NEWLY formed Sherborne Saints had a good start in Division Two of the Basingstoke and District Saturday League, beating another new club Somesay 7-1 at home.

Matt Livingston opened their account in the 10th minute after a pass from Lewis Judd.

Matt Kelly, late of Labour Club, added the second from a Dan Grimes corner and a first time shot from Ronnie Tamale made it 3-0.

Somesay replied with a goal, a volley from Connor Stratton.

Kelly headed on for Livingstone to make it 4-1 and a very unusual fifth goal when goalkeeper Jake Lear scored with 70 yard clearance kick.

Kelly made it six from a pass by Alex Izzo and then completed his hat trick after receiving a pass from Livingstone.

Chineham who finished bottom last season, looks to have a stronger squad and commenced with a 6-3 win over Origin Headley.

It was a hat-trick from Charlie Callahan that clinched the points.

Eugenio Domingue with a deflected shot in the 21st minute was followed by a Rickie Smith shot deflected in by Callahan and the next by Tim Manson gave them a three goal advantage.

Origin hit back before the break with a header from Bradley Hawkins and Luke Ambrose put away his chance.

Manson with a 25-yard shot and a second from Callahan put Chineham 5-2 up and Callahan scored his third after putting away a long ball from John Smith.

A looping shot from Simon Vosper was the only reply from Origin.

Newcomers Basingstoke Colts almost started with a win against Longdog Soldiers, with their star man Banjca-Marian Oprea scoring all four of their goals.

However, a late strike by Addie Mosdell, who nutmeg’s his man, netted the equaliser.

Terry Dingley, with two goals was Soldiers man of the match, equalising after Oprea gave them the lead after 15 minutes.

Max Trodd then put them in front a minute after the break, but Oprea came back with two goals before the Mosdell equaliser.

Basingstoke Athletic following being relegated won 4-2 against Twentyten Reserves.

They took a second minute lead through Dan Hancock after being set up by Franklin Spacagna.

Paul Walsh-Taylor had an outstanding game for Athletic, having a hand in most of their efforts.

The fourth goal for Athletic came from substitute Marcus Howard, from a swerving free kick.

Aaron Farmer was credited with the 90th minute goal for Twentyten.

AFC Berg ended up 6-3 winners against AFC Aldermaston A after leading 3-0 after two from Dan Deadman and an own goal.
