Wrington-Redhill 3 Worle 1
WRINGTON-Redhill entertained Worle at the Rec prevailing 3-1.
The visitors took the lead early in a messy first half, due mainly to some inept defending in the penalty box. As the half progressed, the hosts struggled to put any pattern to their play against the tenacious play by the visitors.
A half-time team talk by assistant manager Lee Probert saw a much-improved home side in the second half.
The scores were levelled after Neil Andow was felled in the box and Nick Buck smashed home a shot from 25 yards. Graham Cheeseman made it three in determined fashion, holding off the attention of the Worle defence to break away and slot home.
