4:57pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
CHQ Utd moved into second place in the M4 Karting Cirencester & District League with a hard fought 5-3 away success at the Beeches. Jake Blackford and Ben Saunders both scored twice for the victors, with Richard Gardiner adding the other. Luke Crosbee, Chris Fields and Danny Gudger were on target for the The Beeches.
Real Fairford picked up their first win of the season with a 5-2 victory over Oaksey, with Luke Richards hitting a hat-trick for the home side. The other Fairford scorers were Mark Houlton and Ollie Taylor, with Jake Peglar responding twice for Oaksey.
Sherston sprung a surprise with a 7-3 victory away at Lechlade although the home side were lacking several regulars. Joe Webb with two goals and Liam Moor were the Lechlade scorers.
There was only one game in Division Two, where Minety, although scoring their first goal of the season through Michael Terron, lost 3-1 at Oaksey Res, a result that moves the Wiltshire side up to joint-top on equal points with Lechlade Res and Kingshill Sports.
Minety should take heart from their gutsy performance, particularly in the second half when despite being 3-0 down they showed good spirit.
Several League sides were in County Cup action, with Poulton in the Minor Cup recording a comfortable 7-1 victory over visitors Rambers FC A from the Stroud League.
Rob Paget notched a hat-trick, with Steve Andrews and John Dawson grabbing two each for the home side. In the same competition, Siddington Sports beat Lechlade Res 4-2.
In the Primary County Cup, Siddington Sports Veterans had a good 6-1 away victory at Cheltenham League side Andoversford Res, and Matt Hunt hit a hat-trick for Down Ampney in their 3-1 win at Chalford III of the Stroud League.
Despite home advantage, South Cerney Res were edged out by Tidenham Reserves by the odd goal in five, with Jordan Allen and Rob Dickson getting the Cerney goals. Tetbury Town III lost 3-1 at Staunton & Corse Res, and the Beeches Res were unable to raise a side for their visit to The Village, and the home side received a wallkover to the next round. There was success however for Kingshill Sports who recorded an excellent 2-0 away win at Stonehouse Thirds.
