AT the weekend, poor weather and waterlogged pitches meant that both Chard Town and Ilminster Town had their games postponed.

Chard were due to take on Mendip Broadwalk in the Somerset Senior Cup on Saturday, but it was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

While Ilminster's match against Winscombe in the same competition was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch as well.

Both games have now been rescheduled for this coming weekend on Saturday, November 11.

For Ilminster, this meant another rearranged match as the Somerset County Premier League clash away to League Leaders Mendip Broadwalk originally scheduled for October 11, will now take place in March.

The club have said this is probably a good thing with the Blues up against the League leaders the following week (November 18) in the quarter finals of the Somerset County Premier/Division One League Cup.

But amidst a weekend of no football to report on, we thought we would take a look at how both our Somerset County Premier Division sides have started the campaign.

Chard Town

For the Robins, it has been an up and down start but over recent weeks have found some form that has seen them climb up to tenth on the league table.

In their eight games played, Chard have won three, drawn two and lost three for a total of 11 points.

Goals wise, they have scored 15 and conceded 18 for a goal difference of minus three.

While those numbers might not sound that exciting, what is, is the current form of Chard Town.

The Robins are currently on an eight game unbeaten run in all competitions, which extends back to September 2.

The young squad has grown into a solid unit and if this current form continues, we could be seeing Chard Town towards the top end of the table come the end of the season.

Ilminster Town

The Blues start to the season has been worse, just slightly, than local rivals Chard Town.

Currently Ilminster Town sit in 13th place in the league table and are only out of the relegation places on goal difference.

In their eight games played, they have won two, drawn two and lost four, for a total of eight points.

The team has scored 14 goals in the league campaign and conceded 17, for a minus three difference as well.

While it doesn't sound great to be narrowly out of the relegation places, recent form suggests good news for Ilminster.

The Blues have lost just once in their last matches in all competitions so it is clear this youthful side has grown into the campaign already. Hopefully more to come.
