Back on home turf, Warminster Town were looking to get back to winning ways, following a draw last week and a league defeat before. In front of another good crowd of 144, Warminster put on a good show and produced a 3-0 win over Almondsbury FC.
Almondsbury set off at a quick pace and looked dangerous, particularly on the counter-attack. Warminster battled through those opening minutes and in the 22nd Martin Johnson opened the scoring from a corner taken by Ian Jeffery. Just in front of the goal, Johnson reacted and got the ball safely over the goal-line.
Not to be outdone George Butler doubled the tally (34) heading the ball down from an Ian Jeffery free-kick. Warminster at this point in the game now firmly in the driving seat. Almondsbury went close to pulling one back when a shot hit the post, and the rebound fired over the crossbar. Halftime 2-0.
Less than 3 minutes into the second-half Johnson made it a brace with a superbly placed left-footed shot from just outside the box into the right corner of the net. The ball came through to him after a pass aimed towards the ever hard-working Francois Allen was intercepted and landed perfectly at Johnson’s feet.
The home side remained in control and had several other chances to increase their tally during the half. To their credit, Almondsbury worked hard to try to get something from this game, but Warminster proved to be the stronger side. It was yet another entertaining game of football at Weymouth Street and an endorsement for the Toolstation Western League.
