defence out and a cross into Mike England gave him the opportunity to stab the ball past Fox. Kingswood had another chance to pull a goal back on 73 minutes from a free kick on the edge of the box that was well struck by Simon Clark but George Hale dived full length to push the ball away for a corner. Ollie Clark then missed a great opportunity to make it 3-0 to the home side and then right at the end George Hale pulled off a great save to deny Gary Simmons a goal for Kingswood.

Southmead CS Athletic who have been on the bottom of the table all season have finally hauled themselves up the table with two straight wins in a week. Their first win came at Bishops Cleeve Reserves on Tuesday and they beat Patchway Town 2-1 today. All three gaols came late in the game with Southmead taking the lead on 70 minutes with a 35 yard free kick from Luke Bayford. A tap in 10 minutes later by Arron Pope gave the home side a 2-0 lead. Patchway hit back with a goal right on time scored by Mark Stoneham.

Henbury went 5-0 up against bottom Club Bishops Cleeve Reserves before two late goal pulled it back to 5-2. Henbury went ahead after 3 minutes when a shot from Adam Rosser was to hot to hold by Clark in the visitors goal and Aaron Anglin swept the ball home. Tom Palmer’s accurate pass to Anglin allowed the striker to net a second on 14 minutes. The third on 24 minutes was a solo effort from Tom Palmer who latched onto a long ball before driving the ball past Clark from the edge of the box. Danny Simpson netted number four after Clark failed to hold another powerful shot and Simpson was on hand to score. Adam Rosser put the home side 5-0 to the good with a great shot on 50 minutes. In the last 10 minutes of the game Cleeve hit back with two goals the first on 80 minutes from a free kick that the home keeper could only palm away and Mitch Bennett drove the ball home. The second on 85 minutes was a cross from Mat McGee headed home by James Pickup.
