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 Division 1.
Beeches FC 3-2 Sporting Box FC
Beeches Show True Grit
Despite still reeling from a number of injuries it was Beeches who raced into a 2-0 halftime lead courtesy of goals from Lee Causon and the ever impressive Steve Ball.
Sporting made a game of it though in the second half and although they found the net twice through Jake Angell and Zilwwod Stead a John Williams goal proved the difference.
Royal Oak FC 5-2 Lavis FC
Solid Oak Statement!
Although the first half was a tight affair with Oak taking in a slender 1-0 lead the floodgates opened somewhat in the second half with a further 6 goals for both sides.
Liam Moffat scored twice as well as singles for Josh Duckett, Cameron Lee and Jed Kirkwood for Royal Oak Jack Sterling and Francois Allen provided the responses for Lavis as Oak ran out 5-2 winners.
Sutton Benger FC 0-1 Biddestone FC
Buttons Undone By Biddestone
With neither side yet to record a win this season this represented a great chance for both sides to pick up their first 3 points of the season and Sutton Benger and Biddestone played out a tight affair which was won by the narrowest of margins.
Biddestone started the brighter and it seemed that slightly more aggressive approach seemed to be working wonders and they were causing all types of trouble with their height advantage.
And this would prove to be where the match was won and lost when a free kick was put into a dangerous area only for the ball to go in off the hapless Jason Cole for an own goal.
Benger just could not seem to invoke their passing game with many passes going astray but with the pace of Ethan Jones and with Tom Stratton leading the line they would have though that a passage back into the game was possible but in fairness they were only able to feed off a few half chances as the final ball left a lot to be desired.
And so the score remained 1-0 to the visitors to get their season up and running.
