24th January 2015 - Telephones put five past Rockleaze

29 goals scored in 8 fixtures with Cheltenham Civil Service banging in six against Berkeley Town and Bristol Telephones netting five at Rockleaze without reply. Both Thornbury Town and Henbury found the back of the net on four occasions.

Chipping Sodbury Towns win at Kingswood puts them into second place after Kings Stanley lost at home to Gala Wilton.

The bottom two Clubs were both soundly beaten, but Patchway Town beat Southmead CS Athletic to ease their problems at the bottom.

Rockleaze Rangers will be bitterly disappointed with their 5-0 defeat at the hands of Bristol Telephones who are the leagues leading goal-scorers with 84 goals in 24 games. The game kicked off 20 minutes late due to two of the match officials being held up on the motorway due to an accident. Rangers started well and might have gone ahead on 13 minutes when Richard Bray got clear on the left side of the box, but Phones keeper Chris Blammon saved well. Phones went ahead on 17 minutes from a break down the left and Ryan Hicks cutting inside before curling the ball past Burgess from the edge of the box. Phones scored a second on 30 minutes when Dhani Golding cut into the Rangers box before squaring the ball to Luke Palmer to drive past the keeper. Palmer was on target again 3 minutes later When a long cross from the left found him unmarked and he drove a superb volley from 20 yards past Burgess. Rangers should have pulled a goal back in the 35th minute when Sam Andrews cross was met by Liam Jenkins but the header went over the bar. Phones almost got a forth in the 40th minute when Burgess misjudged the cross into the box and with the keeper well off his line Kyran Hunts curling shot went just past the far post.

Rangers started well in the second half and Ed Freeman’s shot in the 48th minute lacked any real punch and Blammon saved easily. In the 57th minute Blamon saved well from Sam Andrews and the keeper was in the thick of it again a few minutes later foiling another good move by Rangers. Phones forth goal on 64 minutes was a great piece of individual skill from Dhani Golding picking the ball up wide on the right from a defensive clearance and from the halfway line he cut inside before making space to send a superb left foot drive past Burgess. The fifth goal in the 67th minute had an element of luck attached as Luke Palmer broke down the right flank before sending in a low hard cross into the six yard box and in his attempt to clear, Alex Fallon sliced the ball into his own net. Rangers still kept plugging away but Blammon was in no mood to let anything past him as he again saved well from a Liam Jenkins shot. 10 minutes from the end Phones almost made it six but Luke Palmers shot hit the crossbar.

Cheltenham Civil Service march on as they thump six past a poor Berkeley Town side. The home side were in control for most of the ninety minutes and although they found the back of the net six times it could easily have been more on the day. Leading goal-scorer Jack Sklenar missed this match but his replacement on the day Paul Holmes found the back of the net on four occasions. Holmes opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a header from a free kick. The second on 17 minutes was a neat bit of play by Holmes who back heeled a cross into the box straight to Jonny Evans to drive home. Holmes got his second on 26 minutes after Evans shot was spilled by the Berkeley keeper the rebound falling nicely for the striker to fire home. A hattrick for Holmes on 52 minutes when the ball was whipped into the box and the striker netted from inside the six yard box. 5-0 in the 74th minute a forth goal from Holmes a 20 yard volley. Just a minute later Mark Jones unmarked on the far post slotted the ball home for number six.

Patchway Town eased their relegation worries with a 2-1 win at home to Southmead CS Athletic. The home side took the lead on 5 minutes when Chris Kritikos was put clear and he rounded the keeper before slotting the ball home. In the 68th minute Southmead levelled the score with a screamer of a shot from Luke Coghlan that flew into the top corner giving the keeper no chance. Patchway snatched the winner in 89th minute when Matt Davies was upended in the box and Ash Brown netted from the spot kick. The visitors finished the game with ten men after Luke Coghlan picked up a second yellow card.

Kingswood took the lead at home to Chipping Sodbury Town in the 40th minute from a cross by Frank Hitchings that was turned in by Gary Simmons. Sodbury had been kept at bay in the first 45 minutes by keeper Chris Fox who made three outstanding saves from his name sake Alex Fox. It was Alex Fox who eventually beat the home keeper when he headed home in the 55th minute. The home side thought they had taken the lead again in the 70th minute but the goal was ruled out for offside. The visitors grabbed the winner in the 80th minute from a ball floated into the box from a free kick and Mike Beacham was there with the finishing touch.

Thornbury Town’s 4-0 victory over Ellwood saw one of their best display’s of the season. They went ahead after 4 minutes from a punched clearance from the Ellwood keeper that fell to Luke Franklin on the edge of the box he took one touch before driving the ball into the corner of the net. The second on 24 minutes a good move that saw Mark Viner send Danny Thompson away down the right and his cross into the box found Craig Lancastle who dived full length to head home. Joe guest made it 3-0 when he cut into the box before hitting his shot into the top corner. Town went 4-0 up on 75 minutes when Nathan Irwin turned in a low cross into the box from Luke Franklin.

Frampton United continue their good run with a slender 1-0 victory at Hanham Athletic. The only goal of the game was a terrific 30 yard shot from Stuart Maule in the 25th minute.

Kings Stanley’s good run also came to an end when they went down 2-1 at home to Gala Wilton. Jake Davies broke through to give the home side the lead on 12 minutes, but 5 minutes later Gala were level from a David Wilkinson shot from the edge of the box. Gala took the lead in the 35th minute from a break down the flank with Martin Smith getting the all important touch from the cross. Stanley almost levelled on 60minutes when Liam Gale just failed to get on the end of a Jake Davies cross. Gala almost snatched a third goal on 75 minutes but for great save by home keeper Ashley Gale. This defeat saw Stanley slip to third in the table.

Bishops Cleeve Reserves remain in deep trouble after a 4-0 defeat at home by Henbury. Adam Rosser gave the visitors a 1-0 lead in the 30th minute and that is how it stayed until the 70th minute when Kane Simpson made it 2-0. Two further goals in the last 2 minutes a second from Kane Simpson on 87 minutes and a second from Adam Rosser in the 89th minute gave the visitors a very comfortable win.
