The Club should be proud of the players who managed to travel to Watchet on a week night for a fixture kicking off at 6.30 pm. Why the league imposes such fixtures on Clubs at this level is mystifying when all players and officials are in full time employment and cannot always be released from their work commitments easily.
Despite the score line it was not all one way traffic and some dubious decisions went against the visitors at crucial stages and resulted in goals being conceded. There were chances that came our way but we did not have the clinical finishing powers that Watchet produced and you could certainly see they are a very organised side as defending champions and again in the mix for league honours this season.
With some of our players arriving just before kickoff it was difficult for a proper warm up session and indeed only one substitute was available and due to timing and traffic issues did not arrive until well into the first half.
Manager Graham Cheeseman and his squad now have three consecutive fixtures against teams below them and all are crucial in the battle to remain in the top flight Somerset County League division which in part will be influenced by more non league changes proposed for next season where the number of teams in each division will be reduced.
Let’s all support Graham and the lads in great numbers starting with Saturday’s visit of Wells City at the Rec with a 3.00 pm kick off.
