Worle maintained their unbeaten run in the Somerset Premier league with a 4-2 win at home to Nailsea United.

The away team took the lead after 25 minutes and increased their lead from the penalty spot.

The game started differently when in the first 15 minutes Worle should have been at least two up when both Ryan Hodrien and Chris Taylor dragged their shots wide.

Worle however did get back into the game at the end of the first half when a cross from Jonny Parker was turned into the net by the onrushing Taylor.

Worle came out of the blocks in the second half quicker and were the dominant side limiting Nailsea United to a couple of breakaways.

Worle should have levelled when Tom Adams was upended in the box but the resulting penalty was saved by the impressive Nailsea United keeper who was outstanding throughout the match.

Worle brought on Callum Mcmanus chasing the game and this was instrumental in pushing Worle more forward. It was from a set piece that brought Worle level when Connor Down rose above the away defence and beat the keeper with a header.

A Nailsea breakaway was almost successful, but Worle took the lead when Duncan’s Hairdressers man of the match Taylor made no mistake from inside the 18-yard box.

Frazier Rendall came on in the last 15 minutes and this was the goal of the game when he waltzed through the Nailsea defence rounding the keeper before slotting the ball into the net to send Worle into an impressive second position in the early stages of the league.

Worle take on Clevedon United away on Saturday (3pm).

Yatton and Cleeve Utd 7

Wells City Res 1

This was a walk in the park for Yatton and Cleeve United against an inexperienced Wells side.

With 12 minutes played they were already two up, Samuel Morris scoring a brace, thanks to assists from James Bird and Clayton Matthews and increased their lead when Alexander Bird ran clear to score.

On the half-hour, the visitors pulled one back when Steven Borrett and Christopher Jones combined for Colin Jamieson to head home, but when Bird set up Morris to complete his hat-trick two minutes before the interval, it was all over bar the shouting.

Bird netted on 48 and 75 minutes to complete his hat-trick, while teammate Morris went one better, taping in his fourth and Yatton’s seventh, nine minutes from time.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Capille and Co Construction went to Samuel Morris.

This Saturday, Yatton and Cleeve United travel to Staplegrove in Division 1 of the Uhlsport County League. The match day travel and accessories have kindly been sponsored by Capille and Co Building Solutions.
