Wellington kept up there recent good
form with a comfortable win against Spaxton on Sunday afternoon. Although not
at there best they clocked up nine goals without reply and had it not been for
the woodwork and some good goalkeeping the scoreline would of been even more
Welly started off slow and took them ten minutes to get into there stride,once they did they were camped in there opponents half for long periods of time. First half goalscorers were Reegan Scotcher with 3, Luke Maunder 1,Dan Nicholson 1,and Josh Baker with a fine solo goal. They also hit the woodwork on numerous occasions ! Being 6-0 up at half time gave manager Wayne Maunder a chance to let all subs have a good run out and they all done there job well. The second half was a carbon copy of the first with chance after chance for the home side,Jordon Mace scored two well taken goals and there was also a goal for keeper Tom Kelvey who came out onto pitch to score his first goal for the club. All in all another good three points for the lads which keeps them in the title hunt but they will have to learn to play it simple more often when against better sides.The match ball was kindly sponsored by Tony Gibson.
Wellington Under 14's entertained
Division 1 leaders Taunton North Youth on Sunday afternoon in the quarter
finals of the league cup. Previously called Blackbrook they have only lost a
handful of games since they started youth football so from the off Welly knew
they were going to have to work hard to progress to the next
round.Wellington started off the better of the two sides and could count
themselves unlucky not to go ahead from a corner which Josh Baker just put over
the bar. This woke the away side up and from the next attack there skilful
midfielder scored a well taken goal.The home side were more than matching there
opponents in every position and could count themselves unlucky when the away
striker finished off a good move to put them in the driving seat. This seemed
to spur Welly on again and from a free kick the away keeper fumbled to give
Benedict Monteiro a chance to score his second of the season.
After a half time chat, Welly were still in with a chance but there opponents seemed to step up a gear and scored 2 second half goals without reply ! This was only there second defeat of the season (both cup games against higher league opposition) and goes to show when they give there all they have a chance of competing with the top teams .Credit to all 15 players for there effort and to a large crowd who helped cheer the lads on ! Special thankyou to Paul and Kay Scotcher who kindly sponsored the match ball.
