A SCOTT Boyd-inspired display helped Miller Sports A to 4-0 victory at the Beeches which saw them replace opponents Southwick Wanderers at the top of Division two and in the driving seat for a place in division one next season.
Boyd provided the cross for Nathan Drew who gave Miller half-time lead. Boyd then took the corner that led to Dave Jenkins doubling Miller’s advantage with a simple tap in.
Boyd then went from provider to scorer with the final two goals, his first coming after being set up by Drew and his second owed much to the efforts of Dan Waylan who after beating the last defended picked out Boyd who rolled the ball into the empty to seal victory for Mike Stevens' side.
AFC Avellinos 1 Potterne CFC 8
BASEMENT side AFC Avellinos failed to win for a ninth successive game after they were beaten 8-1 at home by a Potterne CFC side who were on the brink of calling it a day just a week ago.
Craig Townsend’s four timer, two from Neil Clark and singles for Wayne House and James Campbell made up Potterne’s eight.
Jamie Parlour’s goal on his debut gave Avellinos their consolation FC Buscots 3 Talbot FC 0 FC Buscots remain on course to take the title after their 3-0 triumph over Talbot FC whose latest defeat was their fourth on the trot.
After a goalless first half Buscots broke the deadlock through Jake Waters. A trademark wonder goal from Phil Little doubled their advantage and the points were made safe when Phil Strange headed in his third own goal in as many weeks to give Mark Camacho’s side their sixth win in eight games to move them within three points of leaders Miller Sports who have played five games more than Buscots.
