SUNDAY LEAGUE: Pether nets winner in Halcrow victory

First published in Football

HALCROW secured a thrilling 3-2 win over West Swindon Wanderers in Division Three of the Swindon Sunday League.

James Joyce gave West Swindon the lead when he slotted calmly into the bottom-left corner.

However, Halcrow were soon level when Jack Notton’s cross was superbly volleyed in by Oli Boston.

Boston then returned the favour by beating four players and setting up Notton for his first, before Elliot Pether’s wonder-strike went in off the crossbar. The scoring was completed when substitute Jamie Durup capitalised on a defensive error, but it was not enough for West Swindon.

Elsewhere in the division, Tap & Barrel moved out of the bottom two with a 4-1 victory at Dynamo Ashton.

Tap were 2-0 up thanks to goals from Ryan Phillips and Joe Cosway before Ashley Harris pulled one back.

Sam Broadbank blazed a penalty over the bar for Tap but goals from Pete Ockwell and Cosway - the latter’s effort a sublime lob - ensured victory.

In Division Two, Jamie McGahey and Andy Cleasby scored in Blyskawica’s 10-2 loss to Dolphin.

A goal from Stratton Saints’ Steve Norriss was not enough to stop Urban Allstars’ charge in Division Six. Allstars were 3-1 up at half-time and eventually ran out 8-1 winners.

In Division Seven, Rosier Rovers made it three wins on the spin after recording a 3-2 win over FC Wedge.

Rovers were 1-0 down at half-time after Wedge scored a penalty, before Will Rosier claimed Rovers’ equaliser.

Wedge went in front once more but a Jack Crane brace handed Rovers all three points.

James Murray and Rob Marsdon scored for Wedge, n GET your Swindon Sunday League reports in the Adver by emailing details to by 11am on Mondays.
