Somerset Premier Division: Fry Club 0-3 Ilminster Town

THE first of a run of evening matches started well for the Blues with an impressive 3-0 victory away against a top six team, writes Andrew Fish.

The team once again carried on from the cup win last week and were completely dominate throughout with goals from the impressive Evan Howse, Harvey Saunders and Jack Steer.

Mindful of the number of matches still to play the management once again freshen up the side with five chances as Lee Sweet, Will Spurway, Harvey Saunders, Thomas Lee and Evan Howse all came into the starting eleven. Will Spurway was star man as he used all his experience to boss the midfield.

Somerset Premier Division: Mendip Broadwalk 1-0 Ilminster Town

For the fourth time this season two teams which know each other so well went toe to toe, with the score at 0-0 as the match entered the last five minutes a free kick was awarded to the home side.

The ball was delivered in at pace and a couple of deflections saw the ball end up in the Ilminster net off a Town defender, it was a cruel way to lose the match where the Blues certainly matched the League Leaders throughout.

Mendip after the defeat to Ilminster last Saturday seemed nervous to start with with and knew this was going to be another tough match as they look to win the League and get promotion to the Toolstation Western League next season.

Both sides cancelled each other out for the majority of the match, with not many efforts on target, the best chance fell to Ilminster as Jack Steer had a mazy run in the second half before releasing Sam Rowswell who saw his goal bound shot saved by the fingertips of the Mendip keeper at full stretch.

This was the third big game for the team in seven days and a despite losing the team can certainly taken a lot of positives from the performance. The Mendip Broadwalk management team said after the match that the Town certainly deserved a draw.

The whole team certainly put in a shift with Tom Case once again impressive at the back.

It gets really busy for the team now as this week the team travel to Keynsham Town on Tuesday night, on Saturday its the League Cup semi-Final home to Chilcompton Sports the match kicks off at 3.00pm at the Archie Gooch Pavilion.

Easter Monday sees the third game in six days as Fry Club come down for the return fixture at Ilminster which also has a 3.00pm kick off at the Archie Gooch Pavilion.
