Middlezoy Rovers 4, Shepton Mallet Res 0
MIDDLEZOY brushed aside a young Shepton Mallet side with total ease on Saturday and made it three wins on the spin heading into next week’s game against table-toppers Frome Collegians in the Somerset Cup.
The home side found the opener on 11 minutes when last week’s hat-trick man Craig Wright took the ball out of the air and unleashed a superb volley into the net from 25 yards.
Wright’s fine goal scoring form continued on 18 minutes with another beauty, this time an overhead kick, then Charlie Lintell added a third.
The second half was a formality for the Middlezoy but they had to wait until 77 minutes for the fourth goal from them penalty spot converted by Andy Smith.
Middlezoy: S. Baker, S. Bone, C. Lintell, T. Brown (L. Turner), S. Peppin, D. Cann, A. Smith, A. Whaites, D. Luce (C. Singleton), C. Wright, S. Hall (P. Atyeo). Star Man: Charlie Lintell.
l BRIDGWATER Town Res continued their poor form when they travelled to Clutton on Saturday for a Premier Cup tie and lost 4-1.
They return to the Premier League tonight (Tuesday) when they visit Street Res.
