21st November 2015 - Defences on top for Civil Service and Telephones

On a very cold day our long trip to Cheltenham Civil Service could have ended a little better after both teams failed to find the back of the net throughout the ninety minutes. There were chances created by both teams throughout the game with Bristol Telephones shading the home side in that department. Martin Blacker had a good chance for the visitors on 5 minutes but drove his shot straight at keeper Steve Benbow. A thirty yard free kick from Phones Dhani Golding had Benbow at full stretch to save. A few minutes later a Golding shot took a deflection and was cleared off the line. Cheltenham’s first real effort on goal came from Nathan Church after 34 minutes a great shot that was neatly taken by the visitors keeper Will Osborne. The best chance of the half fell to Phones in the 41st minute from a cross to the far post by Dhani Golding that found Ryan Webber completely unmarked but he shot wide when it looked easier to score.

5 minutes into the second half Benbow saved really well to deny Webber and then Cheltenham had to clear off the line from another attack from Phones. The best chance for the home side fell to Joe Richards who broke clear on goal but failed to get the ball past Osborne.

Ellwood showed visitors Hanham Athletic no mercy hammering home five with out reply. Mike Nelson put Ellwood ahead on 20 minutes with a 20 yard shot into the bottom corner and 5 minutes later Darryl Addis headed a second from a corner. Lee Scotford made it three on 55 minutes with a simple tap in and on the hour Matt Jackson netted number four from the penalty spot. A fifth goal on 89 minutes another penalty for a foul on Jackson was put away by Gary Wildin.

Hardwicke hammered Southmead CS Athletic at Pen Park by seven goals to one with Steve Bick the flavour of the day for the visitors netting four of the goals. The visitor raced into a 4-1 half time lead with a hattrick from Bick and a further gaol from Paul Carter. Kye Perks pulling one back for the home side. Bick then made it 5-1 early in the second half before two late goals from Tobie Webb gave Hardwicke a most impressive win.

Yate Town Reserves held high flying Broadwell Amateurs to a 2-2 draw but should have taken all three points but missed a penalty near the end. Yate took the lead on 13 minutes when Mike Alvis ran on to a superb through ball to drive the ball into the net. A 15 yard volley from Cain Penkethman midway through the first half made it 1-1 A good move between Luke Withy and Jamal Fisher and a low cross into the box that found Henry Jones to side foot home to put Yate back in front. Broadwell hit back and levelled on 65 minutes from a header by Oliver Fitt. The late drama was the penalty very near the end that was taken by Mike Alvis but he hit the ball straight into the arms of the Broadwell keeper.

AEK Boco are moving away at the top and are now 8 points clear of Patchway Town in second place. It took Boco 44 minutes to take the lead a low cross into the box that was put away by Liam Powell. Cleeve who are vastly improved this season hit back on the hour mark when James Pickup swept home Rob Reid’s cross. Boco got the winner seven minutes from the end with a strike from Jordan Scott.

Patchway Town move into second place after their 2-0 win at home to Kingswood. It took Patchway until the 70th minute to take the lead and that was a dreadful mistake by Kingswood defender Ben Vale who handled the ball on the line and immediately got his marching orders. Blaine Mitchell dispatched the following penalty for the lead. From this point onwards Kingswood were up against it and with just five minutes left the home side got a second when Luke Flicker rounded the keeper to drive the ball into an empty net.

A disappointing result for Thornbury Town going down 2-1 at home to Gala Wilton who from the report did deserve to win the game in the end. Town gifted Gala the opening goal on 14 minutes when a simple looking cross was dropped by home keeper Alex Lippiatt and it dropped to the feet of Mark Mason who had a simple task of knocking the ball into the net. Thornbury gathered themselves from that early shock and levelled the score on 35 minutes when centre back Joe Guest picked the ball up just inside hiss own half surged forward and unleashed a low shot that beat the visitor keeper. The game looked to be heading for draw until the 75th minute when Gala were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box which was very firmly struck by Adam Hemming the shot penetrating the wall and flying into the bottom corner.

Henbury got back to winning ways with 2-1 win over local rivals Rockleaze Rangers. It was the visitors who went into the lead on 15 minutes with a goal from Caelen Simpson. Henbury did have chances but both Aaron Anglin and Rob Wilks failed to take their opportunities. Henbury drew level on 63 minutes when Scott Thomas headed home from a Jack Mills cross. Just two minute later the home side were in front after Alex Monks put Rob Wilks clear to slot the ball home.
