Almondsbury UWE 0

A second 1-0 win in the space of five days secured a big three points for Cheddar at Bowdens Park against a well-organised Almondsbury side.

In a generally uneventful first 45 minutes, honours were even at the break although the Cheesemen could not finish off fine deliveries from Craig Mawford and Chris Coombs which caused havoc in the visitors defence.
