Wellington made it two pre-season friendly wins in four days with a 4-0 victory away to neighbours Bishops Lydeard from division one of the Toolstation League.

In a competitive encounter, Wellington played down the slope in the first half and soon got into their stride. They started to create chances and it came as no surprise when the advancing Mark Cornish took a return pass on the edge of the box to drive the ball into the roof of the net.

It was not long before they increased their lead through the lively Jamie Nicholson, who finished a period of good play by placing a well-struck shot into the corner of the net.

Wellington continued to dominate play without adding to the score while the home team kept competing without really troubling keeper Rob Hall – they did get the ball into the net but it was ruled out for offside.

Both teams made a number of changes in the second half with Wellington continuing to press and restrict Lydeard to breakaways and long-range shots before Jesse Howe was brought down in the penalty area and converted the spot-kick with Jack Bown-Porter adding the fourth when he was on hand at the far post to convert a cross.

Next up for Wellington is a trip to Exmouth Town – newly promoted from the Toolstation League to the Southern League – on Wednesday, ko 7.30pm.
