CLEVEDON United hosted another well placed side in the league at The Hand on Wednesday. It proved to be an exciting and entertaining game with both sides committed to going for the three points from the outset.
After seven minutes United's midfielder Tim Martin found room to shoot on goal but was denied by the Keynsham keeper. Adam Grinter, missing strike partner and top scorer Sam Clark, is going through that phase that affects most top forwards. He had chances to convert and surely it is only a matter of time before he finds that luck that his effort deserves in front of goal. The visitors responded with good chances of their own but either shot wide or was saved by the on form Ben Dancey in the United goal.

After 27 minutes United were 1-0 down when Keynsham skipper Luke Lipinski found inches of space and scored with a magnificent strike from 20 yards to the top left hand corner of the net which would have defeated any goalkeeper in the league.
Keynsham proved to be a well organised and strong footballing side that were excellent opposition to the young United team who responded well and in truth had the greater possession throughout, playing a slick passing game against a side protecting their lead well by maintaining a gradually higher defensive line as the game went on.

An intelligent and quickly taken free kick after 70 minutes by James Springett from just outside the area caught the visitors defence napping and found Jamie Adams clear on goal but his shot disappointingly cleared the bar.
Undaunted United motivated by the excellent Wes Wilson, the JJ Carpentry man of the match, continued to press to the end and had chances of their own. Keynsham to their credit looked to add to their score but were content in the end to soak up the later pressure from the home side to come away with three valuable points.
