Match Day Round Up
In the top of the table clash Merley beat 10 men Rec by a late single goal scored with a Sports' sub's 1st touch. Rec had Alex Grimason sent off for a "dangerous" tackle and in the following melee, one from each bench were also dismissed. Elsewhere Portland repeated their result from last week, beating hosts Bridport again, this time 1-0, whilst Weymouth defeated visitors Mere by a similar score. Swanage's good run continues as they drew with Blandford 2-2 and Holt beat visitors Parley 3-1. Wareham were held by visitors Sherborne 1-1 and Tintinhull beat their visitors Shaftesbury 1-0.
Cranborne v Ham U was postponed due to Hamworthy being unable to raise a team.
Merley Cobham Sports
Today, the League learned that MCS Commitee member, Eric Cherrett had earlier this week been taken very ill and is currently in hospital, where he is recovering, we wish Eric a speedy recovery.
Match Day Round Up
Mere Town's Scott Martin breaks the league's individual scoring record by putting in all 8 in Mere's 8-1 win at Ham U - unless anyone out there knows differently (please let me know).
Merley were surprisingly held at home by Cranborne 2-2 while Blandford lost to visitors Shaftesbury 3-1. Finally Wareham lost their local derby with Swanage 3-0.
Hamworthy Recreation v Sherborne Town Res and Poole Borough v Holt Utd were postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
A weakened Portland were still too good for hosts Bridport, winning 2-0 while in the other tie Tintinhull overcame visitors Parley 4-2.
The semi-final draw is:
Mere Town v Portland Utd
Tintinhull v Hamworthy Recreation

Match Day Roundup
Its great to report on a full fixture list (lucky Ham Rec were playing away!)
Ham Rec came out winners of the top of the table clash at Weymouth when they won with a solitary goal while Portland beat visitors Holt by the odd goal in 3. Meanwhile, Merley kept it tight at the top with a 7-1 thrashing of visitors Poole Boro. Mere (2-0 at home to Tintihull), Bridport (3-1 at Wareham) and Blandford (2-1 at home to Parley) have, at the moment, a mini battle for 5th place. Swanage won 2-0 at Cranborne while Sherborne beat visitors Ham U 4-1 to move away from the bottom 2.
