Somerset Premier Division: Chard Town 1-0 Clevedon United

On Saturday Clevedon United were the visitors to Zembard Lane a tough team to beat although their form has dipped lately and they were 7th in league.

Chard started down the slope in the first half and created some good chances. Clevedon started to settle and created some of their own.

On the 23m Jordan Clapp had a chance on goal from a tight angle, the goalkeeper saved it but it bounced back to Jordan's feet, he didn't miss the second time putting over the keeper into the roof of the net. Up to half time Chard pushed for the second goal but didn't succeed.

Defending up the slope isn't easy but protecting a 1-0 lead would be hard work for 45m. Clevedon United played some great football but hardly troubled Jason Contreras in goal.

On 72m Max Westlake went off to be replaced by Joe Chamberlain who had suffered an injury a couple of weeks ago, after the game he said it was still not right.

On 80m Jordan Clapp went off to be replaced by the rested James Boyland. Fresh legs up front might just get us the the winner. It wasn't to be and the game ended 1-0.

Another good win and 3 points on the board, Chard move up to 7th in the league.

As games come round quickly we need to rotate the squad as much as possible. On Wednesday night 27th Timsbury are the visitors.

Then on Saturday Chard play away at Clutton followed by another home game on Monday against Uphill Castle.

The regular front three will be missing for the last two of them games so it will be interesting to see who will replace them.
