Bridgwater Town Reserves 1 Wrington Redhill 2
Wrington travelled to Bridgwater on Wednesday night to take on a new look Bridgwater side consisting of academy and first team fringe players. Wrington started the brighter of the two sides, taking the lead after five minutes. Sam Johnson providing a pin point cross for Graham Cheeseman to lift the ball over the advancing keeper. Wrington continued to press forward and got their reward on 18 minutes, a Simon Rigg cross was flicked on by Cheeseman allowing Neil Andow to open his seasons account. Bridgwater clawed one back from a corner on thirty eight minutes that appeared to come off the hands of the centre forward. This seemed to inspire Bridgwater and the young guns began to pass the ball with confidence but to their credit, the Wrington rear guard of Johnson, B Murray and Holland held firm.
HT 1 – 2
The second half began at the same pace, the technically gifted Bridgwater side passing and movement was at times a joy to watch. This was matched by the tireless work and dogged defending of White, Rowcliffe and Braddley. It really was all hands to the pump and Dauncey in goal pulled off two fine saves from free kicks to keep Wrington on top. The two hard working wing backs, Norris and Rigg gave everything to the cause and were replaced with half an hour to go by the Thomas brothers, Kye and Rory. This settled the side and with the introduction of Lucas, Wrington held on to secure their first Premiership win in their history. A mention must be made for the Bridgwater side who, IF they can keep that side will be a handful this season.
