UPHILL finished the season with a below-par performance against a determined Cheddar side.

Cheddar started the brighter and it was against the run of play when a Mark Rawlins goal-kick was netted by Matt Bebber for his 20th goal of the season to give Uphill the lead.

Winscombe 7

Burnham Utd 1

WINSCOMBE comprehensively beat Burnham 7-1 in their last game of the season.

Played in a gale force wind throughout, Winscombe attacked from the off and Winter, Flint, Payne, Willis and Hughes were all guilty of serious misses or good saves by the keeper.

The second half started much the same, but it all changed after 58 minutes when Hughes was bundled over and Hutchinson scored. The floodgates opened and Winter doubled the lead, before the Burnham winger pulled a goal back.

Flint scored next, followed by a free kick almost in his own half by Hutchinson and he soon completed his hat-trick with another. Winter scored his 10th in five games to make it 6-1.

The goal of the game came in the last minute when the ball was crossed and Paige, who normally keeps goal, nodded the ball home.

The club would like to thank both Luke King and Jamie Hutchinson as they played their last games before going on to pastures new.

At the end of season presentation after the game, the following trophies were presented to – manager’s player: Tim Paige; players’ player: Jamie Chambers; young player: Mike Hosey; most improved player: Alex Bailey; clubman: Dave Hughes; hat-trick awards: Rob Winter and Jamie Hutchinson; man of match awards: Tim Paige; 100 first team appearances award: Ben Hooper and Tim Stoves.

WRINGTON Redhill achieved promotion as runners-up in the Somerset County Division 1 and will be playing in the Premier Division next season.
