Bristol & District League round-up

WICK Reserves beat Longwell Green Sports A 2-0 thanks to goals from Rich Grinter and Joe Durcan.

They now know that three points against bottom side Nicholas Wanderers Reserves in their final game is all that is required to keep them in the Senior Division for another year.

Rangeworthy stunned Totterdown United Reserves 7-1 on Saturday in a result with delicate implications in the fight for survival in Division One.

They still need four points from their final two games to guarantee safety, but their crushing win, with Jack Dorney, Jake Haynes, Mark Richins, Tony Nelson, Shae Mitchell, Dan Griffiths and Ben Miles all on target, has levelled the goal difference with Seymour United Reserves, whom they trail by three points.

It all means that if they come out of the next two games with three points and a positive goal difference, Seymour will be playing in Division Two next season.

In Division Two, Nicholas Wanderers A are probably safe despite losing 4-1 to Chipping Sodbury Town A as Brad Hackett, Simsek, John Morgan and Jason Bradford all struck for the away side.

Mike Farley replied with a lone strike for the hosts, who could only be sunk to Division Three if bottom side Lloyd Coalpit Heath can muster a six point return from their final two games.

A bit further up the table, Frampton Athletic Reserves drew 4-4 with Frys Club A as Liam Downer (2), Harley Nerthcott and Andy Cleverley scored for Frampton, who finish the season in fourth, while Terry Walker, Martin Grome, Martin Blackmore and Shaun Green scored for seventh-placed Frys.

Hambrook Reserves and Roman Glass St George A, who actually won 4-2 against Hallen B, have been relegated from Division Three.

Liam Greening and Frank Dicks scored for Hallen B but Roman Glass had the firepower necessary to canon them to only their third win of a miserably long season.

One of the two weekend contests in Division Four saw champions Highridge United Reserves slip to a rare defeat away to Westerleigh Sports as Luke Basseng racked up another three goals for the home side in a 3-2 win.

Patrick McCarthy scored both of Highridge’s replies.

Rangeworthy Reserves' point against Crosscourt United Reserves last Wednesday night keeps them in Division Five.
