MANGOTSFIELD UTD RES 3

CHEDDAR 2

FOR 79 minutes, this game went to plan for Cheddar, but this only happened from the point at which Mangotsfield's young team had taken a three goal lead with just 11 minutes on the clock.

The opening goal of the game came after two minutes when a ball was given away by Tom Manning and the Mangotsfield winger gave Jim Milligan no chance.

Cheddar's defence was wide open again soon after and a mix up between Paul Whittaker and Milligan allowed the home striker to sneak between them and slot it home. It got worse for Cheddar when another defensive lapse saw a cross shot hit home.

Top scorer Adam Jones had the chance to pull a goal back but his shot smashed against the underside of the bar. Eventually Cheddar pulled a goal back as Jones again hit the woodwork, but this time the ball came back to Manning who netted.
