Toolstation League premier division: Keynsham Town 4, Wellington 0 

Our first team’s miserable Bank Holiday weekend was completed by defeat away to bottom-of-the-table Keynsham Town this afternoon (Monday, 29th).

The Tangerines had conceded three goals in the last five minutes to lose 4-3 at Clevedon Town only two days earlier and things went from bad to worse as we got off to the worst possible start.

The game was only three minutes old when Jemar Thomas found himself in space on the left-hand side of the box and curled a low shot past young keeper Charlie Hawkings.

Keynsham almost doubled their lead shortly afterwards when they rattled our woodwork but they were not to be denied a second goal as Thomas pounced on a defensive error after seven minutes.

We had a golden chance to reduce the arrears after 19 minutes when we were awarded a penalty. Nathaniel Groom, always a threat up front, was sent tumbling in the box and picked himself up to take the kick which was brilliantly saved by keeper Josey Casa-Grande.

To rub salt into the visitors’ wounds, Keynsham then scored twice more before the break. They made it 3-0 after 25 minutes as they were awarded a penalty of their own – this time Owen Brain made no mistake – and two minutes later it was four as skipper Henry Sady produced an audacious chip from more than 35 yards out.

We made a double substitution after 38 minutes, sending on Glen Wright and new signing Sam Steel in an effort to shake things up.

And, although we produced a much-improved performance in the second half, we did virtually everything but score and were unable to make any inroads into the Keynsham lead.

Wellington: Charlie Hawkings, Mark Cornish, Tom Stone, Alex Cherry, Jason Quick, Jamie Nicholson, Stefan Phillips, Eli Collins, Jack Bown-Porter, Nathaniel Groom, Jake Quick. Substitutes: Hasham Ashraf, Sam Steel, Glen Wright (all used); Miles Quick and Michael Murphy (not used).
