Cheddar 0

Winscombe 1

WINSCOMBE defeated a strong Cheddar side 1-0 to remain fourth in Somerset Division 2 West.

The visitors started brightly and chances came through Clark, Flint and Collier, but for poor finishing and some good saves by Cheddar keeper Woodcock, Winscombe could have gone in at half-time with a three or four goal lead.

As expected, Cheddar came at the visitors at the start of the second period, but Winscombe went ahead through a disputed penalty when Clark was brought down and Stoves calmly putting the resulting kick away.

With Stoves, Hughes, Collier and Clark overpowering the Cheddar midfield, more chances came through the unselfish running of Flint, with substitute Mason almost getting on the end of a couple of crosses.

The back four of Chambers, Hosey, Hooper and Horwood made sure Page in the Winscombe goal was rarely tested, while Clark also hit the bar for Winscombe. Winscombe Fish Bar man of the match was Ben Hooper, but he was pushed by Dan Horwood.

On Saturday, Winscombe are at home to Nailsea United, 3pm kick-off.
