Woking A 1 Gloucester A 7

GLOUCESTER Schools took all four district sides to play Woking with the City teams winning three and losing one of the four games played.

Gloucester A moved up to second place in the Berkshire League following their big six-goal victory.

Drewett provided Douce with the opportunity to open the scoring from the edge of the box on 12 minutes before Collins played in Basford for number two.

Collins himself then drilled home from 18 yards, Drewett again the provider and a great move two minutes after the break involving Gilkes, Webb and Basford saw Jones – under pressure from Douce – unfortunately deflect Cronin's cross into his own net.

More fine approach play from the same players forced a left wing corner from which Basford converted before Phillips replied for the hosts.

A great finish from Cronin who converted Collins' left wing cross and a second for Collins who netted following Mace's set up completed the scoring for the city team who now sit two points behind league leaders St Albans.

Gloucester: Gardner-Medwin; Webb, Gilkes, Rigby Mitchell, Kyffin, Collins; Basford, Douce, Mace; Drewett, Cronin.

Woking B 1 Gloucester B 2

GLOUCESTER's B Squad moved up one place to fourth in the Geoff Richards League after edging out their Woking counterparts by the odd goal in three.

The excellent Martin played in leading scorer Priday to put the visitors ahead midway through the first half only for Marsden to equalise from the spot just before the break.

With Lawrence, Stubbs and Baron giving Woking little sight of goal during the second half it was left to Hatcher to receive a pass from Hopkins to execute a great finish and ensure Gloucester claimed all three points with 12 minutes remaining.

Gloucester B: Morrissey; Hatcher, Stubbs, Lawrence, Baron; Martin, Williams, Mckenzie, Harris, King, Priday. Subs: Tyndall, Hopkins.

Woking Under-10s 5 Gloucester U10s 3

GLOUCESTER's Development Squad staged a fine comeback after going four goals down to their Woking hosts.

Robson netted from long range to reduce the arrears before capitalising on a fine pass from debutant Bevan to net his second of the game.

Scherrer added a fifth for Woking but there was still time for Bevan to notch Gloucester's third after good approach play from Balkwill and Wintle.

Gloucester Under-10s: Valder-Samson; Cronshaw, Balkwill, Wintle, Halford, Whitfield, Robson, Griffiths, Bevan, Jeremiah, Gallifent, Martin.

Woking Girls 1 Gloucester Girls 2

GLOUCESTER's Girls' squad came out on top by the odd goal in three after a close encounter.

Cale and Greenwood linked up well to play in Beck-Esson in the 12th minute to put the visitors ahead, but Ross levelled for Woking before the break.

Fine defending from Hayward and Hawkins and some solid goalkeeping from Hornby kept the hosts at bay before Jones and Hawkins combined well to set up Cale who rifled in the winner with four minutes remaining.

Gloucester Girls: Hornby; Hayward, Hawkins, Greenwood, Harris, Jones, Wildin, Cale, Beck-Esson.
