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 2.
Calne United 8-1 Kingfisher
United Keep Up The Winning Streak
They took an early lead thanks to a goal from Adam Welch and confidence was really brewing when further goals were added by Danny Wykes and Alex Ambrus.
They went in at half time with a comfortable 4-0 lead thanks to Welch’s second of the game.
The second half carried on in much the same patter with Dale Wood getting in on the act and any thoughts of another comeback for fisher were well and truly over when Welch collected the matchball.
A consolation goals was pulled back through Ed Baldwin but that was all that Fisher could muster as a second from Wykes and a final eight goal by David Williams completed the rout.
FC Box 12-0 The Pewsham FC
Box Continue Impressive Start Against Sorry Pewsham
A perfect Sunday morning for was met with some fantastic football in this fixture at Box Recreation Ground as FC Box who were heavy favourites before the ball was kicked ran out 12-0 winners against the newly renamed The Pewsham FC.
The Pewsham were always going to be a potential banana skin but Box started brightly and produced some nice passing football which paid off in the first 10 mins with a lovely goal from Jack Brain.
Box started to turn the screw and dominate the first half with Spencer Dymond-Hall concertinaing goals with Brain meaning they had a hat-trick apiece and a 6-0 score line by the half time whistle.
The Pewsham didn’t give up though and had chances of their own, notably one that James Whitehead, returning from a 3 game ban, fantastically got down to save.
The second half started very sloppy for both teams but Box finally found their rhythm again and bagged 2 more in the first 15 mins with goals from James Lye and a fantastic dribble and shot from Toby Gingell.
Despite the score line, The Pewsham still did themselves proud and never gave up, forcing Whitehead into another world class save from a free kick that he tipped onto the crossbar.
Box added another 4 goals with a brace from Andy Woods, another from James Lye and a first goal of the season from new father Callum Talmash.
Box manager Stuart Donnelly paid credit to The Pewsham, who despite the score line, played the gams in the correct spirit and were a credit to the CDSFL.
Hayden Hubbard was also singled out for praise in the middle and did everything he could to let the game flow.
Steeple Ashton 1-5 Fox & Hounds (Warminster) FC
Five Star For The Foxes
There was one previous encounter to gauge a potential outcome and that was in a pre-season friendly where Steeple Ashton got the bragging rights in a 4-3 win.
However, it was roles reversed this time around as Fox & Hounds started the game in high tempo and it didn’t take them long to get the first chance at goal. Myles Woodward getting the Foxes off to a great start after 7 minutes knocking in a rebound after keeper Dale Raine parried a curling effort from Adam Tester into his path.
The second was from the spot, after Myles Woodward was taken out after an electric run into the box, dispatched with ease by Reece Collyer, Foxes 2-0 after 22 minutes played. The 3rd came after a nice ball over from the right channel by Myles Woodward, which found Adam Tester at the back post, who looped the header back across goal with Raine making another great save but again it was only pushed as far as an opposition player in the shape of Sean Shook who was able to keep the ball low and drilled it past the keeper.
Long throws were always a problem for the Ashton and the 4th came from a Myles Woodward long throw to the front post, which was flicked on by Steve Corbin and dispatched at the back stick by a Jason Stokes header. Steeple Ashton were by no means non existent in this game and they were kept at bay with some great saves in the first half by debutant keeper Conner North.
The teams remained the same for the start of second half. Steeple Ashton looking to spark a fightback with a flurry of half chances but the Foxes back line remained strong. Changes on both flanks after 70 minutes saw Taylor Kitley come on for Myles Woodward and Josh Kent came on for Adam Tester. The subs then combined just a few minutes later with a great run into the box by Kitley with a simple ball inside the Steeple Ashton box which found an unmarked Kent who stroked it in from a few yards and 5-0.
Sean Snook was replaced by Jake Owen and a small reshuffle in the middle of the park after 80 minutes. Steeple Ashton then found a consolation goal that was probably deserved 6 minutes from time through Scott Wallace however the Foxes were able to finish the game off 5-1.
