Great start to Justin Flowers Western LG managerial career with a hard fought win against a decent Welton outfit. , cagey start by both teams but it was the hosts who carried the main threat going forward though goalkeeper Mark Billingsley was largely untroubled behind a back four well marshalled by Zac Costello , nearest Corsham came to troubling Welton keeper Tom Drewitt was an audacious 40 yard lob from Lewis McCarron that had him scrambling frantically back towards his goal.

2nd 45 followed pretty much the same pattern though Drewitt had to get down smartly to save a McCarron drive and then tipped a Daniel King shot onto the post , the introduction of substitutes Alex Hillier and Ash Barnett gave us a little more impetus and it was a Barnett pass on 74 minutes that set up King only for his mazy run to be ended by a lazy lunge from a Welton defender right on the edge of the penalty area , from the resulting free kick King drove an unstoppable left footed drive beyond the despairing hand of Drewitt into the bottom corner of the Welton net , we saw out the final 16 or so minutes fairly comfortably to give us a great 3 points against a side who I am sure will once again be up around the top 5 or 6 sides in the division , great hospitality as usual and the Referee did well to keep the cards in his pocket all afternoon in what was certainly a keenly contested 90 minutes
