Sunday 26th September saw the month’s fixtures wrapped up in the Shoestrings-Chargrill Sponsored Chippenham & District Sunday Football League and it is fair to say it has been a month full of goals and cup shocks. Let us see how the month ended in the Premier League.
AFC Melksham 5-1 Semington
Matching Pair For Melksham Against Semington
On another very warm Sunday both teams played some nice passing football but Melksham once again were the team that had their shooting boots on and it was Keiron Pearce who opened the scoring when he ventured forward from the back to drive a hard low strike that gave veteran goal keeper Alan Clark no chance with. Rhys Talmash then scored his first of the morning with a rocket of a left foot shot for 2-0.
Semington grew into the game and tested Melksham goalkeeper, Adam Dhimsa who pulled of two wonderful saves to deny Bobby Mitchell and Dan Rimmer.
Just before the half time whistle Jorden Kirk forced his way forward to latch on to a cross from Jack Baker to go in at half time three to the good.
The second half started with a mini Semington revival as Bobby Mitchell scored to make it 3-1 only for Rhys Talmash to score another 2 to claim another matchball as Melksham finish the month with 4 wins out of 4.
Midfield duo Zac Hillier and Jorden Kirk were outstanding and Alex De Silva making his long awaited absence from injury played the whole 90 minutes. Semington’s Scott Boyd was singled out for some praise from opposition manager Mike Rogers even though he had the unenviable job of watching the leagues top marks man Talmash. Neil Hawker was also praised for excellent game with the whistle.
Chippenham Icons FC 1-3 FC Devizes United
United Hot On The Heels Of Melksham
FC Devizes United ran out 3-1 winners against Chippenham Icons at Leafy Lane but I am sure Icons manager Steve Hunt will be thinking that their first win is just round the corner after putting in a competitive performance.
Although Ryan Nicholls notched for Icons, the final score was 3-1 to Devizes.
Corsham Wildcats A-W FC Lacock
