Hemmings hat-trick haunts Halesowen

Clevedon Town earned three valuable points with a 3-2 home win over Halesowen,

CLEVEDON Town took a welcome three points at home to Halesowen, thanks to a Chas Hemmings hat-trick.

The visitors took the early initiative, Justin Nisbett tapping in for a simple goal after six minutes, following Jason Wood’s cross.

The Seasiders drew level in the 18th minute when Hemmings was on hand to head in the equaliser, after George Brimson’s cross caused confusion in the box.

Soon after, Ashley Kington saw his effort saved by Halesowen keeper Paul Evans. Clevedon took the lead two minutes before the break when Hemmings let fly with a 30 yard drive, giving Evans no chance.
