Cheddar’s weekend result maintained their second position in the league table, as they were held to a goal-less draw at home to Hengrove Athletic.

The Cheesemen’s draw meant they have not conceded for the past three games, and their defensive qualities were much in evidence as twin centre-backs Sam King and Danny Griffiths were on top form.

Both man of the match Mark Armstrong and Tom Manning played exceptionally well for Cheddar in midfield, while striker Adam Jones played a lone role up front.

Cheddar had a couple of chances through Robbi Maggs and Ricky Bennett, while at the other end, keeper Mike Dangerfield had a good game.

Bennett went close again, while Jones forced the keeper into a full-length save as the first-half ended goal-less.

After the break, Maggs was denied by the linesman’s flag and Craig Mawford was denied by a fine save.

Manager Jared Greenhalgh said: “The lads were not happy with this result, and felt that they could have done a lot better, but taking the positives, we maintained a good unbeaten run now for the past four games, and today was our third consecutive clean-sheet.”

Cheddar travel to Wincanton Town on Saturday, followed by a trip to Wellington on Wednesday.
