DRIMPTON returned to Perry Street & District League Division Two action with an emphatic 11-2 victory over Crewkerne Rangers Reserves.

Before the game a minute's silence was observed to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice at war.

Drimpton wasted no time in getting on the score sheet as three quick goals decided the outcome of the game in the first 12 minutes. Numerous chances were created, with a combination of the Crewkerne goalkeeper and the woodwork keeping the scoreline down.

However, another two quickfire goals meant the half-time score was 5-0.

The second half continued in the same pattern with Drimpton camped in the Crewkerne half.

The Greens were cutting their opposition open with quick passing and great running off the ball. A further six goals were added before the full-time whistle.

John Kingston and Frank Symonds both hit braces, while there were also two own goals.

Other scorers for the Greens were Josh Cousins, Tim Hussey, Adam Cody Boucher, Adam Chant and Pawel Ciereszko, while Steven Dunkerton and Ethan Swinnerton replied for Rangers.

Manager Andy Loudon was full of praise for the "outstanding" Greens.

He told the Bridport News: "We were all disappointed with the performance last week in the Dorset Cup and I know the lads wanted to put that right.

"Crewkerne were the unfortunate team that faced the backlash. Some of our football was outstanding, I was pleased with how quickly we moved the ball.

"We could and maybe should (have) scored 20, their keeper made some quality saves and we hit the woodwork at least four times.

"Very solid performance and we look forward to the clash with Charmouth next week."

Drimpton, who lead Charmouth by two points, travel to Barrs Lane to face their title rivals on Saturday (2.30pm).
