Happy new year for footballers

Following a mid season dip in form Chipping Sodbury Town FC were not looking forward to some tough fixtures. However it appears that the Festive period has had no ill effects on the team who now sit in 10th place in the Toolstation Western Football League.

Following a mid season dip in form Chipping Sodbury Town FC were not looking forward to some tough fixtures.  However it appears that the Festive period has had no ill effects on the team who now sit in 10th place in the Toolstation Western Football League. 

A fine 2-0 home win against mid table but in form Bitton set the tone for some fine results over the Christmas period. Second half goals from Jake Thomas and Justin Bishop gave the home side a deserved 3 points. 

Fourth place Melksham Town hosted the Sods in the last game of 2017 and the away side came away with an unexpected victory. The only goal of the game scored by Alexander Cunningham a minute after half time. 

A narrow 1-0 loss at Bitton in the Gloucestershire Challenge Trophy in their next game did nothing to dampen the spirits and another away fixture against Odd Down (Bath) resulted in a win for Sodbury. Kye Simpson had put the home side a goal up after just 2 minutes but Sodbury’s George Box equalised on 15 minutes to leave the sides level at the break. Liam Pullen gave the visitors a 2-1 lead 20 minutes into the second half and Jake Thomas settled the tie on 85 minutes.
