Weekly Round-up for Sunday 2 May 2021.
We start as usual with Division 1(A)
Dynamo Leamington 4 Ettington Rovers 3
A goal fest here like the reverse fixture. Dynamo had this one wrapped up earlier this time as Roberto Ciuffini and an Ashley Rowley brace in the first 25 minutes had given Dynamo the advantage. Glen Mathew pulled one back before half time. Mathew got a second from the penalty spot 15 minutes into the second half to make it interesting, and it was nip and tuck until the last 5 minutes. Ciuffini gave Dynamo the two goal advantage again, but Ettington grabbed a stoppage time last gasp through George Buckingham but it wasn’t enough. Dynamo jump their close rivals.
Heathcote Athletic 1 Khalsa 2
Khalsa came to the party late here as Nick Keenan had put Heathcote ahead on the half hour. A late pair from Joshua Mann and David Benton in the last 20 minutes doing the damage. Khalsa close up on their rivals and are still in the hunt for Runners up spot.
Radford Albion 2 Long Itchington 2
A close one here as Reese Sangha put the Long Men ahead on 12 minutes and Daniel Burden levelled just past the half hour. A rapid fire brace , one from each side kept things level in the second half. James Platt for Radford and Michael Clement for the Long Men, who lose ground at the top of the table.
We move on to Division 1(B)
AFC Warwick 3 Leamington Hibs 7
Hibs took the points but it wasn’t all one way here. AFC went ahead through Daniel McGranaghan and it was then tit for tat as David Jones levelled, Joshua Cox restored the AFC lead only for Jones to restore parity again. George Ferridge then popped up to give AFC the lead going into the half time break. The second half then belonged to Hibs and old war horse Josh Blake led the way with a hat-trick in the first 17 minutes of the re-start. It was all done bar the shouting and Craig Wallsgrove and Jack Marsden finished it off to take the points and Hibs retain their 100% record at the top of the table.
Hampton Magna 3 Blackdown 3
Magna in front from Trav Lea but Blackdown were level ten minutes later through Kelsey Fawke. Fergus Laird then put Blackdown ahead and it looked like the points were going back to Leamington. Matthew Compton then equalised with 25 minutes to go only for Scott Hughes to restore the Blackdown advantage. Trav Lea popped up with 15 minutes left on the clock to make it all square and that’s how it stayed. Blackdown remain second in the table but Magna have two games in hand.
Khalsa Reserves 1 Leamington FC Vets 6
A late Stuart Wheatcroft consolation here for Khalsa as the Vets had already been and gone! Jamie Barr led the way with a hat-trick. James Keller added a brace. Nathan Hands with the other strike. The Vets move up alongside their rivals in the table.
Real Barston 1 Bishops Tachbrook 3
Tachbrook were 0 – 2 up by half time here through Craig Williams and Jack Villiers and it stayed that way until late into the second half. Dean Pugh made it 0 – 3 with 15 minutes to go but Jason Smith pulled one back 2 minutes later but Tachbrook held on comfortably.
We move on to Division 3
Chadwick End 1 Engine FC 0
The Engine are misfiring now and Chadwick are on the up. The only goal of the game from George Curry on the half hour but it was enough. Chadwick are in the hunt for Honours now and Engine seem to have blown a gasket.
Warwick Printing 1 Cubbington FC 4.
Fastest goal of the day here for Luke Swinnerton on 2 minutes and he had a brace 15 minutes later. Benjamin Rowan extended the lead just before half time but Harvey White gave the Printers hope with a strike just before the whistle. Two minutes after the re-start and Sam Ashford restored the three goal advantage and that’s how it stayed. Cubbington move top and look good value for money with recent results.
Warwickshire Police 0 Princethorpe 2
Police were undone here by a disasterous throw in mistake to give Princethorpe an early lead. It was a great game to watch and full of action and the cops could easily have had the points. Callum Carsley wrapped it up latching onto a through ball and finishing neatly under the Cops keeper. A nice Cameo from Lee Carsley for 20 minutes was good to watch, but the Cops looked far too good for their current bottom of the table slot.
We finish as usual with Division 4
Foresters 7(Seven} Romer FC 0
The woodmen were in charge here as the rattled off seven without reply. Dan Eykyn got the first on 5 minutes. A brace from Josh Marshal supported by Daniel Griffin Joseph Wright, Adam Smith and Dan Brown doing the damage. Foresters stay clear at the top.
Long Itchington Reserves 4 Napton 3
A game of two halves here as Napton took the first half with Ryan Fox leading the way on 8 minutes followed by an own goal 10 minutes later. Aiden Print made it 0 – 3 just before half time. The second half comeback started with Isaac Tse 8 minutes after the re-start. Four minutes later Will Bradbury Added another. With 22 minutes left on the clock it became the William Shields show as he bagged a brace and the points for the Long Men.
Wellesbourne Wanderers 2 Radford Semele Social Club 3
A bit ding dong here but the Radford boys held on to take the points. It was nip and tuck until a late Leyton Sidhu strike settled it. Max Dale and George Bryan on target for Wellesbourne, David Ramsey and Paul Wilkinson with the other Radford strikes. Radford stay second but have a game in hand.
Whitnash Sports & Social Club 1 Castle Rangers 1
