Somerset County League Division 1

Burnham Utd 3, Staplegrove 3

BURNHAM United came from behind three times to secure a point against Staplegrove in an entertaining Somerset County League Division 1 match at Cassis Close on Saturday.

United conceded first in windy conditions but Mike Stevens got them back on level terms, only for the Taunton side to restore their advantage soon afterwards.

Jaymie Whitehouse equalised again before the break and, after Burnham had fallen behind for a third time in the second half, Ed Lamb’s goal earned the hosts a share of the spoils.

The result keeps Burnham 13th, five points above the bottom three, ahead of Saturday’s trip to Somerton Town.

Burnham Utd: Tom Starks, Ben Gates, Russell Holley, Harry Penfold, Elliot Lamb, Jaymie Whitehouse, Ed Lamb, Charlie Harding, Mike Stevens, Joe Selway, Curtis Bradshaw. Subs (used): Jordan Costello, Jamie Merrick, Warren Whitfield


HUNTSPILL Crowns’ Weston & District League Division 4 title hopes hit a bump in the road on Saturday as they were comfortably beaten 5-1 at Clevedon United A.

James Gibbons netted for Crowns, who were also reduced to 10 men as Phil Orme was sent off on a tough afternoon for the visitors.

Huntspill have done performed admirably to keep pace with league leaders Weston Town, but the pace-setters are now six points ahead with a game in hand on the Crowns.

Elsewhere in the division, Burnham United B slipped to a disappointing 1-0 home defeat against Weston Celtic in a mid-table clash.

United B could do Huntspill a favour on Saturday as they visit Weston Town.

In Division 3, goals from Matthew Dibble and Kieran Ellis secured a 2-1 win for Burnham United A at Congresbury A in Division 3.

United, who the previous weekend had reached the Bob Keyes Cup final, will look to continue their momentum by giving league leaders Shipham a bloody nose at Cassis Close on Saturday (3pm).

Burnham United Under-18s played their final match of the Somerset Under-18 League South Division campaign on Sunday - and it was a thriller.

United travelled with the bare 11 players but goals from Harvey Barnshaw (2), Cain Smith, Elliot Keen and Aminul Barik secured a 5-4 win at Minehead.

United sit third and can finish no lower than fourth, where they will end up if Wembdon win their game in hand.
