The Bath & Dis­trict League’s Stan Mil­som Cup got off to a flier, with Dribuild even­tu­ally run­ning out 8-5 win­ners over Ro­man Bath­elona in an as­ton­ish­ing tie at Lans­down. Dribuild had beaten the same op­po­nents com­fort­ably a week ear­lier, but were made to work hard, par­tic­u­larly hav­ing trailed when Mi­lan Kuzma di­rected the ball home via a shoul­der. Sam Black, Gary Ki­pling and Ryan Small had the hosts 3-1 up by the break, but Bath­elona re­fused to lie down. They fell 4-2 and 5-3 be­hind with Aaron Childs scor­ing twice, but Dar­ren Chitty and Mar­ian Cali­noiu’s su­perb strike in the clos­ing stages forced ex­tra-time. Riou Bog­dan had pre­vi­ously fired in a brace for the stripes. Hav­ing used up so much en­ergy to pro­duce the come­back, Dribuild eased through in the ex­tra half hour, which saw Small add an­other and Childs two more, giv­ing him a four-goal haul. Di­vi­sion 3 out­fit Lans­down caused an up­set against Di­vi­sion 2’s A Lit­tle Dif­fer­ent. De­spite go­ing a goal down, Mark Wroe (2), Ai­dan Mc­caf­fery, Mar­cus Chap­man and an own goal turned the match on its head and earned them a place in round two. Olympic Vic­to­ria needed a late penalty to edge past Bear Flat in the same com­pe­ti­tion. In Di­vi­sion 1, GT recorded a 2-0 win over FC Bath United. Jake Turpin and Brad Nor­ris net­ted in their fourth league win from four. Odd Down went goal crazy at Tims­bury, heap­ing fur­ther mis­ery on Team Nathan. A 13-1 win, with Lee Burns rolling back the years with five in the rout, made it 24 goals for Down in two meet­ings against the newly-pro­moted men, who saw Jimmy Webb grab a con­so­la­tion. In Di­vi­sion 2, three teams are tied at the top on nine points. AFC BAS held out against Claver­ton Park. They led 2-0 through Dan Mar­riott and Danny Wil­liamson’s penalty but were made to sweat when Kay­lum Es­cott pulled one back late on. Rad­stock had goal­keeper Con­nor White to thank for a string of fine saves against Tramways. Goals at the other end from Curt Dunn, Char­lie Myrie and Dayne D’alle­san­dro gave Ma­son Bid­good’s side the points. FC Trin­ity came out on top in a 12-goal thriller against Grif­fin and West­wood. Tom Lake­man and Petru Cabuz both hit braces in Wilt­shire. FC Estrella’s 100 per cent start was ended against Far­ring­ton. Hav­ing led 3-1, Ar­ron Whit­tock popped up with a late lev­eller to earn a point for Al­bion. Univer­sity side GLF Pan­thers got their cam­paign un­der­way with a 3-1 win at Wel­ton Rangers. Billy Belsham, Daniel Kwan and Johnny Khouri scored for the stu­dents and Jamie Knight net­ted for Wel­ton. ■ The Bath & Keyn­sham six-a-side Foot­ball League is look­ing for more teams for the Au­tum/win­ter 2018 sea­son which starts this Oc­to­ber. Games are played on Mon­days (Keyn­sham) and Wed­nes­days (Bath) in the evening and the league is af­fil­i­ated with to the FA. The league is open to all teams from the lo­cal com­mu­nity, with all stan­dards wel­come. It’s a great way to get fit or keep fit through­out the sea­son. All matches have FA ref­er­ees and on-site ad­min­is­tra­tors. They pro­vide all the foot­balls and bibs.
