THIS was a well-earned and hard-fought point for Nailsea, against a well-organised Thornbury side.

Halfway through the first-half, Thornbury took the lead only for Nailsea to equalise immediately with a superb overhead kick from Jon Moulding. Thornbury took the lead again just before the break, only for Nailsea to equalise through Ricky Jefferies on the stroke of half-time.

For a third time, Thornbury took the lead straight after the break only for Nailsea to peg them back when Ricky Jefferies volleyed in from the edge of the box following a hectic goalmouth scramble.

The rest of the game was an open affair with Nailsea defending well and posing a threat on the break. Overall a good performance and point for Nailsea.

Keeper Chris Shaddick was voted oppositions’ MVP by Thornbury, with his brother Mark Shaddick voted Nailsea’s man of the match.
