CLEVEDON travelled to lowly placed Zamaretto League rivals Wimborne, but came away suffering a 5-0 defeat at the hands of the home team.

Jason Mellor was called upon early to make two magnificent saves after just seven minutes, but a minute later a weak clearance from the Clevedon defence found Dominic Allen on the edge of the box to convert with a well placed shot.

Things got worse after 17 minutes when the Seasiders went two down when Mellor was unable to hold a cross and the ball dropped to Andy Culliford to hammer home.

Town’s Jonny Moss and Kyle O’Donovan had shots of their own but were off target. Then in the 36th minute, an excellent passing move between Reeko Best and O’Donovan saw the striker test the keeper Jakub Malara for the first time.

Clevedon started the second half in a more determined mood. Chas Hemmings in midfield was competitive and worked tirelessly throughout the game.

On the hour, Wimborne skipper Liam Green picked up a loose ball in midfield moved forward and beat Mellor to make it 3 0. After 71 minutes, the game was out of sight when James Stokoe latched on to a long clearance up field and his shot from 22 yards found the net.

Lloyd Mills and Steve Kingdon in defence found the ball coming back at them time after time despite the efforts of Hemmings and the busy Kris Lee.

Mellor saved from Kev James with a full length dive and the resulting corner had to be cleared off the line after finding the head of a home team attacker. The final action saw Wimborne score their fifth goal after 91 minutes when substitute Tim Hunt scored.

Clevedon man of match was Chas Hemmings.
