Corsham Town 3 - 0 Portishead Town

Away | 06 October 2018 | Attendance: 43

Excellent 3 points, another clean sheet and 3 goals one of real quality from 17yo Ben Selman set the seal on a good days work.

Never really got going early on and in fairness to The Pandas they had probably more of the attacking play though without really troubling goal keeper Mark Billingsley and the back four again superbly marshalled by the imperious Zak Costello finally got going 10 minutes from half time when the hardworking Max Whittaker weaved his way into a shooting position only to see his effort blocked though unluckily for the Pandas defender the ball fell kindly for Jon Bazley to finish with ease , almost made it two when Daniel King saw his superb free kick thump the outside of the post with the keeper routed to the spot but with the last action of the first half it was two when Kings long throw was flicked on for Lewis McCarron to ghost in at the far post and finish comfortably.

Came out second half and once again didn’t really finish off Portishead who to their credit kept playing nice football though once again without much end product , made 2 changes with Ali Mayoh and Alex Pring replacing Alex Hillier and Adam Shipman but it was the 3rd change that finally saw off the Pandas with Ben Selman replacing the excellent Ben Wickens and within 2 minutes a clever one two with the outstanding Mcarron saw the young substitute burst clear hold off a defender and finish Messi like with the outside of his left foot for his first goal in senior football , saw out the game with ease and a massive well done to every player the 3 officials who largely went unnoticed and a Pandas outfit who never gave up and kept us honest all afternoon.
