Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Round-up: Reg Davis Cup First Round Results

Even though there is a week before the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League properly kicks off, the 30 of the 32 sides got their first taste of competitive football of the campaign – with the First Round of the Reg Davis Cup. 

Two sides unfortunately didn’t get their tie played as Cam Bulldogs were unable to raise a side against Longlevens Reserves, so the latter were awarded a walk through into the next round.

In the games that did get played Abbeymead Rovers defeated Taverners 2-1, thanks to goals from Jack Ashmead and Daniel Webb.

The 2017/18 Division One Champions Charlton Rovers beat a spirited Barnwood United side at the Walls Club 3-1 to advance into round two.

Stonehouse Town Reserves and Staunton & Corse, two of Division Two’s newest sides both won away from home to go through – as they beat Bredon and Leonard Stanley respectively.

Another new side to the League, Andoversford, went down 3-1 away to the newly merged Smiths Barometrics, whilst Kings Stanley won 3-1 at Charfield to win in a fixture that saw the top two of last season’s Stroud League go head to head.
