Town lose unbeaten record
PUBLISHED: 15:03 25 October 2010
NAILSEA Town's unbeaten restart to the Errea Somerset County League Division 1 season ended at Fryth Way following a 3-2 defeat by Berrow.
Town started brightly enough, but Berrow had come to make a game of it and their crafty forwards were a constant thorn in the side of the Nailsea defence. Despite this, Town were ahead at half time due to a fine strike from top scorer Matt Fisher on 40 minutes after good work from Miles Sullyman.
After the break, Berrow gave as good as they got and forced an equaliser following a defensive mix up in the Town defence. A minute or so later, Berrow were awarded a penalty which was duly converted. Things then got even worse for Town when Berrow scored again to take an emphatic 3-1 lead.
However, this seemed to spur Nailsea on, especially after the introduction of the lively Mike Dorrington up front. From a corner, the towering Chris Geeson scored with a header which set up the proverbial grandstand finish. It was now all Nailsea and an equaliser seemed likely, but time ran out as the referee blew for full time.
With a tough fixture list in the next few weeks, Town need to regroup and gear themselves up for the challenges that lie ahead.
The next fixture is away at Bishop Sutton Reserves Saturday, kick off 3pm.
