CLEVEDON Town and Almondsbury Town met in a competitive match 
for the first time in 78 years as they locked horns in a Red Insure Cup first round tie, which saw Clevedon go through to the next round with a convincing 4-0 victory at the Hand Stadium.

They carried on where they left off on Saturday with a convincing display against an Almondsbury side led by 
ex-Clevedon legend Lee Jefferies.

A fairly even first half with few chances ended goal-less, but the second half was an different affair.

Kyle O’Donovan opened the scoring when his fierce long range effort was deflected past the keeper on 50 
minutes. George Brimson had two 
great efforts before he was brought down on the edge of the box for Matt Townley to double Clevedon’s lead on 64 minutes with his first goal for the club.

Clevedon were now in full flow Brimson scored one of the goals of the season as he dribbled through the visitor’s defence before unleashing a superb right foot shot to make it 3-0 after 72 minutes.

More was to come when Lee Jefferies brought down Kyle O’Donovan and 
referee Michael Cairns had no choice but to award a penalty, which Matt Thorne converted with ease to make it 4-0 in the 76th minute.
