Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Division One: Sharpness 0 Dursley Town 3
2:11pm Thursday 17th January 2013 in Gloucestershire Sport
DURSLEY stunned derby rivals Sharpness with their most complete performance of the season to earn an impressive victory at Hamfields.
Terry Stevenson’s side bounced back from their timid County Cup exit by producing a no-nonsense display in a typically full-blooded clash with their Severnside rivals.
Mike Reece gave Town a 17th-minute lead when his left-wing free-kick squeezed in at the near post with goalkeeper James Marklove seemingly expecting a cross.
The Sharks responded with a n Ian Watkins shot that struck the crossbar shortly afterwards, but they rarely looked as dangerous again as the visitors held sway.
Dursley added the crucial second goal just before half-time when Callum Dummelow slotted home after Town won a couple of juddering challenges in the build-up.
Sharpness did their best to rally after the break, but Town remained comfortable and had the chances to extend their lead further.
Martin Booth and Curtis Mills could have made the game safe long before the visitors eventually scored their third goal of the afternoon at the death.
Aaron Nash exchanged passes with substitute Matt Humphrey before rounding-off a thoroughly-deserved victory with a fine finish.
Dursley goals: Reece (17), Dummelow (44), Nash (90).
