Clevedon Town travelled to Wellington and despite the home side playing for most of the second half with 10 men, they managed to hold on to come away with a 2-1 victory.

Wellington got off to the perfect start when they took the lead on seven minutes. There appeared little danger when Jack Bryant received the ball just outside the penalty area but his early shot appeared to catch Clevedon keeper Connor Sidley-Adams unsighted and the ball crept inside the post.

Clevedon went close in the 35th minute when an Elliot Nicholson cross was met by Archie Ferris whose header went narrowly wide of the far post. Five minutes later and good work by Ferris and Callum Kingdon set up Tyler Ashmead, whose shot was pushed around the post.

A minute into stoppage time and Clevedon had a great chance to go in at the break all square when Syd Camper’s shot was well saved.

Playing down the slope in the second half, Clevedon created a great chance 30 seconds after the restart when Ashmead’s cross to Alex Camm saw him shoot over the bar.

Wellington were reduced to 10 men on 50 minutes when Josh Wadham was shown a straight red card for spitting at Glen Hayer.

Clevedon went close again through Danny Lock and Elliot Nicholson, before the home side doubled the lead in the 73rd minute. A corner was stabbed home to make the score 2-0.

Clevedon pulled a goal back on 88 minutes when Ashmead’s run into the box saw him pulled back and Clevedon were awarded a penalty. Substitute Lucas Vowles placed the ball into the top corner to make the final score 2-1.

Clevedon are in action tonight (Wednesday) when Bridport visit The Everyone Active Stadium in the Les Phillips Cup with a 7.45 pm kick-off.

This game is being replayed as the original match played last week was abandoned late in the second half when Clevedon’s Morgan Williams unfortunately suffered a broken leg.

Everyone involved with Clevedon Town would like to wish Morgan all the best and hopes he makes a speedy recovery.

Clevedon Town: C Sidley-Adams, E Nicholson, D Lock (J Sell 62), T Baker, G Hayer, C Kingdon (c), T Ashmead, H Walton (H Smith 72), A Ferris, S Camper (L Vowles 50), A Camm.
