Weston and District Football League Round-up - Only one game survives weather
2:00pm Wednesday 19th February 2014 in Sport
ONLY one fixture survived the weather in the Weston-super-Mare and District Saturday League with Division 5 Clapton in Gordano going top following a 7-2 victory over second-from-bottom Selkirk Utd.
In this week’s programme, the pick of the fixtures for our local sides is Berrow A’s Page Shield quarter-final clash at home to Clevedon Utd B.
Division 6 leaders Berrow will be confident of going through to the semi-finals against their mid-table opposition.
In Division 1, Berrow Reserves also have a home fixture against third-placed Nailsea United A.
Division 2 Burnham United A could get off the bottom of the table but they will have to topple leaders Draycott to do so.
Wedmore are six points adrift of safety in Division 3 but they can make ground on the rest if they beat Winscombe A at home on Saturday.
King Alfred Sports Centre are in much better shape in Division 4. They sit in second place and could go top if they can overcome third-placed KV FC.
In Division 6, Wedmore Reserves are also in second spot but, with Berrow A eight points ahead at the top, they have a battle on their hands to secure second place and promotion.
On Saturday, they travel to lowly AFC Nailsea Reserves.
Burnham United B will do well to come away with something from their trip to third-placed Worle Rangers Reserves.
l ONLY two games survived the weather in the Taunton & District Saturday League.
Blagdon Hill beat Norton Fitzwarren 7-0 in the quarter-final of the Somerset Intermediate Cup with Pat Sherwood hitting four, Liam Vaughan two and Al Stevens the other.
The scheduled Friday night Rowbarton Charity Cup game between Nether Stowey and Sampford Blues did not take place, with the Blues being awarded the tie, and Dulverton Reserves were awarded their Seward Cup tie against Creech Cougars after the latter fielded an ineligible player.
l A SOLITARY game went ahead this weekend in the Uxella Bridgwater & District Sunday League, as Cornhill temporarily switched their home venue to the all-weather 3G pitch at Taunton’s Castle School in order to ensure their John Morrell Cup Group B tie against Willow Green went ahead.
It was well worth the effort as they ran out 5-0 winners thanks to a hat-trick from Cameron Wilkinson, a 25-yard free kick from Liam Price and a James Hatch strike.
