DRIMPTON maintained their 100 per cent start to the Perry Street & District League Division Three season with an emphatic 7-1 win over Chard Rangers Reserves at Jocelyn Park.

From the first whistle the Greens pressed forward with some controlled football and it did not take long for them to open the scoring against a side who had lost their manager 24 hours before kick-off.

On 20 minutes some good football led to a great pass to John Kingston who slotted home confidently under the keeper.

Five minutes later it was 2-0 when a corner was met by Pawel Cieresko with a towering header that flew in the top corner.

Drimpton were relentless at this stage and gave the home side no time on the ball. A third goal was added by Frank Symonds with another good finish.

Striker Tim Hussey also got on the scoresheet just before half-time with a strong finish.

The second half was only a minute old when Drimpton made it 5-0, Symonds bagging his second of the game.

Chard had a bit more of the ball after the fifth as the Greens took their foot off the gas but never caused any problems.

Drimpton then regained more of the ball and Hussey grabbed his second of the game.

Kingston turned provider for Tom Franklin as Drimpton led 7-0 before Chard hit a consolation with the final kick of the game.

Drimpton boss Andy Loudon said:” We totally dominated the opening 45 minutes and in a way I was a bit disappointed it was only four goals.

“It was a strong team performance and the score-line could of been higher at the end. It keeps our 100 per cent record going and we move on to Ilminster which will be our toughest test yet.”
