Game 11: Wellington 2.1 Wincanton United (Western 1) 21.02.15
After a good run down the A303 and a lunch stop in Little Chef we found a free car parking area behind the ground. Some players were heading towards a park pitch and we worked out it was Wellington 3rd’s v Colyton’s 2nd’s in Division 8 of the Exeter and Devon league.As we walked into the ground we could see the Wellington monument on the skyline to the right.
Wellington had the better of the earlier exchanges and it was a surprise when Wincanton took the lead after 25 minutes following a Wellington corner. The ball was quickly cleared downfield and the keeper had no cover as the Wincanton player calmly slotted a low shot past him. Wellington equalised just before halftime when a corner wasn’t cleared and the ball was knocked past the keeper and in.
Both teams created some good chances in the second half but it was Wellington who claimed the three points. In the 80th minute a low freekick into the centre of the area was flicked on and the ball found its way past the keeper and in.
