Nailsea Ladies were held to a draw by Redland with the home side grabbing a late equaliser.

Nailsea travelled to UWE to play Redland and took the lead and kept it for much of the game.

A hand injury requiring a hospital visit and a player feeling unwell, reduced Nailsea’s playing strength, eventually resulting in Redland grabbing an equaliser.

The seconds battled well to get themselves back into this match after going 3-0 down in the early stages.

Helen Harrington and Tree Holly secured the midfield and pushed into attack giving Cara Jones opportunity to run at the defence. Jones along with Dani Marks created several chances one of which was converted by Jones. This lifted Nailsea and Dani Newport got the last touch on a goal line skirmish.

The second half continued to be a battle for points with chances at both ends, but good defensive play from Kim Thomas, Hannah Clark and Ellie Holdaway denied Hanham any further goals.

Meanwhile, the Nailsea attack kept chipping away in an effort to find a crack in the Hanham defence and found success with a team effort and a lunge from Jones once again.

Despite a shaky start, Nailsea gave a gutsy performance to get themselves back into the game and take a point. Congratulations to Hannah Clark for taking player of the match.

It was the Under-10s turn to travel to Yate for a festival and they started well and continued to improve throughout the afternoon.

Edward Bartle-Jenkins was unlucky not to be rewarded with a goal for his efforts throughout the afternoon and at the back, Jake Chapman tackled well.

However, when moved into attack he worked well with Edward and Maisy Hole, scoring a good goal in the last match. Nailsea were unlucky to be beaten by a ball trickling over the line in the first game and a soft goal in the second.

Megan Richardson made some good tackles and short passes, while sister Paige was solid and focused throughout the festival.

Maisy Hole had a lively afternoon and Kieran Jellis made several great saves and did some big kicks to clear his line. Midfielder Daisy Bartle-Jenkins moved confidently through the field to secure the midfield and feed the attack.

Results: Lost 1-0 to City of Bath (player of the match: Jake Chapman); lost 1-0 to Cheltenham (Paige Richardson); drew 0-0 with Corsham (Daisy Bartle-Jenkins); lost 5-1 to Bath Buccs A (Kieran Jellis, scorer Jake Chapman). Player of the festival: Maisy Hole.
