Wrington Redhill went behind in the 1st minute when goalkeeper James Williams was adjudged to has brought down a Clevedon forward who went to ground like a dying swan at the lightest of touches. James got nowhere near the spot kick and so we kicked off 1 nil down in the 2nd minute. The boys grew into the game and started to enjoy more possession as the game went on. After 25 minutes Rouvrais won a free kick inside the Clevedon half and Leigh White’s free kick was cleverly glanced in by Mike Rowcliffe. Wrington then thought they’d gone 2 -1 up when Liam Knight bundled the ball over the line in a goalmouth scramble only for it to be dragged out by the goalkeeper. All the visiting supporters said it was definitely in and all the Clevedon fans said it was definitely not and even though Trev’ Cleeves discussed it vigorously with the linesman referee Andie Lambourne was unable to award the goal.
In the 2nd half Wrington Redhill started to boss the game and were looking the more likely to score when, from a breakaway, Clevedon earned themselves another penalty. With the ball out wide a Clevedon winger tricked his was past ‘Dutch’ Holland and when Sam Johnson waved a lazy leg at him he threw himself to the ground to win a penalty that was coolly slotted home. Once again Wrington bounced back and with 15 minutes remaining Shac’ O’Connor equalised from another Whitey free kick. Clevedon were stirred into action by this and for the final 10 minutes Wrington Redhill rode their luck partly thanks to some fine handling from goalkeeper Williams who brought off a fine save in the dying minutes to deny the home team. Man of the match for Wrington Redhill was Chris ‘ Dutchman’ Holland who defended well and supported the forward line with attacking forays into the Clevedon half.
