It was another fascinating afternoon of football for our top local sides.

In the Southern League Premier, high flying Weymouth headed to Wales to take on struggling Merthyr Town. Harry Baker put the Terras ahead in the first half, before Josh Carmichael and Brandon Goodship both scored in the second half, with the final score 3-0 to Weymouth.

Dorchester were looking to pull away from the wrong end of the table as they entertained Kings Langley at The Avenue. Tom Blair put them in front with the only goal of the game, as it finished 1-0.

In the Wessex League Premier, it was due to be a special afternoon for Portland United as it was to have been the first match back in charge of the Islanders for Gary Bailey. However he'll have to wait a little longer as the game was postponed due to a water-logged pitch.

Bridport were in Western League action, and they travelled to Hengrove Athletic. Mark Salter scored first, before the home side scored two in quick succesion. An own goal then made it level at half-time, before Hengrove took the lead again after the break to win 3-2.

In rugby and Bridport were thumped 65-0 by Dorset Dockers.
