The season finally came to a close with a much better performance at the Rec against last year’s champions and this year’s runners up Watchet Town. Manager Graham Cheeseman was able to field a stronger team for this fixture and the visitors knew they were in a competitive game.
George Martin was again causing a threat from the left flank and could have scored a hat trick with a little more luck and composure and playing Sam Clements up front with Jake Horton certainly kept the visitors on their toes with his physical presence. Mike Rowcliffe was back to his busy bustling self in midfield and Chris Bradley also put in a work like performance and Joe Moore trying to get forward as much as possible to help the front pair.
Watchet took a half time lead following poor defensive clearance when Tom Spanks slotted past Matt Hill it bit against the run of play. Generally the defensive quartet were well organised and Leigh White kept Watchet’s classy top scorer Aaron Deeks quiet for most of the game not letting him dwell on the ball for long. Added to that Ollie Clements was always trying to get forward and drilled a number of free kicks and corners which weredealt with by the opposition defence. Ethan Johnson and Marc Rees also played their parts in this encounter.
Wrington Redhill had the better of the second half but just could not find the final touches to convert good play into goals. Jake Horton and Sam Clements kept to the task but were unrewarded for their efforts. Ironically it was Watchet who increased their lead near the end and with a final score line of 2-0 this somewhat flattered them on the overall performance of the home side.
All three substitutes, Mark Brown, Rory Thomas and Scott Gallagher were used in the second half and all three gave all to try and claw something from the game.
