30th August 2014 - Henbury win derby with Southmead

Chipping Sodbury Town remain top with a draw at Rockleaze Rangers. Gala Wilton are running a close second just one point behind. AEK Boco’s win at Patchway Town puts them into third place.

At the bottom Southmead CS Athletic and Patchway Town are yet to get off the mark after six games.

The local derby between Henbury v Southmead CS Athletic saw the biggest attendance of the day 153 spectators who probably went away very disappointed after watching a game that never really got going. Both teams struggled to create goal scoring chances throughout the game and Southmead’s contribution in the first half as far as goal attempts were concerned was a Danny Tomlin shot that just cleared the crossbar. Henbury did not fair any better but might have taken the lead in the very last minute of the first half when Jack Mills broke down the right fired in a low cross to the near post but Aaron Anglin failed to get his shot on target with just the keeper to beat.

The deadlock was broken in the 59th minute from a cross that came into the box was dropped by the Southmead keeper Danny Cook and Ross Johnson tapped the ball home. Southmead’s Nick Bowering broke clear into the box on 78 minutes but was foiled by home keeper Jamie Farmiloe who then grabbed the ball at the second attempt. Jack Mills saw his shot saved at the second attempt by visitor’s keeper Danny Cook in the 80th minute. Danny Tomlin should have given Southmead a point from this game but with a clear shot on goal he shot wide. As I said earlier this game produced very few chances and a mistake cost Southmead dearly in a game they fully deserved a point.

Gala Wilton are in the scoring mode at present netting another four goals in today’s game at home to Bristol Telephones. Dave Wilkinson opened the scoring for Gala after 3 minutes heading home from a corner. Telephones were level just two minutes later this time it was Ryan Hicks heading home from a corner. The third goal after just 7 minute gave the visitors the lead a cross into the box that was tapped home by Jack Fillingham. A 42nd minute goal from Liam Halliday another close range effort put the home side on level terms. A mistake by the visitors allowed Josh Holford to pounce on the ball round the keeper before sliding the ball home to give Gala the lead in the 70th minute. The forth and final goal in the 79th minute was a neat piece of work from Sammie Hicks and Myron Turner with Turner playing the ball out to Hicks who rounded the keeper and then pulled the ball back for Turner to slot into the net.

Kingswood have got off to a sound start to the season wining four of their first six games and have moved into fourth place in the table. Today’s game at home to Hanham Athletic was a close affair and was won by a single goal midway through the second half. Both teams missed chances in the first half which should have resulted in a different score-line. The 70th minute James Gilvear header from a cross put the home side in front and then 3 minutes later the same player struck the crossbar. A glaring miss by Ryan Mudd in the 85th minute could have made it more comfortable for the home side.

Rockleaze Rangers have recorded two good results in the space of five days. Their win at Ellwood on bank Holiday Monday was followed up today with an excellent point against league leaders Chipping Sodbury Town. Sodbury started the stronger and only a brilliant save from Rangers keeper Sam Burgess prevented Justin Cattle giving them the lead after 4 minutes. The home side had a great chance to take the lead in the 13th minute but Aaron Day headed wide of the target with just the keeper to beat. Ed Freeman also squandered a good chance to put the home side into the lead. It was the visitors who went in front in the 39th minute when Burgess misjudged the ball after it took a bobble and this left Danny Coombes the simple job of running the ball into the net from outside the box. Although both sides created chances in the second half it was Rangers who scored in the 55th minute from a forty five yard free kick from Sam Andrews that was met by Ed Freeman on the far post to sent a looping header over the Sodbury keeper to level the score.

Patchway Town have got off to the worst start to the season for many years and have yet to pick up a point this season. Today’s visitors AEK Boco on the other hand have got off to a flying start. The visitors took the lead in the 30th minute when Ben Menear was put through on goal. A second goal on 53 minutes a header from Dan De-Gay put Boco two up. Darren Werrett then missed a penalty for the visitors well saved by home keeper Martin Alford who also saved the rebound. Unfortunately Alford picked up two yellow cards and was dismissed later in the game but the home side held out.

Yate Town Reserves picked up their first point of the season in a goalless draw at home to Frampton United. The best chance fell to the home side in the first half when Luke Burman was through on goal but shot over the bar. The home side had to play the whole game with their centre back Dan Wharton in goal due to the normal keeper falling ill. The spokesman for Yate said that the stand in keeper was outstanding the whole of the game.
