Another GFA league session saw our over 50s return with 3 wins and a solitary defeat to stay in contention near the top of the league.

Our first game saw us beat Wiltshire 1-0, Paddy with an excellent strike from a tight angle.

We had numerous chances to extend our lead but failed to convert any.

This victory was followed by a 5-1 demolition against Quedgeley, Paul Watling grabbed himself a hat-trick, with Steve King and Steve York also adding to our tally.

Our only defeat came against reigning champions Weston where we lost 2-0.

The final game of the day saw us up against Chippenham who had proved tricky opposition at the Christmas cup.

However this time round an early goal gave us the imputus and we ended up with a decent 4-0 win.


Highworth Town took 2 over 60s teams to Brimscombe today for a 12 team tournament organised by Inside football.

The 1st Highworth Team; led by Phil Leslie, were undefeated with a win and two draws but narrowly failed to qualify.

The 2nd Highworth team did slightly better with a 2-2 draw against Cirencester and wins versus Wiltshire Walking Football FC 1-0 and Phoenix Blue 4-1.

Good fortune continued with a semi-final win 4-2 on penalties, Steve Pope making two excellent saves.

The final against Clevedon was sadly not quite such a tight affair with Clevedon winning by an impressive 4-0 scoreline.

Special mention to Steve Richards and Cyril Knox who both made fine debuts.
