Nailsea & Tickenham Res 2

A rusty Nailsea & Tickenham Reserves continued their unbeaten league season with a comfortable away victory.

Jake Murray deputised in goal for the injured Kev Freeman, but over the course of the game had little to do, as the away side controlled much of the match.

Matt Pilgrim was fouled after 25 minutes inside the box and Al Parsons scored the resulting penalty to give the hosts the lead. Further chances to increase the lead from Alan Mcferran and Chris Corner were missed and Pilgrim had a goal ruled out for offside.

The second half was much the same with Nailsea creating a number of good chances, Chris James in the Churchill goal saving well twice from long-range Mark Ashley efforts.

Finally, the away side added a second goal when Ashley finished well after a goalmouth scramble, but there was still time for N&T to miss further chances from Yeo and Latta during a game that in truth could have been a far higher score line.

The Reserves host Weston St Johns in a top of the table clash on Saturday where they will have to play better in order to retain their unbeaten record.

The Blue Flame man of the match was Chris James in the Churchill goal.
