TOOLSTATION LEAGUE Odd Down made a winning return to Toolstation Premier Division action on Saturday with a 3-2 success over fellow mid-table side Ilfracombe Town at Combe Hay Lane.

The Downers climbed above local rivals Larkhall Athletic – beaten 2-1 at home by Radstock Town last Wednesday – and into eighth spot in the table thanks to strikes from Leigh Edwards-Samuels and Mark Wall, together with an own goal.

Terry Moore's side, who had not played in the Premier Division since losing to Melksham more than a month previously, visit Gillingham Town on Saturday.

Corsham Town collected their eighth win in 11 matches with a 2-1 victory at Almondsbury UWE in Division 1.

Dan King put Corsham ahead and Ross Lye added a second from the spot before Nick Holton was sent off. Simon McIlroy replied for Almondsbury.

Corsham, who are now just a point behind third-placed Shepton Mallet, host Cheddar on Saturday.

Bradford Town continued their prolific form with a 7-1 hammering of visiting Sherborne Town.

Sam Jordan struck twice and Josh Brigham, Jack Miluk, Matt Minnis, Nick Ridout and Nick Ross were also on the scoresheet for Bradford, who visit bottom side Shrewton United on Saturday.

All four goals came in the final 15 minutes at Keynsham Town, where the hosts ran out 3-1 winners over visiting Portishead Town.

Wayne Pearce and Rich Healey put Keynsham 2-0 up before James Clarke replied from the penalty spot on 90 minutes. There was still time, however, for Pearce to grab his second.

Keynsham visit high-flying Cribbs Friends Life on Saturday.
