Larks ease to win

Paulton gave a Southern League debut to 17 year old youth team player Ali Sen and he was involved in several moves in the. Early stages.

Larkhall had an early shot saved by Rovers keeper Adam Forster then on 13 minutes Yeovil loanee Nev Nzembela appeared to be pushed in the penalty area by a combination of home keeper Shaun Semmens and defender Mike Baker but the referee waived play on. Larks broke and Wayne Nderemani's cross was chested down by Lewis Powell and Geraint Bater drove the ball home.

The home defence were on top with Baker and the outstanding Josh Jones cutting out attempts to set up the hard working Nzembela.

Twice from corners captain Charlie Hitchings headed side from Ben Withey corners as Rovers attempted to level the scores.

However on 53 minutes it was 2-0 as Bater's left wing corner was touched home by Baker from short range.

Despite the lead Forster was rarely tested and Paulton shots on target were equally rare.

Larkhall increased the lead after 75 minutes as Harry Hope broke down the right wing and cross for Powell to score.

Rovers pulled a goal back from the penalty spot as Withey was tripped and sub Jack Ball converted with Semmens guessing the right way.

In added time Paulton were denied a clear cut penalty as Baker tripped Nzembela with the referee inextricably showing the youngster a yellow card indicating simulation.

Next Saturday Paulton play their penultimate home game against Thatcham Town with 3-00 pm kick off.
