Clevedon Town finally recorded their first win of the season at the 13th attempt with the winner scored deep into injury time.

Will Sneddon-Coombes almost scored from an early kick and there were chances for Joe Ellis, Tyler Davis and James Morgan as the first-half finished goal-less.

After the break, there were further chances for Morgan and Davis, while at the other end Ben Gast made an excellent point-blank save, with the follow-up shot blocked on the line by Sneddon-Coombes.

Longwell Green took the lead in the 64th minute when the ball was played over the top for Jack Rhys-Jones to chip the ball over Gast and into the net. The hosts equalised 12 minutes later when James Robinson set Jake Harris free to beat Longwell’s Olly Player.

Neither team was prepared to settle for a point and both went looking for a winner and thankfully for the home supporters it was Clevedon that got it.

In the third minute of time added on, Ellis was fouled and Sneddon-Coombes’ free kick hard took a deflection before flying into the net to make the score 2-1 and to see all 11 Clevedon players celebrating wildly together.

Clevedon Town: B Gast, A Ferris, J Staines, J Buxton, J Robinson, W Sneddon-Coombes, T Davis, I Diallo (S Groves 63), J Harris, J Ellis (c), J Morgan (A Sandy 72).
