Charmouth go marching on

ANOTHER resounding victory – an 8-3 home win over Shepton Beauchamp – sees Charmouth firmly sat at the top of the Perry Street League Division Two.

The Robins started out slowly and were put under pressure early on by Shepton. But they soon woke up and forced a series of three corners as they got into their stride.

A couple of early efforts form Ashley Williams flashed past the post and a good save from Shepton was encouraging but Charmouth switched off again. A Shepton corner saw the ball go back out to the corner taker and with no pressure from Charmouth, he whipped in a cross that found the back of the goal to make it 1-0 to Shepton.

This sparked Charmouth into life with two more shots. A great team move with Adzy Whitehouse feeding Sam Dibling who calmly set up Brin Seward for a tap-in equaliser. Two minutes later Dibling fed Brin Seward to give Charmouth a 2-1 lead.

Charmouth were still looking a little shaky with Shepton creating chances and a corner. But Charmouth broke away again with an awesome volley from Ashley Williams making it 3-1.

Shepton fired back quickly after Charmouth failed to clear their lines form a corner.

Then on 45 minutes Sam Dibling’s deflected free-kick found the net.

Two minutes later Charmouth struck again with Dibling assisting Brin Seward for his hat-trick and giving Charmouth a 5-2 lead at half-time.

The second half started at a slower pace with Charmouth playing better football. Whitehouse had a free-kick saved but then Seward managed to miss an open goal from three yards out.

Charmouth continued to press with a couple of corners and then Ty Allen extended their lead to 6-2.

The Robins had a goal ruled offside, a Dibling shot being deflected into the net by Ty Allen but correctly ruled out.

Shepton hit back after reducing the arrears to 6-3. Whitehouse then hit the bar with a 30-yard shot before Seward netted his fourth to make it 7-3 to Charmouth.

The game was wrapped up when Jack Farrant assisted Seward to complete the 8-3 scoreline.

The man-of-the match went to Steven Wooloff for a workman like performance in the middle of the park.

This was another great result and a massive thank-you goes to the club’s home kit sponsor Charmouth Stores for providing a new kit.
