Brooks Villa remain hot on the heels of leaders Clifton Dynamo after they produced a solid display in the Clifton 6 a side league this week to defeat bottom side The Youngsters 2-0. The win keeps Brooks in touching distance and just a point off the leaders after a Mikey Bowles inspired performance saw them get the better of The Youngsters, who despite a good performance here, are still looking for their first win of the season.
SNC Active also remain in the hunt after another victory sees them remain in third spot, a point off Brooks in second and just two points off leaders Dynamo. SNC’s impressive win this week came at the expense of Cliftonites who were unable to make their early pressure count. Buoyed by their first victory last week, Cliftonites bolted from the blocks and put the SNC goal under constant pressure with wave after wave of attack. Cliftonites took a deserved first half lead but despite having numerous chances to add to their tally a second goal went begging. As the second half wore on Cliftonites were still unable to add to their first half strike. Late in the game, after some good approach play, Rich McDermott rose at the far post to head in an equaliser for SNC to stun their opponents. A shell shocked Cliftonites immediately went on the attack but in the dying moments with the game seemingly heading for a draw SNC skipper Jamie Dickinson found himself one on one and produced a cool finish to claim victory for his side with practically the last kick off the game. Ally Walters won the plaudits after his all round display for SNC earned him the man of the match award
