Cheddar’s disappointing start to the season continued as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Wincanton Town.

The opening half of the game was evenly balanced, although the Cheese had the better of the opening 20 minutes of the game, but failed to impose their superiority.

The second half saw the visitors take an early control and only the brilliance of man of the match Liam Kingston in the Cheddar goal kept his side on level terms in the opening minutes.

Cheddar could have been overrun in the opening five minutes of the second half as Kingston again saved brilliantly to deny both Dan Wise and Marcus Cook.

Adam Jones then missed a comparatively easy looking opportunity and that proved costly as the only goal of the game came on 52 minutes as a corner kick was headed into his own net by Danny Griffiths.

Cheddar failed to respond to the challenge and was made worse as Robbi Maggs was red carded as he brushed aside the arms of Dan Wise on the centre circle following an unfair challenge.

The home side should have equalised in the final minute as an inch-perfect cross from Ricky Bennett found the head of substitute Anthony Cleave, but that chance went begging as he headed the ball into the arms of the Wincanton ‘keeper.

The next match for the first team will be at Ashton & Backwell on Tuesday (7.30pm), before Cheddar return to Bowdens Park for the FA Vase match with Radstock on September 9 (3pm).
