DIVISION THREE: Somerford move top on goal difference

A 7-0 victory for Somerford away at Corsham Park Rangers has taken Gary Chandler’s side to the summit of Division Three on goal difference from Staverton, which has set up a fantastic climax to what has already been a pulsating battle for the number one spot between the two sides.

Somerford have to play Corsham again while Staverton visit Bremhill View Boys next weekend hoping to reclaim to spot.

Corsham Park held their own for the opening 30 minutes and actually had the better of the chances before Lee Fernandez put Somerford in front on 32 minutes when he fired home a well struck free kick.

Ten minutes later Gavin Klukowski doubled the lead that set up Chandler’s men for a productive second half.

Ashley Monaghan made it 3-0 on 60 minutes and quickfire goals from Chris Yeo and a second from Klukowski in the 63rd and 64th minute saw Somerford equal with Staverton at the top.

And when Monaghan found the net to claim his second and his side’s sixth, they were now top of the pile - to give themselves a little breathing space over their title rivals, a last minute penalty from Chris Yeo secured them a two goal advantage ahead of their final matches of the season.

Bremhill View Boys 2 The Talbot FC 5

Bremhill View Boys, who secured their third division status last weekend, beat local rivals Talbot FC 5-2 at Priestley Grove to leave them on the verge of relegation back to division four.

Bremhill, who lost the reverse fixture 1-0, hit the ground running and took a deserved 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Ben Radford and Rory Worthington but they were pegged back before half time as Nathan West reduced the deficit with a well taken goal.

John Fortey restored a two goal advantage for Bremhill Boys but back came the Talbot and a second of the morning from West kept them in the contest but not for long as Luke DeBoer added a fourth for Garry Marshall’s side before Richard Clargo’s first goal for the club wrapped up their 5-2 success.

Kings Arms (All Cannings) 11 North Star B 0

Relegation threatened North Star B started their game away at Kings Arms (All Cannings) with ten players and finished it with eight as injuries left them with an uphill task in a match they needed to get something from as they fight to preserve their third division status - and it was little surprise that come the final, Star had suffered a heavy loss as Kings Arms ran out 11-0 victors.

Shaun Jefferies led the scoring with a six timer, John Stockman helped himself to a hat trick and singles from Bradley Whitbread and Jon Giddings made up their eleven goals.

The teams meet again in a fortnight’s time with North Star needing a draw to avoid relegation.
