Much to discuss between Vickery and Horton at half time

Wrington Redhill started the better in this keenly contested match, after 5 minutes Callum Vickery broke through on goal but his shot was well saved. After 10 minutes Vickery, who spent the whole afternoon tormenting the home defence, was brought down near the edge of the box but the free kick was cleared by the Nailsea defence. Nailsea came more into the game as the half went on and on 30 minutes created a great chance but the shot from inside the box was charged down when the whole midfield dived in to protect the goal. Wrington Redhill just shaded the 1st half but there wasn’t much in it. The 2nd half started with the visitors again looking the sharper, a cross from Jake Horton just eluded Chris Holland and then Liam Knight and Horton again had crosses gathered well by the Nailsea keeper. On 55 minutes Sam Clements was replaced by Chris Bradley for the visitors. After 60 minutes the goal came when a cross from new signing Jake Horton was attacked by Bradley, the ball eventually fell at the feet of Vickery who calmly shifted it from one foot to the other before rolling it into the net. Wrington continued to push for a 2nd but Nailsea could have equalised on 65 minutes when Matt Hill in goal for the visitors saved a powerful  header from a corner. Soon after, debutant Horton should have opened his account when the ball fell to him right in front of goal after more neat footwork from Vickery but he blasted his shot way over from close range. Proud dad Alistair was on the side lines to watch his young sons Adam and Daniel Caulfield come off the bench for Wrington Redhill and Joe Moore looked once again like he was born to play at this standard. Nailsea came more and more into the game in the final 20 minutes but the Wrington defence marshalled by Sam and Ethan Johnson held firm. Matt Hill still had work to do though and saved a point blank header from Jamie Roberts near the end of the game. Nailsea kept pushing, a Scott Fisher shot went just wide and Wrington were glad when the full time whistle finally went
There was much debate about the Wrington Redhill man of the match, would it be Mike Rowcliffe of Leigh White who both had immense games in midfield or Callum Vickery who terrorised the Nailsea defence ? No, the travelling supporters decided on Matt Hill in goal, not his busiest day but 2 vital saves and some clean handling saw him return home with the champagne!??
