CLEVEDON entertained Evesham United in the Zamaretto Premier League and for the second Saturday running were beaten at home.
With Gregg Coombes picking up an injury in the pre-match warm-up, Callum Fisher made his full debut at right back and Josh Brigham moved into midfield.

Evesham were the quickest to settle, as three times Chris Cornes had shooting opportunities which he put wide. However on 18 minutes they took the lead when Steve Luckett rose unmarked at the back post to head in a Simon Fitter free kick. Worse was to follow two minutes later when Cornes beat Danny Greaves low down inside his post.
On the half-hour Aaron Blakemore made a great run into the box, rounded the Evesham keeper Nathan Vaughan, but blasted his shot wide of an open net. Cornes went close again for the visitors, and then Callum Fisher hit a long-range effort just over the bar for Clevedon.

On 41 minutes Lee Molyneaux put a great cross into the box and Josh Brigham headed the Seasiders back into the match. But the joy was short-lived because a minute later Evesham made it 3-1 when captain Steve Lutz glanced a header past Greaves.
Just on half time Ellis Wilmot played Pete Sheppard through and his shot was deflected into the path of Blakemore, who volleyed over with Vaughan hopelessly stranded.
At the start of the second half Clevedon made a double substitution, went to just three at the back, and pushed Matthew Walsh forward. But before they could get going with the new formation they went 4-1 down when a long clearance was missed by Lee Molyneaux and found Richard Ball and his shot gave Danny Greaves no chance. The Seasiders then began to pick up their game as Sam Small and Joey Evans had chances from free kicks, and Blakemore headed over from a Pete Sheppard cross.
On Saturday, Clevedon meet Wimborne Town at the Hand Stadium in the FA Cup, kick-off 3pm.
