Wrington-Redhill 1

WRINGTON-Redhill travelled to close neighbours and top-of-the-table Yatton for their first game in six weeks.

They imposed themselves quickly on the home team, playing some excellent free-flowing football. Pressure eventually paid dividends when captain Mark Andow burst through Yatton’s defence to neatly finish another impressive attack after 30 minutes.

The second half saw Yatton grow more into the game and a mistake by Wrington saw a Yatton forward slot home the equaliser.

Wrington rallied again and bombarded the home penalty area with corners and crosses, causing some desperate defending. Yatton showed why they are the league leaders, counter attacking quickly and effectively.

Wrington-Redhill man of the match was Callum Fisher, chosen by Spindle Enterprises plc.
