Chippenham League: Miller Sports clinch trophy upset
After being tipped to do well in this season’s Westernsport Trophies-sponsored WG Parr Trophy, First division Prestige Bodyworks probably saw it as the kiss of death but they would have expected to get past second division Miller Sports in their preliminary round clash, but after taking a two goal lead, Prestige surrendered their advantage as Miller turned the game on it’s head to claim one of the results of the day with a 3-2 victory.
Jamie Treweke’s double put Prestige two up, Miller dug deep and helped by the impressive Scott Boyd they got back on level terms thanks with Boyd scoring twice. Boyd then turned provider for their third and winning goal, a perfect cross to the back post was met by James Webb who headed in for his first of the season to make it 3-2 at half time. Prestige pressed and pressed for most of the second half but some excellent defending kept them at bay and Miller came away with the result and a place in the next round.
Four goals in each half saw Third division Bremhill View Boys avoid a potential banana skin at home to fourth division outfit Old Road who were unable to take their fine league form into the game as they were beaten 8-0. Rory Worthington, Aaron Gardiner, Jack Taylor and Caner Ozkaya scored in the first half. A second from Taylor and Worthington plus goals from Luke DeBoer and Leigh Maidment completed the rout.
Third division Corsham Park Rangers almost produced the result of the day, trailing 4-0 at the break to division one outfit, North Star A they clawed back their four goal deficit only to lose out in the final minute as Star’s late strike earned them a thrilling 5-4 win. Paul Green, Karl Sharratt and a double from Jamie-Lloyd Davies gave Star their half time lead. Kadir Ayhan, Kane Kauppinen, Matthew Spear and Jordan Coulter got Rangers back on level terms before Davies scored the 89th minute for North Star.
