Bristol Manor Farm maintained their eight-point lead at the top of the Toolstation Western League Premier Division table with a 3-0 win at home to Bridport on Saturday.

In what was a comfortable victory for the hosts, they had the win wrapped-up before half-time thanks to goals from Ben Bament, Dean Stamp and Troy Simpson.

Buckland Athletic continued their winning run, following a 3-1 away win at bottom side Hallen.

It was Hallen who took a surprise lead in the 14th minute through Danny Webb, but Buckland were back on level terms 7 minutes later when Liam Drew scored an equaliser.

The home side had a chance to regain the lead from the spot, yet Buckland keeper Grant Fisher foiled Tom Collett and it proved to be a turning point as Buckland surged to victory with second half goals from Jared Lewington and Simon Laughton.

Another team who can’t stop winning are Street, and goals from Ross McErlain and Lewis Waldy helped them sneak past Bitton with a 2-1 win, while Matty Dawson scored the only goal of the game as Willand Rovers beat Gillingham Town 1-0.

Melksham Town’s barnstorming start to life at the Oakfields Stadium continued, as they demolished ten-man Clevedon Town 6-0 in front of another impressive crowd.

After 26 minutes, the visitors were reduced to ten-men when Glen Hayer was given his marching orders, and Melksham took advantage soon after with Mike Perrott heading home a Ben Thomson corner.

In the 6th minute of first half injury-time, Gary Higdon headed home to double the lead, before Sam Jordan got in on the act just before the hour-mark to make it 3-0.

Jordan and Higdon each added a further goal, with Joe Stradling also finding the back of the net as Melksham kept pace with their fellow promotion candidates.

Another team to enjoy a big win over a ten-man opposition were Bradford Town, as they beat Chipping Sodbury Town 5-0 at The Ridings.

Adama Missiato was the man sent from the field for the hosts, with Karim Rendall breaking the deadlock soon after for Bradford.

Just like Melksham, Bradford ran away with the game after the break, with second half goals coming from Rendall, Kane Simpson, Rickie Scott and Laurent Davis-Wilson.

Brislington claimed a 2-0 win away at Wells City, thanks to strikes from Jack Smyth and Mike Rimmer, while the game between Shepton Mallet and Odd Down ended in a goalless draw.

Sam Farthing and Jordan Fletcher scored for the home side during Sherborne Town’s 2-2 draw with Cribbs, while Longwell Green Sports defeated Cadbury Heath 2-0 at Shellards Road.
