The current season has been extended to Thurs 3rd May 2018
Headlines & Highlights Update
19-April - Kingswood Res managed to sneak a must win result against local rivals Wotton. In a high octane game a second half Toop toe-poke has
given Kingswood an outside chance of catching their neighbours in the battle to avoid relegation.
In Div-5, Berkeley Res also hosted local rivals in Charfield Res, who came away with the points and go second in the table. Charfield now play Stroud Harriers Res on Saturday to make it 6 games in 15 days as they play fixture catch-up.
Cotswold Rangers Res agonisingly lost out in their County Cup Final to Cheltenham-based Prestbury Res at Slimbridge AFC. Cotswold scored
first, and last, and had a golden chance to win the game in the 87th minute. With the scores tied at 2-2 after 98 mins, both teams had chances to win the penalty shoot-out. Eventually, Prestbury won
it with the 22nd penalty to take the Primary cup.
Cotswold have two more bites at glory over the next week starting with a virtual Div-7 decider vs Tuffley 5ths on Saturday and a Charity Cup final on Tuesday against Kingsway Res.
18-April - Frampton Res pulled level with Barnwood after a fine 1-4 win at Hardwicke Res. Frampton's game in hand will play out on Saturday when they travel to in-form Randwick, while Barnwood have no game. Charfield and Stonehouse Res played out a 0-0 draw. There's a big game tonight at the bottom as Kingswood Res host Wotton in a replayed fixture. A good crowd is expected for the local derby and a Wotton win would send their neighbours down.
Four tight games in Div-2 tonight, Rodborough prevailed 4-3 in a tricky looking fixture vs Quedgeley Res. The result takes them level again with Longlevens 3rds, behind on goal difference. Cam Res and Trident both had single goal away wins, whilst Tibberton and Bush shared the spoils in Newent.
In Div-3 Chalford Res go top, but a 2-2 home draw with Tetbury Res means that things stay tight at the top. All four contenders are in action on Saturday, with Upton StL's fixture looking the trickiest of them all.
Tredworth Res remain undefeated after another comfortable win. Two local derbies and a Charity Cup Final to go for the Tigers. Wickwar cemented their 3rd place with a tight win over Alkerton, gaining revenge for a similar result earlier in the season at Eastington.
In Five, Stroud Harriers managed to get their pitch repaired in time to beat Longlevens 4ths. The result keeps them interested in a top 4 finish. Longford Res picked up a credible draw at home to in-form Kings Stanley Res.
Kingsway Res strolled past Stroud United Res whilst Eastcombe Res picked up a rare away win over Sharpness 3rds.
17-April - A return to the overcast weather again and more surprise results.
Kings Stanley continue their usual late run in Div-1 with a comprehensive win at Old Richians.
Longlevens 3rds won at local rivals Longford and are 2 points away from automatic promotion, with 2 games to go.
The eratic form of teams at the top of Div-3 continues as Upton StL Res were expected to take the points at struggling Whitminster, but Whit caused a shock winning 2-0. Taverners Res bounced back from the weekend with a vital 5-0 win at home to Uley. Four teams, two promotion spots, who knows who will prevail. At the bottom, Quedgeley 3rds opened up a big gap in the fight to avoid the drop with a win at McCadam. McCadam now look likely to join Cotswold Rangers who become the latest team to be relegated.
In Div-5, Stonehouse need a single point to be promoted, despite losing 5-3 to fellow title contenders Charfield Res. Chalford 3rds
inability to beat Randwick Res now sees them as outsiders in the hunt for the top two places. Randwicks point, coupled with Leonard Stanley Res losing the night before means that the two games that
these two teams have to play against each other will probably decide who stays up.
Minch Res won a tight affair at Gloster Rovers and now lie level on points with Kingsway Res. Both teams will be looking to cement the next place outside automatic promotion, just in case more than two go up.
Horsley Res' loss tonight confirms their relegation from Div-6 although must be applauded for getting through the season without pulling out of a single fixture, despite pre-seasons concerns of the future of the Club and their two teams.
- Cotswold Rangers - relegated from Division Three
- Horsley United Res - relegated from Division Six
14-April - The biggest highlight today was the sun ... welcome back!
The top two in Div-1 met with Barnwood winning the honours and making the League title surely a two-horse race now. Frampton Res had an impressive 1-7 win at bottom of the table Kingswood Res.
All eyes will now be looking forward to a potential title decider on 28-April as Frampton host Barnwood, although both teams have a few interesting fixtures over the next two weeks.
In Div-2, Rodborough won and drew level again with Longlevens 3rds. Three games left for both teams with Levens holding the advantage on
Longford's loss at Minch today condemned them to Div-3 football next season, their 3rd successive relegation, but there are signs that they will be much more competetive next season.
Div-3 has become incredibly tight over the past month or so, 4 teams still appear to be in with a chance of promotion, but todays 5-0 win by Ramblers over Taveners Res may have made the Nailsworth outfit the outsiders in the equation. Chalford Res and USL Res both had comfortable away wins to keep the pressure up on Ramblers. At the other end, Cotswold are now just one result away from a relegation season, in stark contrast to their Div-7 Reserve team who are one result away from being promoted and two cup finals to look forward to over the next 10 days.
Div-4 is already done and dusted, Tredworth Res secured the title win today while Kingsway have already secured the other promotion spot. At the other end, Dursley Res have joined Abbeymead Res in dropping out of the division. Tuffley 4ths battled for their second 0-0 draw in successive games, quite an unusual feat at this level of football.
Settling Div-5 may only occur in the last few days of the season. Stonehouse 3rds didnt have a game, but had a good day as Chalford 3rds and Charfield Res failed to win three points, with Charfield losing to relegation threatened Randwick Res.
Bridgeway inched to the second promotion spot in Div-6 with a walkover win due to Eastcombe Res not being able to field a team. Kingsway Res won a 10-goal thriller at Sharpness 3rds who have improved significantly over the past few months. Minch Res continue to hang onto Kingsway's coat-tails after cruising to a big win at Horsley Res.
In Div-7 Cotswold Res racked up another bumper win as they hunt down Tuffley 5ths. Two big wins in a row suddenly see them 3 points behind Tuffley with a game in hand, but now only 2 goals behind on goal difference. It's going to be a crucial 7 days for Cotswold as they play two cup finals in the next two midweeks and next Saturday they host Tuffley in a probale winner takes all for the Div-7 title.
Cashes Green still lie in wait just in case Cotswold blow up, and had a hard fought win over Cam Everside today.
