Top game of the day was Stonehouse Town v Frampton United at Oldends Lane. Frampton looking for a win after last week’s defeat and Stonehouse challenging for promotion and the title. Frampton went ahead on 14 minutes when Josh Beadle picked up a loose ball into the box and smashed it home. Beadle had another great chance a few minutes later but home keeper Will Pedrick pulled off a great save. Stonehouse’s Humphries had a good chance but shot wide on 26 minutes. Then just before the break Frampton striker Ryan Vincent went close. At the start of the second half Luke Soule’s shot was just wide and Adam Philp should have scored but shot wide. With Frampton pushing hard for a second goal Daniel Stephens made two great stops on the line for Stonehouse. United increased their lead on 66 minutes when Ryan Vincent and Joe Wilton played a one -two with Wilton finishing it off. Going into the 90th minute Stonehouse pulled a goal back when Tom Palmer smashed a loose ball into the corner of the net. Just after that Adam Philp was sent off for the home side and a minute later the home side were down to nine when Adam Ireland also saw red for a bad tackle.
Hanham Athletic pulled of a good 3-1 win at home to Broadwell Amateurs. The home side took the lead on 16 minutes some good work by Sam Brown and Jamie Fry set up George Cryer to score. Jamie Fry made it 2-0 on 63 minutes with a great header and just two minutes later Tom Welling made it three with a powerful header past keeper Mack Sadler. Broadwell got a consolation on 72 minutes when Harry Williams headed in a Guy Jones cross.
A disappointing game at Patchway Town who entertained local rivals Henbury. Only three chance created by both sides in the first 45 minutes with George Loud sending in a great cross from the right but Simon Lashley hooked the ball over the bar after just 4 minutes. Joe Dolby struck the upright in the 15th minute for Patchway and right on half-time Sam Burgess saved well from a Shaun Heal shot. Early in the second half Henbury keeper Cameron Tarr pushed the ball over from a Luke Garbacz free kick. Midway through the second half Joe Dalby had a good chance for the home side but he pushed the ball straight into the Tarr’s hands after a great cross from Garbacz. Talbot then worked very hard to cut into the box only to see his effort on goal go over the bar. At the other end Ross Jones had an open goal but missed the ball altogether. With the 90 minutes up the last chance fell to Henbury but they failed to take it. The 0-0 score-line was probable a fair result with both teams gaining a point each.
Seven goals at Little Stoke where the lead changed hands on several occasions. Hardwicke the visitors took the lead on 10 minutes when Will Higgins finished of a low cross into the box from close range. Just 5 minutes later it was 2-0 to the visitor’s when Will Higgin’s crossed to the far post where the unmarked Kieran Bryce-Ingles was waiting to tap the ball in.

When you talk about consistency in a Clubs results the Manager of Rockleaze Rangers must be tearing his hair out. After a great result at Frampton United last week they were beaten at home by AEK Boco by four goals to one. A defensive error in the 9th minute allowed Frank Taylor Fox too give Boco the lead. Then on 15 minutes keeper Lewis Brodie denied Taylor Fox a second with great save from his free kick. Boco scored again in the 41st minute from a corner that was headed back from the far post by Austin Shopland for Harrison Kyte to make it 2-0. A life line two minutes later when Ali Boyer’s shot into the top corner made it 2-1. On 65 minutes Brodie pulled off another great save this time from Freddie Taylor-Fox tipping the ball onto the crossbar. On 72 minutes Rangers Mike Perham was unlucky when he struck the foot of the post. Rangers shot themselves in the foot on 75 minutes when keeper Lewis Brodie let a simple back pass from Freddie Short slide under his foot to make it 3-1. Boco wrapped the scoring up in the 77th minute with a cracking shot from a very tight angle from Harrison Kyte.
