18th April 2015 - Cheltenham Civil Service ease to title

Cheltenham Civil Service are the new Marcliff Gloucestershire County Football League Champions after they thumped a very poor Southmead CS Athletic side 13-0.

The writing was on the wall right from the kick-off as Jack Sklenar broke down the left and fired a cracking left foot drive from a very tight angle past the visitor’s keeper Danny Cooke. Within a minute the home side went 2-0 up when Stuart Midwinter broke clear down the right before hammering the ball into the far corner from the edge of the box. Midwinter made it 3-0 on 14 minutes when he neatly skipped past his marker to drive the ball home. It was 4-0 after 22 minutes this time Sklenar forged down the left squared the ball across goal where Stuart Mitchinson was waiting to pounce. Southmead did not have any answer to the constant flow of attacks by the league leaders as Sklenar rounded the keeper to slide the ball into an empty net for number five after 35 minutes.

Worse was to come in the second half as the home side completely dominated the game and were practically parked in the Southmead half. A minute into the second half Stuart Mitchinson netted his second with a clear shot on goal from around 12 yards. Cameron Smith got in on the act in the 55th minute hammering the ball into the net from just inside the box. Stuart Midwinter was put clear on goal in the 58th minute to complete his hattick. Just a minute later Substitute Scott Goodhall made his mark with a fine goal just a minute later Jack Sklenar waltzed through the visitors defence to bring the score to double figures and complete his hattrick in the 62th minute. Jamie Bish who had also come on as a substitute then made it 11-0 from the penalty spot just 2 minutes later. A second strike from Cameron Smith in the 68th minute made it twelve and then Jack Sklenar headed home from a corner for the thirteenth. The home side eased off the gas as the visitors had to complete the game with 10 players after Luke Coghlan left the field with an injury and they had no substitutes. The visitors did show willing in the last 10 minutes creating several half chances but the result was never in doubt and if it had not been for some excellent saves from the visitor’s keeper Danny Cooke in the second half the score-line would have been much bigger.

Bishops Cleeve Res eased their relegation worries with a resounding 6-1 win over bottom Club Berkeley Town. Giles Elliott gave the home side the lead in the 15th minute with a fine shot into the far corner. Chris Parsons made it 2-0 on 25 minutes and then Ben Robinson scored with a great shot from the edge of the box ten minutes later. Midway through the second half Ash Hill made it 4-0 when he scored direct from a corner. Then James Pickup netted the fifth from the penalty spot. Martin Smith pulled a goal back for Berkeley in the 80th minute, but Cleeve’s Adam Gill replied three minutes later with a sixth.

Kingswood forgot to turn up was the comment I received after they were convincingly beaten 3-0 by Thornbury Town. This was Robert Wilks day as he netted all three for the Thorns. All three goals were balls played into space and Wilks out paced the home defence in the 44th – 65th and 75th minute to secure his hattrick.

Yate Town Reserves find themselves in a relegation position and were well beaten by neighbours Chipping Sodbury Town. The home side started well but were pegged back when James Mackie netted for Sodbury after a good move down the right. Justin Cattle headed a second for the visitors and then right on half time an error by the Yate defence allowed Ben Weaver to score a third. Two minutes from the end Shaun Keet netted from the penalty spot for Yate, but Sodbury hit back with a fourth goal from Luke Meacham a powerful shot from the edge of the box.

Kings Stanley’s performance was well below par on the day but the visitors Rockleaze Rangers took full advantage and came away with a 4-0 victory. James Griffiths gave the visitors the lead on 30 minutes with a shot from a very tight angle. Then right on half time Luke Flicker broke down the middle and with the home side appealing for offside and no flag forthcoming had the simple task to slip the ball into the net. A header from Adam Tyers put Rangers further ahead on 55 minutes and in the 70th minute central defender Aaron Day scored at the far post to make it four.

AEK Boco are still looking for that runners-up spot after a 2-0 victory at Bristol Telephones. In what was described as a game with a lot of midfield play and few chances Boco took a half time lead when Jordan Scott scrambled the ball home. A crisp shot from the edge of the box by Liam Powell in the second half put the visitors 2-0 to the good. Telephones only real chance came from a Mike Grist free kick that struck the crossbar.

Two early goals one from each side settle the result at Henbury where Ellwood were the visitors. Darryl Addis put the visitors ahead on 3 minutes but a superb 30 yard strike from Adam Rosser on 15 minutes brought the scores level.

Patchway Town are hovering just outside the relegation zone after they went down 2-0 at home to Gala Wilton. A set piece which the home side failed to clear right on half time allowed Dave Wilkinson to give Gala the lead. A mix up in the home defence accounted for a second goal for the visitors put away by Mike Lee.
