Somerset Division One: Combe St Nicholas 0-0 Westfield

COMBE St Nicholas FC drew at home on Saturday against fellow relegation battlers Westfield.

The match in the Uhlsport Somerset Division One ended 0-0 after neither Combe or Westfield could break the deadlock.

The draw was Combe's third of the campaign so far and in fairness it was an improved performance from last time out where they lost 1-4.

They do remain in the relegation places on the league table while Westfield are just above them and currently in a safe place.

Up next is an away trip to take on second placed Watchet Town on Saturday, March 2 in what will be a tough challenge.

Elsewhere at Combe St Nicholas at the weekend, the Reserves team lost 0-7 at home against Forton Rangers in the Perry Street & District Leagues Premier Division.

It was a tough result that sees them stuck at the bottom of the league table while Forton push closer to the top.

Credit should go to the Reserves squad for the perseverance they have shown this season in what has been difficult circumstances.

Last weekend they took on Shepton's First Team and whilst they lost 3-1, the Reserves have improved on their performances this year with the young side developing.

In the match last week, youngsters Cody Weller scored while Riley Hull grabbed man of the match. 

Finally, the Combe St Nicholas Colts won 3-2 in their match against Shepton Beauchamp Reserves last weekend.

That match in the Perry Street & District Leagues Division Two was an end-to-end battle and an entertaining one at that.

Bradley Putt scored twice for the Colts while Stephen Park scored the other goal in the win.

It was the Colts third win of the season after a dogged game in tough conditions and their dominance counted early with a good finish from Brad Putt who completed a trademark turn and shot.

The next goal closely followed after left back Stephen Park let rip from 25 yards. The ball bounced awkwardly for the keeper and Combe got their reward.

The second half was a lot tougher as Shepton gained the advantage from the weather.

Combe had settled the game when Brad Putt scored his 5th goal in 2 games with a very impressive effort outside the box. With the outside of his boot, he sent a curling effort over the top of the keeper.
