Comfortable Win Takes 'Field Top


Returning to action after a six week break Mangotsfield United's Youth Team ran out convincing winners at The Recreation Ground to reclaim top spot.

Mangotsfield made a bright start opening up a two goal lead inside ten minutes. The first goal came after Luke Palmer's cross was finished by Danny Carter.

A fine solo goal saw Jack Withey run through the Bitton rearguard to double Mangotsfield's early lead. A third followed on the half hour after a surging run from Aysa Corrick was ended but with the loose ball breaking to Danny Carter he drilled the ball home from twenty five yards for his second of the night.

Just after half time Tom Shopland burst into the penalty area where he was upended. From the resultant penalty Danny Carter completed his hat trick.

Bitton scored a consolation goal with five minutes remaining.
