12:01pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
CHQ UTD remain in top spot in Division One of the M4 Karting Cirencester & District League Div One after a convincing 6-1 victory over visitors The Beeches.
Chris Saunders hit a hat-trick, Ben Saunders added a brace and Joey Beckford completed the scoring.
Despite going 2-0 down early on at Oaksey, with James Pike and Chris Brookes scoring for the home side, Bibury Reserves hit back with five goals to maintain their unbeaten run and remain in second place in the table, two points behind the leaders but with a game in hand. Nathan Brunton was man of the match with a hat-trick, while Ryan Bowen got the other two Bibury goals.
An excellent match at Siddington saw Siddington Sports and South Cerney contest a 2-2 draw, which both sides considered a fair result in a game well contolled by referee Pete Smith.
Jamie Axford and Sean Rose were on target for the home side, with Ian McSherry and George Ford scoring for the visitors.
Real Fairford beat Lechlade 87 FC 3-1, with Scott Humphries scoring twice and Chris Nash getting the other goal. Lechlade, for whom Alex Hammond scored their goal, have still not picked up a point in their four outings this season and remain rooted to the foot of the table.
Stratton Utd were foiled in trying to pick up their first points when their game at home to Sherston was abandoned.
In Division Two, Oaksey Reserves took advantage of Kingshill Sports' inactivity to leapfrog them into top spot after their 4-2 victory away at Lechlade Reserves.
The visitors established an early two-goal lead through Ieuan Walton and Richard Lockyear, but Lechlade hit back strongly with two headed goals from Tony Hicks and Tim Reynolds to equalise. However, further goals from Walton and Adam Wickson in the second half, sealed victory and the points for Oaksey Reserves.
A see-saw game at Ashton Keynes resulted in visitors South Cerney Reserves eventually emerging with the points in a 3-4 victory. Scott Humphries, with two goals, and Chris Smith were Ashton's scorers with Jordan Allen (two), Nathan Littler and Craig Rennie hitting the net for Cerney.
Luckless Down Ampney were well beaten at home by Siddington Sports Veterans, who hit eight goals without response. Declan King, with four goals led the rout, with the other strikes coming from Jack Baverstock, Jon Reeves, Richard Walsh and Michael Richens.
Sadly, The Beeches FC have been forced to fold their reserve side in Division Two, so their record this season will shortly be removed from the statistics and table. The full league tables can be viewed at www.full-timethefa.com.
