Somerset Premier Division: Nailsea United 4-1 Chard Town

After the great win on Tuesday night Chard travelled to Nailsea who are in the middle of the table so the form book would have said a draw.

Chard started well creating chances but again our leading goalscorer Jordon Clapp was missing and Tim Legg was still injured.

So once again players were having to play out of position. Joe Chamberlain was back but still not to his best.

After 7m great play from James Boyland found Joe Chamberlain in space, his shot was saved but Liam Cleal was quick to put it into the back of the net. Straight from the restart Nailsea attacked and hit the bar.

All afternoon Jason Contreras was struggling to find the Chard players, because of the gusty wind.

On 32m a stray clearance found a Nailsea attacker who pounced on the ball and struck a sweet shot for the equaliser.

Three minutes later a free kick was crossed into the box, Jason Contreras came out to catch it and again the swirling wind took it over his head into the goal. 2-1 at half time was harsh.

The second half started and a reshuffle to get back into the game didn't work for Chard.

As Chard was pushing forward Nailsea got their third after 67m and killed the game. Will Board came on for Joe Chamberlain but Chard couldn't get another goal. In the dying minutes Nailsea got their fourth of the afternoon, it was a maximus win for Nailsea as it shot them up the table.

The games are coming thick and fast now as the season is closing, travelling away is tiring for the team and having a Derby match on Tuesday didn't help matters.

Next Saturday Chard travel to Chilcompton and then away again the following Saturday to Fry Club. Two tough games, hopefully we can have a full strength team.

On the 25th May the club is holding a Summer Fun Day which includes the FA Cup Final then Seatrees are providing live music at night.
