A last-minute penalty save from Matthew Hill preserved a deserved share of the spoils for Graham Cheeseman’s men in this entertaining Premier Division clash.

The home side took a fifth minute lead when Christopher Taylor slotted home.

The hosts were dealt a blow minutes later though as experienced keeper Benjamin Dancey was forced off with a leg injury and Ryan Hodrien took over between the sticks.

The replacement stopper looked assured, but could do nothing about the equaliser on 36 minutes, Christopher Bradley firing home from just outside the box after good work by Louis Rouverais and Rory Thomas.

The second half saw Rouverais head a Thomas cross against the bar, while teammate George Martin fired straight at stand-in goalie Hodrien.

Worle retook the lead with Thomas Adams slotting home, but on 76 minutes it was all square again as Martin ran through to score.

It stayed that way until the 89th minute when Hill guessed correctly to keep out Taylor’s spot kick and earn his side a point.

The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill went to Matthew Hill.

This Saturday, Wrington Redhill travel to Westfield (3pm) in the Premier Division of the Uhlsport Somerset County League.
