AEK Boco (sky blue) v Brislington (red/black)  03-12-2022

FA Vase: Bridgwater United survived with ten men for the entirety of the second half during their hard-fought 1-0 victory at home to Cribbs on Friday evening. Having been given a soft booking within one minute of the game kicking-off, Jack Thorne was then dismissed in first half stoppage time after being awarded his second yellow of the night. Incredibly, the undermanned hosts then took the lead four minutes after the restart, with Jack Taylor heading home a George King cross, and despite upward of ten minutes being added at the end of the game, United held on to book their spot in the fourth round.

Saturday was equally successful for Western League sides, with both Buckland and Clevedon joining Bridgwater in the last 32 of the competition. For Buckland, it was very much the Ryan Bush show in their 3-0 win over Laverstock & Ford, with the frontman striking a first-half hat-trick. Bush’s first of the afternoon came after 13 minutes, with a left-footed strike across the keeper nestling in the back of the net. He then beat the offside trap to double Buckland’s advantage, before completing his hat-trick in the build up to half-time with a sliding finish (pictured twice, courtesy of Iain Morland). Things were slightly tougher for Clevedon who battled back from late heartbreak to knock out New Milton Spurs thanks to some exemplary spot kicks. A close range finish from Nathanial Groom after 28 minutes looked to have done the business for the Seasiders, but they were denied at the very death with the visitors drawing level from a stoppage time corner. The game then headed to penalties, and after his four teammates had all slotted home from 12 yards, Syd Camper followed suit to confirm Town’s passage through to next round of the competition.


Premier Division: On Friday night, Welton secured their first clean sheet of the entire season in beating Cadbury Heath 2-0. Billy Manning scored with Rovers first attack of the game to put them ahead, with Lewis Russell then doubling their advantage early in the second half, as Welton grabbed the victory, in the process registering their first shutout this season at the 25th time of asking. The following afternoon, Shepton Mallet continued their perfect start under the new management team by beating Millbrook 3-0. Fin Haines’ opener at the end of the first half put Mallet in front, with Danny Constable then doubling their advantage two minutes after the restart to put their visitors firmly on the back foot. It was then left to Haines to complete the victory, with his glancing header 15 minutes from time ending any hopes of a Millbrook fightback. Saltash managed to extend their lead atop the division by a single point after salvaging a late 2-2 draw at home to Ilfracombe. Having gone ahead at the beginning of the second half through Charlie Elkington, the Ashes found themselves 2-1 down heading into the final 15 minutes following a pair of smart finishes from Ilfracombe regulars Liam Short and Harry Stevens. Then, with just five minutes left on the clock, Adam Carter struck for the hosts to grab a share of the spoils, extending their long unbeaten run in the process. Elsewhere in Cornwall, a couple of the county’s sides drew one apiece, with Torpoint’s leading scorer Curtis Damerell helping his side come from a goal down to tie Falmouth who had led for less than three minutes through Olly Walker. Mousehole racked up their tenth league victory of the campaign after overturning an early deficit to beat Keynsham 3-2 at Trungle Parc. After Owen Brain gave the K’s a surprise fourth minute lead, Mousehole managed to get back on level terms just after the half hour mark through Jack Calver. A quickfire double from Mark Goldsworthy and Tallan Mitchell around the mid-point of the second half suddenly saw the hosts move two in front, and despite conceding to Tyler Linton, and also seeing Mitchell red carded, the Seagulls managed to hold on for an entertaining home victory. In the day’s early kickoff, Sam Farthing scored a second-half equaliser in Sherborne’s 2-2 draw away at Ashton & Backwell, while goals from Rikki Sheppard and Sam Carter, and a penalty save by Kyle Moore helped Helston secure an impressive 2-0 win away at Barnstaple.


First Division: On a busy Friday evening of action, Wincanton Town made a strong return to Moor Lane, scoring twice in either half to defeat Tytherington 4-0 in front of a healthy home crowd. Having not played on home turf since January, the Wasps made a dream start, with Dan Dix and Callum Small putting them two-up within the opening 12 minutes. Wincanton then had to wait until the closing stages before confirming the victory, with Dan Quirke and Jamie Irwin adding further goals in the final few minutes. Elsewhere that evening, second half goals from Dan Spicer and Will Gallagher led Shirehampton to a 2-0 win away at Warminster, while super-sub Zac Cheetham grabbed a dramatic 88th minute winner for Longwell Green Sports, helping them defeat Hallen 2-1 in an entertaining contest under the lights.

In a big day at the top of the table, Wells City moved three points clear thanks to a come-from-behind 2-1 win away at FC Bristol. Having fallen behind to their sixth-placed hosts during the opening moments, Wells completed a late turnaround, with Ben Robertson’s header followed by a free kick from Ali Sen helping them grab maximum points. Nailsea & Tickenham have now fallen three points back after suffering a rare 3-1 defeat at the hands of Gillingham Town. Jordon Clapp’s double and a Max Westlake effort did the business for the Gills who ended a four-match winless run in terrific fashion. Third-placed Brislington also capitalised on Nailsea’s defeat, and are now just three points in arrears after beating AEK Boco 4-1. Oaklan Buck gave the visitors a dream start, putting them in front after less than 60 seconds, with George Jones then making it 2-0 inside the opening ten minutes. A second Jones effort midway through the first half continued Brislington’s ascendancy, with Jordan Ricketts adding the finishing touches late on from the penalty spot. Another side to win on their travels were Bishop Sutton, with their poor recent run in the league put to bed following a 2-1 triumph at Portishead. Sutton’s leading marksman Craig Wilson was the difference between the two sides, and after breaking the deadlock in the 21st minute, Wilson then struck again in the closing stages to keep the home side at bay. The biggest winners of the day were Bristol Telephones, with Archie Dark’s double helping spearhead their thumping 5-0 win at home to Almondsbury. Sam Thomas, Finn Sykes and Javi Blazquez also got on the scoresheet for the Phones who are now unbeaten in three and have moved off of bottom spot thanks to their recent run. In Bath, Courtney Charles played a starring role for Odd Down who came out on top in a five-goal thriller at home to Cheddar. Having gifted their visitors a 21st minute lead following an own-goal, Charles executed a scissor kick to draw Odd Down level after half an hour. Charles then struck once more to put his side 2-1 up at the interval, with the Cheesemen fighting back to level affairs midway through the second half. The influential Charles had a major hand in the winning goal, with his flick through putting Luke Bryan in position to rifle home with his left foot after 85 minutes to grab all three points. Oldland Abbotonians skipper Cash Vinall beat four men before striking a 93rd minute equaliser in his side’s 1-1 draw away at Bishops Lydeard, with Radstock and Hengrove sharing the points after their contest finished with the same scoreline.
