22nd April 2017 - Bristol Telephones crowned champions

With Bristol Telephones winning the title in mid-week at Little Stoke their last home fixture of the season was against Broadwell Amateurs who had been successful on their previous visit to the ground in the Les James League Cup. The game got off to a brilliant start for the visitors when a long ball found Kristian Burnard to run clear and chip the ball over Will Osborne after just 50 seconds. The home side grafted their way back into the game and it was a long ball up to Lee Pitman who also chipped the ball over the Broadwell keeper Jamie Merry to level the score after 31 minutes. Just a minute before the break the home side grabbed the lead after a ball in from the right just bobbled backwards and forwards before Dhani Golding turned it into the visitors net.

On the restart the home side pushed hard for a third goal and Martin Blacker was only just over from the edge of the box. A few minutes later Blacker blasted a great shot from 25 yards that whistled past the post. Broadwell never really troubled the home side in the second period but were always looking for that second goal. Near the end a great cross from Mike Alvis was met at the far post by Dhani Golding but he failed to direct his header on target.

At the end of the game the players were presented with their trophies and the Cup by the leagues Main Sponsors - Managing Director Cliff Orchard.

A win at Hardwicke in the week meant that Frampton United had to travel to Rockleaze Rangers knowing only a win would guarantee the Runners-up spot. They managed to grab the only goal of the game in the 34th minute to secure the Runners-up position. An early chance fell to Frampton’s Kris Bulley but Sam Burgess saved with his legs. Then in the 34th minute a long cross to the far post was met by Stuart Maule who headed back across goal and into the far corner. Midway through the second half the Frampton custodian James Marklove pulled of a great save to deny Kye Simpson then 10 minutes later Marklove pulled off another good save to deny Nick Jones. Right on time Frampton almost made it 2-0 but Jonathan Lewis’s chip struck the crossbar. Frampton were presented with their Runners-up Trophies after the game.

A 4-0 win at Bishops Cleeve Reserves by Southmead CS Athletic has closed the gap to just 1 point at the bottom. If they should win their last fixture home to Gala Wilton they will avoid finishing bottom. Southmead galloped into a 2-0 lead within the first 10 minutes with both goals being scored by Rob Sivers from long balls over the defence and one-on- one situation with the Cleeve keeper. The visitors went 3-0 up early in the second half when Ashley Harwood headed home from a corner. The Sivers completed his hat-trick with another long ball over the Cleeve defence to run through and score.

Thornbury Town who have completed their fixtures will have to settle for fourth position in the table exactly the same spot they finished last season. They came away from Henbury with a 2-1 win. They opened the scoring on 8 minutes from a corner from the right that was headed home by Joe Guest. The only real chance created by the home side came in the 12th minute a 20 yard free kick that was well saved by the Thornbury keeper. Five minutes before the break Henbury were reduced to 10 men when Reece Purnell received a red card. Thornbury went 2-0 up on 58 minutes from the penalty spot put away by Toby Bennett. The home side although a player short did manage to find the back of the Thornbury net in the 81st minute a Jack Mills free kick from the edge of the box finding the bottom corner.

Kingswood won their home fixture with Gala Wilton 2-0 with a goal in each half by David Parslow. His first on 40 minutes came from a good run down the flank by Jamie Evans a cross into Ryan Mudd and then Mudd setting up Parslow to side foot home. The second came in the last minute of the game when Parslow lobbed the visitor’s keeper from the edge of the box. Gala could hardly muster a shot at the target all game.

Little Stoke and AEK Boco finished all square with a 2-2 draw. A Zac Cosgrove cross to Kevin Williams saw Boco keeper Joe Pople pull off a good save on 10 minutes, then Danny Cochram missed a good chance a couple of minutes later after Owen Greening had done all the work. Stoke went ahead on 20 minutes from a Williams corner headed in by Sasha Tong. Liam Powell the cleared an effort from Tong off the line. In the 30th minute Boco drew level from a Joe Reeves free kick that fell to Liam Crewe on the edge of the box to blast his shot home. Stoke keeper Turner pumped a long ball up field to Simon Knight but Pople was there to prevent the ball going in. In the 55th minute Boco had a great chance to take the lead from a Liam Crewe corner but Jack Withey headed over the bar. The visitors went into the lead on 65 minutes from another Liam Crewe corner this time headed home by Darren Werrett. Stoke levelled the score on 70 minutes from a long ball up field by Chris Church and Russ Church neatly chipped the ball over Pople.
