Old Sodbury Boys FC continued their bright start to the season with a high scoring run of victories in November.

A visit to Stoke Lane Panthers resulted in a club record 14-0 victory, with free scoring Ross Womack being the Panthers chief tormenter continuing his excellent start to the season with yet another five-goal haul. 

Womack almost repeated the feat at home to highflying AEK Boco Colts with a personal tally of four, ably assisted by Robbie Foxwell who bagged a hat trick in a fine 13-3 victory on a heavy home pitch. Foxwell replicated his achievement the following week as his team secured a fine 8-3 victory in wintry conditions at Downend Saints Colts.

With maximum points from their opening eight matches Old Sodbury’s success has very much been a team effort. Womack and Foxwell have been finding the net in every game but other players have also contributed with Ethan Lloyd in fine form on 10 goals for the season and fellow winger Miles Theobald up to seven. Callum Heaphy’s move from defence to attack has so far yielded four goals; Dan Watson has dispatched two thumping penalties and Tyler Dervishi and Josh Pearce have one goal apiece. Dan Liddiatt, after a fine debut season last year scored his first goal for the club.

A tough run of fixtures during December and January will determine if Old Sodbury can navigate their way through to promotion and the league title.
