23rd August 2014 - Les James League Cup - sponsored by Braley Business Systems

A rest from the league programme this week instead we saw the Les James Cup Competition get under way with the first round being completed.

Yate Town Reserves paid their second visit to Kingswood, after playing them in a league match last week the draw pitted them against the same opponents. The result last week was again repeated this week - with a two – nil score-line to home side. It could have been so different for the visitors if they had only taken their chances. Yate might have well been three goals up in the first eighteen minutes. They had a shot cleared off the line on six minutes and ten minutes later a twenty five yard drive from Luke Burman saw home keeper Chris Fox scrambling across goal and must have felt relieved when the ball went just the wrong side of the post. A great shot across goal from Liam Pullen on eighteen minutes would possible have beaten Fox but again it went just wide of the upright. In the twenty third minute Anton Dowe had a good chance to put the visitors ahead but he also pulled his shot wide. The visitors paid dearly for those missed chances and from the ensuing goal kick the long ball found its way into the Yate box and was knocked home by Paul Bleaken. A long ball from Yate’s Luke Burman found Anton Dowe who broke into the Kingswood box but before he could get his shot away he was well tackled by Frank Hitchings. The last real chance of the half fell to Yate in the thirty eighth minute a good effort from Joe Guest that was well saved by Fox.

The visitors were very unlucky in the fifty eighth minute when a shot from the edge of the box by Joe Guest struck the cross bar and was cleared. Another chance fell to the visitors on seventy seven minutes from a break down the left and the ball crossed to the edge of the box for Anton Dowe, but the striker again shot wide. The home side had that little bit more when it came to finishing and scored a second goal on eighty seventh minutes from a ball knocked into Simon Clarke who swivelled in the box and fired a shot across the Yate keeper Kieran Provis into the far corner.

Last years beaten finalists Rockleaze Rangers have been knocked out at the first attempt of this seasons competition going down heavily five – one at Bristol Telephones. Only fourteen spectators were present to see the home side take a five –nil lead in the first forty five minutes, with a hattrick from Luke Palmer and a brace from Dhani Golding. The first two goals were scored by Golding picking up rebounds from the keepers attempt to clear from Jack Fillingham shots on target. The opener came on eight minutes followed by the second on twenty five minutes. Luke Palmer got the first of his three on twenty eight minutes after being set up by Dhani Golding. The second two minutes later came direct from a free kick that gave the keeper no chance. Palmer rounded the scoring off for the home side when he chipped the keeper on forty minutes. Rockleaze did get a consolation in the second half when the home defence were all appealing for the offside that never came and Ed Freeman ran through to score.

Cheltenham Civil Service progress to the next round after winning four – three on penalties after drawing one – one at Patchway Town after ninety minutes. Leading goalscorer Jack Sklenar put the visitors ahead on fifteen minutes after being put clear on goal and Simon Knight levelled on forty eight minutes.

Henbury win their second game on the trot and progress to the second round. Adam Rosser gave the home side the lead with a sweet twenty five yard shot that whistled into the visitors net after fifteen minutes. Hanham Athletic netted an equalising goal in the fifty third minute with a special from Dan Turner who cut inside from the wing to unleash a shot across the home keeper and just inside the far post. Henbury retook the lead two minutes later from a free kick that was hit into the box by Adam Rosser and neatly flicked home by Aaron Anglin. Henbury let the visitors back in the game in the fifty eighth minute giving away a penalty that George Cryer netted to level the score. The winner for Henbury in the eighty first minute also came from the spot after Aaron Anglin had been brought down and Dale Simpson making no mistake with his kick.

Ellwood are through to the next round after beating Bishops Cleeve Reserves at Kayte Lane by four goals to nil. Darryl Addis netted a hat-trick with brother Julian scoring the other. The visitors went into the break with a two – nil lead after Darryl Addis scored two quick goals on forty two and forty five minutes. Julian made it three on sixty minutes and Darryl completed the scoring on sixty two minutes.

Chipping Sodbury Town who had a hundred percent record up until today - are out of this year’s competition after going down one – nil to Thornbury Town. A very even first forty five minutes with very little happening was carried on until the sixty ninth minute when the deadlock was broken by Thornbury’s Josh Pirie.

AEK Boco must be kicking themselves for losing this game after having a fair share of the play and taking the lead on twenty one minutes. Jack Green threw the ball into Jordan Scott who crossed into the box for Sam Kitson to score. The home keeper did keep them in the game just before the break with two great saves from Stanley’s Josh Wilson. Stanley levelled the score on seventy minutes when Danny Chandler latched on to a long ball. Boco hit the crossbar on eighty one minutes, but Stanley stole the game in time added when a mistake in the home defence allowed Chandler to round the keeper for the winner.

Southmead CS Athletic are really struggling at present and suffered another home defeat going down six – nil to Gala Wilton. Liam Dyer got the first on twelve minutes followed by a brace from Dion Lee on twenty one and thirty eight minutes. Second half the visitors netted three more through Dave Wilkinson on fifty three minutes, Myron Turner on seventy five minutes and the final goal from Sam Hicks in time added at the end of ninety minutes.
