There was just one change to last week’s line up against Odd Down with Chris Bradley taking over from Shak due to his late arrival at the ground.
The home side got off to a good start showing the side’s intentions to attack whenever possible in search of another victory. It was Bradders who came close with the visitor’s ‘keeper saving well from a strike off of a Callum Vickery free kick cross. Minutes later Leigh White and Will Perry linked up well providing Vickery with a chance blocked away for a corner. Almost immediately after Vickery was through one on one with the ‘keeper but struck his shot wide of the post. It was by no means all one way traffic but the settled back four with Matty Hill barking out encouragement and instructions from his goal area the defensive unit is looking stronger and stronger with each game.
The half finished on equal terms with young Will Perry and ‘old’ Whitey firing in some hefty tackles when needed!
Straight after the restart Bradders had the ball in the net only to be ruled out for off side. On 60 minutes Bradders was replaced by Shak following an injury. Whitey sent in a free kick which Ethan Johnson nodded just wide. A few minutes later Shak was brought down by ‘keeper Chris Male and after being lucky in only receiving a yellow card then saved Liam Knight’s penalty strike.
It was just not Wrington Redhill’s day in front of goal with Shak, Vickery and Knight all thwarting chances that went begging. They were grateful to Ethan Johnson for a last ditch tackle when a breakaway saw an Ilminster player looking likely to steal the game in the closing minutes. There is no doubting the spirit in the team now epitomised in Sam Clements being booked in the final minute of the game protesting to the referee his decision of a free kick against Whitey was the wrong way round.
The Supporters Man of the Match was awarded to William Perry
