THERE was nothing to separate third-placed Didmarton and Randwick (one position below them) as they played out an entertaining if goalless draw at The Street.

Stroud & District Div One

Didmarton 0

Randwick 0

The first half was open and evenly-matched with chances being created by both teams. Randwick looked dangerous going forward with both full backs and wingers combining effectively to pressure Didmarton's backline, who coped well and denied the visitors any clear opportunities.

Didmarton had chances of their own with forward Simon Best going close when he nipped the ball past the Randwick keeper only for the angle to prove too tight to capitalise.

The second half contained further chances for both sides and after 15 minutes Randwick found themselves through on goal only for the low strike to come back off the post.

Didmarton went straight up the other end on the counter with Best hitting the post from an acute angle.

Didmarton's keeper Waldron kept his side from conceding thanks to some dominant claims from crosses and his distribution was consistently excellent, which eased any pressure on the home side.

There may have been no goals but the open game reflected the two team's league positions. MoM: Gary Waldron.
