Sidbury United climbed into joint third spot in the Fresha League Premier Division table after a 4-1 Byes Lane win over Chard Town Reserves.

United had trailed to an early goal from the Somerset side, but once level, never looked back and went on to win in some comfort.

Danny Green bagged a brace and there were also goals from Dan Gale and Ben Farrington, the latter scoring from the penalty spot, netting for the third successive game.

It leaves United level with Feniton on 22 points with the Acland Park side sitting third by virtue of a better goal difference.

Byes Lane boss Jeremy Schofield can be very pleased with his side’s efforts at Christmas. To have reached the festivities in third spot is testament to the hard work put in at the club in the close season.

They complete their 2104 fixtures with Saturday’s trip to Beer Albion. January sees United in action five times and each time on Fresha duty, though much of it will be spent at their home ground for they play four successive home matches to start 2015!

They begin with the January 3 visit of Thorverton and then entertain Elmore before locking horns once more with the one of the two sides to beat them this term – Heavitree United (January 17). They then host Beer before completing the first month with a trip into Exeter to meet University.
