In pictures: Hughes brace helps Chalford sink Dursley


Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Division One

Chalford AFC 2 Dursley Town 0

Prolific Chalford striker Jack Hughes fired a double as Ben Powell’s side rubber-stamped their Gloucestershire Northern Senior League title hopes.

Hughes made it 35 goals for the season, the Chalford hot-shot netting in each half, underpinning their ambition to stage County League football at Highfield Way next season.

A delighted Chalford boss Ben Powell said: “It was a good three points against a good Dursley side, we started slow and had to feel our way into the game, but once Jack (Hughes) got the first we looked much more settled and controlled the second half well.”

Dursley boss Karl Nash felt it wasn’t his side’s day: “It was fairly contested match.

“We started the brighter of the two teams, couldn’t quite find the quality in the final third and Chalford grew into the game, the main man (Hughes) ripped one in midway through the first half, and we failed to clear our lines in the second half, and he poked one home. My boys didn’t give up, but it just wasn’t our day.”

Earlier, Hughes opened his account with a fizzing finish and grabbed a second after Ryan Harry’s header was saved.

Chalford are now just two points behind leaders Longlevens Reserves with six games in hand on the Gloucester outfit. Meanwhile, Karl Nash’s Dursley remain third
