Another disappointing defeat away to fellow league strugglers Nailsea United with the home side taking an early lead on six minutes when Matt Day headed home from a free kick. However it was not all one way traffic although Wrington Redhill needs to be a bit more threatening around their opponent’s penalty area.
The best first half chance came when a defender headed Ollie Clements’ corner towards goal but a tremendous save from Jack Smith pushed the ball onto the crossbar and subsequently away from any further danger. The lead was doubled on 40 minutes when Sam Olsen latched onto a loose ball that ricochet off Leigh White and Jason Potter and slotted past Matt Hill for 2-0 half time lead.
After the interval Wrington Redhill took the game to their hosts with a series of corners from Ollie Clements the best of which saw his brother Sam head over the bar. Rory Thomas replaced Callum Briggs and from his corner Chris Bradley headed wide. Cruelly following pretty much even play Nailsea scored again this time through Sam Olsen following a poor clearance from defence.
Mark Brown replaced Jake Horton and a good build up involving Thomas and George Martin led to strike from distance by Whitey that when high of the crossbar. A consolation goal came five minutes from time when a penalty was awarded for a handball offence. Ollie Clements effort was smothered by Smith but the alert Mike Rowcliffe latched onto the rebound and found the net for a final score of 3-1 to the home side.
