Wrighton Redhill v Yatton

Somerset Cup

Saturday 28th November 2015

A small apology to start in that the match notes have gone missing so this is an abridged version of events.

Wrington entertained Yatton on a bleak and stormy ‘Rec’.

The game was only 35 seconds old when Wrington opened the scoring thanks to a cross that found the head of the returning Leigh White. ‘Whitey’ powered his header past the Yatton keeper from 8 yards to open the scoring. 1-0.

Wrington extended their lead when Luke Patten popped up to score from close range. 2-0

Yatton gradually got themselves back in the game and scored on 20 minutes to narrow the gap. 2-1

Minutes later a Yatton forward was manhandled in the box for what looked to all watching a stonewall penalty. The referee waved away the Yatton protests and Wrington broke to nearly score again through Patten. This was as good as it was going to get for Yatton.

Moments later Wrington had their own penalty claim denied by the referee. As half-time approached Wrington extended their lead when Graham Cheeseman (Pictured) scored from 12 yards. 1-3.

H/T 3-1

After the first five minutes of the second half Wrington took complete control of the game and were almost scoring at will come the end.

The brilliant Luke Patten coolly added 4 more goals to his burgeoning goal tally to complete a 5 goal haul.

The irreplaceable Cheeseman notched another with a rasping shot from 14 yards. Someone else got the ninth for a 9-1 victory.

Yatton travelled with 5 first team players missing and clearly they struggled against a confident Wrington team.

Manager Smith said. ‘ Of course I am happy with this result. We played some decent stuff in terrible conditions and I feel the squad also believe that they can play a bit given the opportunity. I am still unhappy that we conceded but I know that really is being picky. I know Yatton travelled with a weaken side but you still had to take advantage of that and my players certainly did that’

F/T 9-1

MOTM Graham Cheeseman. Led the line brilliantly and got a couple himself.
