Worle Rangers lost to Clevedon Dons in the Atwell Shield.

Worle Rangers 0

Clevedon Dons 2

RANGERS welcomed back Brinson and Quick to the starting 11 for the visit of Division 2 Clevedon Dons in the Atwell Shield.

The first-half was a tense affair with both team cancelling each other out in the centre of the park, but it was Rangers who were on top while never really carving out any clear cut opportunities.

You may also want to watch:

With Stephens the lone striker, the home team were struggling to get Dugmore and Liddiard close enough to make an impression on the opposition goal. There was plenty of endeavour in the midfield with Sleeman, Bush and Brinson all trying to play football in tricky conditions.

However, it was the away team who opened the scoring following a lofted free kick which nestled in the top corner which left Jakeman with no chance.

After the break, Rangers carved out numerous half chances, but could not put the ball in the net. At one point the home team went with two at the back and went all out attack as Randall was also introduced.

With time running out, the Dons went two up when Martin Williams unfortunately conceded a penalty which was converted.

Brinson had a good game, Liddiard was lively and Hannam worked hard, but it was skipper Matt Wilson who was awarded the Curry Gardens man of the match award.
