Semi-final drama and League titles settled in thrilling weekend fixtures.

An enthralling set of fixtures played out at the weekend to set up one half of each of three end of season finals, whilst also producing two more league champions in the process.

Ted Young Senior Cup
Kev Davies came off the bench to bag a brace to send Hailey into their second cup final of the season. After reaching the Fred Ford Cup Final last month, they faced off against Tower Hill to determine who would become the first side into the Senior Cup Final. Luke James and Jesse Lawrence scored for Tower Hill with Freddie Buckingham and Travis O’ Connor responding for Hailey to leave it at 2-2, with Davies’ heroics from the bench settling things inside 90 minutes. They’ll play the winner of Kirtlington and Hollybush who play next week.

Watts Junior Cup
Stephen Pearce and Levi Steele both scored doubles to send Milton into the Junior Cup final. Milton comfortably overcame fellow Division One side Eynsham SSC 7-2 thanks to further goals from Louis Breaks and Alex Ayres, as well as an Eynsham own goal. Nathan Prestidge and Ryan Harrison grabbed the consolations for Eynsham who sadly fell at the last hurdle.

Milton will play the winner of the game between Stonesfield and Bampton in the other semi-final.

Supplementary Cup
Following in the footsteps of the Fred Ford and Jack Busby Cups, the Supplementary Cup will see new champions after the current holders were dumped out in the penultimate round. Hook Norton were the successors as they thumped current holders Carterton Town B 6-1 in the semi-final affair.

Jay Mair hit four to get Hook Norton well on their way to victory with Ben Haynes and Josh Hunt grabbing the extras to make sure of victory. Ben Moreby’s own goal was Carterton’s only consolation.

Hook Norton will play the winner of Wootton and Bourton Rovers Reserves who play next week.

Premier Division
Charlbury took a giant step towards the Premier Division title with a well battled 2-0 victory over Minster Lovell.

Needing seven points to secure the title before the game, Kieran Hunt’s double took them three points closer with just two games to go. Their season is hurtling towards the crucial game against Hailey on the 20th April where they could be crowned champions.

Carterton Rangers helped themselves off the bottom of the league and all but ended FC Hollybush’s title challenge with a 4-2 victory at Kilkenny Lane.

Jack Robinson and an own goal looked set to keep up Hollybush’s pursuit of Charlbury but Rangers hit back through a Liam Day double with further goals from Mykel Ryan and Ryan Callow to seal a crucial three points in the relegation battle.

Division One
The Division One title race was made a little tighter after second placed Moreton Rangers defeated league leaders Stonesfield. Moreton are now just four points behind thanks to the victory, courtesy of goals from Cal Peters (2) and Ben Shurmer. Mike Phipps hit back for Stonesfield but it finished 3-1. Stonesfield are four points clear with two games to go but it’s now a potential three horse race with Milton’s considerable games in hand. Stonesfield need five points from their two remaining games to win the title.

Chadlington kept up the pressure on the top two and heaped a load of pressure on Witney Royals at the bottom, as they battled to a 2-1 victory. Matt Chadwick and Jordan Godfrey earned the three points. Corey Donohoe replied for Royals but it wasn’t to be. Chadlington remain three points off second spot with one game to go. Royals are still in the bottom two but have four games left to change that.

Dan Bott scored once again as he helped Middle Barton defeat Bampton United. He grabbed a brace with Tony Beckham scoring a third. Bampton’s very own goal machine, Chris Laurence, hit back for Bampton but it finished 3-1 in the end.

Division Two
Congratulations are in order for Minster Lovell Reserves who have secured the Division Two title on their last game of the season. Frank Webb scored a screamer for Minster to bring the scores level against a dogged Aston Reserves which earned them the solitary point required to seal the championship.
It was a necessary point as well, with Siege FC forfeiting their game against Kingham earlier in the day, Minster needed to make absolutely sure that things were out of Kingham’s hands before their last game of the season.
Seb White had scored for Minster but Ryan Colleton and Reece Wain replied for Aston to heap all the pressure back on Minster. But they were not to be denied as Webb popped up with a fantastic equaliser to send the Minster men into wild celebrations as the final whistle brought their season to a close in the best way possible.

Kingham’s walkover victory guarantees them second place in the league with one game remaining.

Division Four
Further congratulations go to Chadlington Reserves who saw results go their way at the weekend to allow them to secure the Division Four title. They’ve been on fire since the turn of the calendar year, unbeaten since December 8th and haven’t looked back as they eventually secured the title with two games to spare.

Alfie Peachey hit his eleventh goal in three games as Chadlington romped to victory over Stonesfield Reserves, incidentally, the last team to beat them in the league in that December reverse. Peachey scored his third consecutive hat-trick by scoring four goals in the 7-0 rout, including a 30 yard strike during the first half which was the pick of his goals.

Further goals from Ellis Godin (2) and Ollie Jordan made sure of the three points and celebrations were in order after the game.

Second to seventh are separated by just four points as the battle continues to finish as high as possible in the bottom league, with some crucial fixtures coming in the next few weeks.

Brize Norton Reserves are still in with an outside chance of jumping into the top two after emerging victorious out of a five goal thriller versus Milton Reserves. Lewis Reeve Smith and Martin Kraus scored for fifth placed Milton but Brize went one better thanks to Ciaran Clarke and Chris Greenaway’s double. Brize are sixth, just three points off second placed Kingham Reserves with two games to go. They face fourth placed Stonesfield Reserves in their next fixture.

Wootton Reserves continued their fine form as they won their fifth league game in a row to leap into third position in Division Four. Jacob Cooke and Simon Stokes (2) grabbed the goals in the 3-0 victory against Bampton United Reserves, a victory which puts them level on points with second placed Kingham.

Their season will come to a dramatic close as their final two league games see them face off against new champions Chadlington Reserves and then a final game against fellow top four side, Stonesfield Reserves.

Witney & District Football Reports – Week 16

 By Ant Barlow

Written by David Evans

Post-Christmas chaos creates results carnage in first week back!
Welcome back.

In the first week back from the Christmas break, the form book was turned on its head in some of the leagues as teams recovered from their extended time off over the festive period. Three of the five pre-Christmas league leaders played and two of them lost, whilst two sides rooted to the bottom of their respective divisions came away with victories against high flying opposition. As if that wasn’t enough, we have two new league leaders as well.

Ready…. here we go!

Premier Division
Whilst in the top division results may have been said to go in line with the form book at least, there are now just two points separating the top three sides and new league leaders too. Charlbury have reached the summit, thanks to the absence of a game for Aston. They managed four different goal scorers as they put four past second bottom Kirtlington. Warwick Tompkins, Craig McCallum, Josh Hunt and Steve Fitzgerald all helped Charlbury come away with the three points. Ross Gray and Sam Fowler responded for Kirtlington as it finished 4-2.

FC Hollybush remain in hot pursuit as they defeated Minster Lovell. Johnny Fletcher scored for Minster Lovell but Chris Hirons Dan Bishop and Dan Brearley all scored one each in their 3-1 win.

Hailey jumped three league places into fourth as they defeated Carterton Town A. Two goals each for Tom Gregory and Jack Wood took all three points for Hailey. John Sword responded for Carterton Town.

Division One
Witney Royals would have known that victories were critical to maintaining their Division One status but seeing as top of the table Moreton Rangers were the first visitors to Burwell Meadow in 2019, it certainly wouldn’t have been expected that Royals would pick up their first win of the season. But that they did as David Cross’ double was enough to secure all three points. Josh Burford replied but Moreton suffered their third defeat of the season.

Stonesfield took full advantage of Moreton’s slip by hitting the net six times to regain their league leader’s status. Sam Bodinham and James Little both scored twice to get Stonesfield well on the way. Reece Bayliss and Peter Searle scored one each to complete the scoring for the away side. Chris Adams, Jason Blackman and John Ayres scored one each to make it 6-3 at full time.

Middle Barton joined the promotion fight by coming away with a narrow 1-0 win over Combe. A Dan Taylor own goal was enough to separate the teams. Middle Barton are now just three points off Moreton Ranger and have two games in hand.

Levi Steele and Jim Littlewood both scored one each as Milton won out in the mid-table battle with Bourton Rovers. Lee Mosson replied for Bourton but Milton won 2-1, keeping them within touching distance of the promotion fight.

Division Two
Whilst there were only three games in Division Two, there were still 21 goals, and three victories by no more than a goal in each game.

Aston Reserves and Kingham played out a 9 goal thriller as Aston picked up only their second win of the season. A Gaz Price hat-trick wasn’t enough for Kingham as they looked to keep themselves in the promotion scrap. Dan Davies even added a fourth but goals from Jamie Austin, Matt Brown, an unknown goal scorer and a Dave Rabbich double gave Aston a deserved three points.

Minster Lovell Reserves missed out on the opportunity to go top as they slipped to defeat against Ducklington. Russel Whitlock, Josh White and Luke Hessey all scored once for Minster but two penalties, converted by Ed Smith and Josh Hartley respectively along with goals from Ady Kew and Harvey Butler gave Duck all three points and sent them fifth.

Siege FC closed the gap on the three sides above them as they beat Brize in another tight game. They won 3-2 as Ben Brown and John White scored for Brize. But a Gerard Morgan double and a Karl Dodds effort gave Siege all three points.

Division Three
Bletchington Reserves continued with their good form since consolidating their teams into one. Their 2-1 victory over Hook Norton allowed them to leapfrog their opponents into fourth place. Jay Mair scored for Hook Norton but Jonathan Watts and Richie Wells’ goals took home the three points for Bletch.

Promotion chasing Carterton Town B and Spartan Reserves both managed to keep clean sheets, and score a few goals of their own as they kept their title pursuits well on track. Spartan beat Chipping Norton Town Reserves 5-0 thanks to goals from Donny Henderson Sowerby and doubles from Arrun White and Gavin Kominek. Spartan are only behind FC Mills on goal difference now and with a game in hand.

Carterton went one better as they beat Witney Royals 6-0. Tyler Webster, Phil Stannard, Ben Powell, Matt Mills, Danny Haining and Dan Chillington all scored one each to give them a five point cushion at the top of the league.

Division Four
Second bottom Spartan Rangers A managed to stun league leaders Stonesfield Reserves by recording their second away win of the year. Mev Gundem recorded a brace and was assisted on the scoresheet by James Phillips and Matt Townsend. Liam Harris replied for Stonesfield.

Kingham Reserves missed the chance to get within three points of the league leaders by dropping points away to Brize Reserves. Darren Light and Ross Parker scored for Brize but they were cancelled out by Darius Hodaei and Adrian Williams’ goals as it finished 2-2.

Bampton United Reserves also dropped points in their 0-0 draw with Wootton Reserves. A victory would have sent them second but the point leaves them level on points with third place Milton and a point behind second placed Kingham Reserves.
Chadlington Reserves benefitted from the sides above them dropping points as they closed to within a point of second place with victory over Eynsham SSC Reserves.

Ellis Godin was the pick of the bunch with a hat-trick as jack Legg, Alfie Peachey and Matt Chadwick all got one each. Marcus Owsnett and Keiran Clarke replied for Eynsham but it finished 6-2 to the visitors.

FC Ascott won the Ascott derby for the second time this season with a 3-1 victory over FC Ascott Rangers. Jay Whelan, Jason Bufton and Gary O’Donovan all scored for FC Ascott. Steve Wilkes provided a consolation goal for Rangers.

Saturday 22nd December 2018 Written by David Evans

Hat-trick heroes help chasing pack keep touch.

Premier Division.
There were hat-trick heroes for both FC Hollybush and Charlbury as they bid to keep their title pushes on track.
For Charlbury, they faced a visit to bottom side Spartan Rangers, who once again showed their battling qualities in a tough fight against one of the top teams. Henry Clark, Donny Henderson-Sowerby and Steve Wright scored for Rangers but Charlbury found their groove thanks to a Stefan Lang hat-trick. Warwick Tompkins and Josh Hunt landed one each as the scoreline finished 5-3 to Charlbury and leaves the Premier Division very much in their hands due to games in hand.

Craig Mays and Jamie MacDonogh cancelled each other out with a hat-trick each for FC Hollybush and Carterton Rangers respectively. Hollybush pushed on with further goals from Mark Threlfall and Dan Brearley to give them the three points and ensure they are second going into 2019.

Aston lead the pack into 2019 after a tight victory over Carterton Town A. Alex Cade and Ryan Oliver both hit wonder strikes to give Aston the half-time lead. Town hit-back in the second half thanks to Greg Neath and despite continuous pressure couldn’t find an equaliser and it finished 2-1.

Hailey and Tower Hill played out a draw in the other game in the league. Jack Wood scored for Hailey but Sam Britnell scored for Tower Hill to ensure a share of the spoils.

Division One
Things in Division One are considerably tighter thanks to this weekend’s results. The top four are now just separated by 6 points but with games in hand for the chasing pack, everyone is still in with a chance of glory this season.

Middle Barton cemented themselves into fourth place with the biggest win of the weekend in Division One. Nathan Bott’s four timer got them well on the way in their 9-0 win over Eynsham SSC. Dan Bott and Harley Claydon scored a brace each and John Umney single goal completed the scoring for Middle Barton.

It was second vs third as Stonesfield visited Chadlington. The sides were level on points before the game and Stonesfield prevailed to send them three points clear in second place. Reece Bayliss and Raffy Rice scored one each to give the away side the three points. Jarvis Morley responded for Chadlington but it wasn’t enough as Chadlington stay third.

Moreton Rangers are only one point clear of Stonesfield after being held to a 2-2 draw away to Combe. Ethan Penny and Tom Millar scored for Combe but they were cancelled out by Dan Moore and Javan Nurse who scored for the league leaders to keep them top by the slenderest of margins.

Chris Laurence was the hat-trick hero for Bampton United as they returned to winning ways. They jumped Combe and Eynsham in the process as they beat Bourton Rovers. Jake Pritchard and Connor O’Shea scored the other goals as the scoreline finished 5-0.

Division Two

There five different goal scorers for Hailey Reserves in their victory over Brize Norton, as they reached the summit of Division Two at the weekend. Tom Evans, Bradley Snell, Mark Smith, Mark Edmunds and Reuben Wertheim all scored one each as Hailey ran out 5-1 winners. Caleb Thomas scoring Brize’s consolation.

Charlbury Town Reserves scored five for the third week in a row as they battled to victory in an eight goal thriller with Ducklington. Mitchell Faulkner was once again amongst the goal scorers as he grabbed a brace. Dom Hemmings scored two of his own and Mark Clifton added the fifth. They were run close as Ducklington scored through Sam Doherty and a George Townsend double but Charlbury keep hold of third place for the start of 2019.

Siege FC also remained consistent as they won 4-2 for the second week running, this time over Witney Wanderers. Telmo Fernandez and Omar Semlali scored for Wanderers, who were hoping to keep the pressure on the top two, but they were eventually beaten thanks to goals from Kev Lewis, Chris Souter and a Gerard Morgan brace. Siege managed to jump five league places in the process and are now fourth.

Division Three
It was a ten star performance from Carterton Town B as they secured top spot for the start of 2019. They visited an in-form Hook Norton side who were looking to carry on their own recent run of good form but facing the top side proved to be one step too far. Doubles for James Casey, Tyler Webster and Shay Lowthian got Carterton well on their way and goals from Dan Chillington, Dave Wanless, Peter Okerke and Phil Stannard meant Carterton hit double figures. Harry Prickett, James Ingham and Max Harris responded for Hook Norton but it finished 10-3 to the visitors.

FC Mills moved three points clear of Spartan Rangers Reserves in second place with an emphatic victory of their own as they thumped Tower Hill Reserves 6-0. Stu Cutts, Carlos Paiva, Jon Roome and Aaron French (2) gave Mills all three points and leave Tower Hill in the bottom two.

An Ollie Sammons hat-trick helped Bourton Rovers Reserves defeat bottom side Witney Royals Reserves and jump two places up the league in the process. A Dan Joynes brace and a single goal for Liam Williams helped Bourton reach six. Jamie Kennedy, Rob DeBanks and Ollie Nolan responded for Royals but Bourton were able to jump Tower Hill and Chipping Norton into seventh place.
Chippin Norton and Wootton’s fixture fell to the weather conditions.

Division Four
Kieran Colley’s hat-trick gave Bampton the spoils in a 9 goal thriller to throw Bampton United Reserves right into the promotion mix as 2018 drew to a close. Tom Merchant, Daniel Jeffrey and a Jack Costa brace meant that Spartan Rangers A gave it their all in battling for the three points but a Steven Allery brace gave Bampton the points and leaves them just one point behind Milton Reserves but with 2 games in hand.

Kingham Reserves also put themselves into the picture with victory over top side Stonesfield Reserves. They scored five to bounce back from two defeats in a row in December as Dan lay and Liam Barnes both scored twice with Shane Cooper adding a fifth. Liam Harris, Chay Fisher and James Ryan scored one each for Stonesfield but it wasn’t enough to get anything from the game. Stonesfield remain top but having played more games than 3 of the chasing pack. Kingham are level on points with second placed Milton but have played one game less.

Eynsham SSC Reserves aren’t out of it either, finding themselves just 3 points off second placed Milton after victory over FC Ascott. Brook Jones had scored twice for FC Ascott but Marcus Owsnett scored a brace of his own for Eynsham and Shaun Rowbotham scored the decisive goal to keep Eynsham sixth.
