After two postponements due to the weather, Worle finally got underway with the quarter-final of the Somerset Senior Cup fixture away against Nailsea United from the Premier League.

United kicked off and took the game to Worle, taking the lead on 15 minutes when a long free kick by Rob Brown was won in the air by Stuart Lee, who guided the ball back to Sam Olsen who beat Dancey in the Worle goal.

Worle were looking a more composed team and with the pairing of Hodrien and the returning Adams up front, were dangerous on the break and they finished the half strongly with Adamson in the Nailsea making some good saves.

Worle showed their intentions from the restart with Adams going close, before they equalised just before the hour when a cross by Adams was slid home from close range by Jack Hodrien.

Worle took the lead on 71 minutes with a shot from McManus which eluded Adamson to find the back of the net. Worle could have extended their lead with a great effort from Adams, but Adamson pulled off a fingertip save.

Worle played extremely well in the conditions and are now looking forward to another semi-final home draw when they take on Nailsea & Tickenham, also from the Premier League on April 7.

This Saturday Worle take on league leaders Yatton & Cleeve away.
