Uhlsport Somerset Premier Division: Chard Town 6-1 Somerton Town 

CHARD Town's last full league game was on October 14, and since they have played in two cup games and gone through to the next round in both.

Since Andrew Holmes took over, Chard have scored a lot of goals, mainly due to the return of James Boyland and Jordon Clapp coming into the team as well as other additions.

On Saturday, the Robins welcomed Somerton Town to Zembard Lane and were dominant as they won 6-1.

The first half kicked off with us facing the slope, within seconds Joe Chamberlain was down and it wasn't looking good for him on his league debut for the club.

Within 4m he had recovered enough to slot the ball in the net after some great skill from James Boyland to make it 1-0.

Somerton kept playing there entertaining football and were rewarded with a penalty after 13 minutes. Jason Contreras made a fantastic save, diving to his left and kept Chard in the game.

Seven minutes later an Olly Board cross was handled and Jordon Clapp stood up to take a penalty, he put it in the bottom corner for 2-0.

Again Somerton kept up the pressure and on the 29th minute got a goal they deserved.

Not to be outdone three minutes later James Boyland causing havoc down the right placed a perfect ball onto the head of the struggling Jordon Clapp.

Three minutes before half time, James Boyland again working his magic dribbled past three defenders and put the ball like a rocket into the top corner with his weaker left foot for the goal of the season.

Starting the second half 4-1 up, Chard looked to maintain the pressure and score more goals.

In the 49th minute, Olly Board who was solid in midfield alongside captain Alex Manley broke through the centre of the Somerton defence his shot was parried and fell to the feet of James Boyland who passed the ball into the empty net.

Jordon Clapp was replaced by Conor Fielder who stayed alert twelve minutes later after he cut out a short pass to a defender. Unselfishly instead of going for goal he laid a perfect pass to Joe Chamberlain for him to get his second of the day and six for Chard Town.

There were more chances but no more goals meaning the score at full time was 6-1.

It was another display of great football from everyone in the squad with Tim Legg solid in the centre with Scott Wells-Burr.

Next week, Chard have a tough cup game against Chilcompton Sports then away at Mendip Broadwalk on December 9.

On December 15, the club are hosting a bingo night and the Christmas Draw tickets are now available.
