Learn something new every week


Corsham town started the game very brightly and came out of the blocks quickly, a great save in the first 5 minutes from George Shanks Boon kept the sides at 0-0 it didn’t seem to wake Portishead up and then after 22 minutes a neat one two and a through ball left Shanks Boon with a one on one and the Corsham player slotted home from 10 yards into the bottom right hand corner. Corsham continues to dominate and on 26 minutes doubled their lead when a wonder strike from all of 30 yards on a half volley went straight into the top corner and left Shanks Boon without a chance. It was only then Portishead came to life and a quickly worked corner out wide between Louis Elliot and Jordan Thaws then the ball getting whipped in and skipper Mitch Osmond heading home to pull one back for Portishead. It brought Portishead to life and Corsham has a game on their hands. The sides went in 2-1 at half time but Portishead came back out the brighter with chances from Paddy Royal and Eljay Manfini. The game then started to become a bruiser with both sides taking bookings as both sides fought hard Corsham to hold onto their win and Portishead to salvage something from the game. With time running out Nathan Trueman has a long range effort saved by the keeper and that was it. Corsham ran out 2-1 winners. Assistant manager Dave Hewitt said “ We have a lot of young lads out there and they will learn something new every week today was another lesson learned. We have another big game at home next week against Bristol Telephones so we pick ourselves up and go again.”
