Clevedon Ladies got back to winning ways with a well-earned victory over Redland.

At the start play was evenly balanced, but Clevedon gradually took control with Ella Davey and Harriet Watts dominant in the home midfield.

From a short corner, Caitlin Meredith found Davey at the far post, she controlled the ball beautifully to bamboozle the defence before slotting the ball home for the opening goal.

More opportunities fell Clevedon’s way, Amy Dewfall cleverly created space but her shot went agonisingly wide. Anna Barzotelli always seeking opportunities to score made the Redland defenders work hard.

The home defence held firm as Redland fought to get back in to the game, Meg Coulter and Laura Gillespie always alert to any danger, Christina Becker in the home goal was forced into action, the ball fell loose, but Gillespie cleared the ball as a Redland forward shaped to score..

After the break, Clevedon maintained their dominance Meredith a real thorn in the side of the visiting defence as Tamsin Debude, Ashlee Carter, Davey and Amy Douglas kept Clevedon moving forward.

Meredith ghosted into the D and released the ball for Dewfall to double the lead. With the Redland keeper in good form, the home side were denied further goals but can be pleased with this victory.

On Saturday, Clevedon travel to play Mid Somerset, 2.30pm start in Wells.
