Nailsea Under-12s turned in their best performance of the season in their latest round of matches.

A bright sunny afternoon with an icy cold wind saw Nailsea Under-12s turn on the best performance of the season.

The day started with a win against Chippenham thanks to some great saves by Niamh Brodrick, who kept them in the game with some good saves, until the forwards settled into the game and took the lead.

Even though they came up against some strong opposition in the next two games they kept their heads and stuck to their positions. Marking was a challenge against the lively opposition but they supported each other well.

Kieran Jellis took over in goal for the third and fourth games and as when he is in the pitch, gave his all with his strong kicking and solid saves.

After their hot chocolate, they all emerged from the warmth of the snack bar to secure their best win of the day. The midfield took control and the forwards dominated the attack, while Ben was strong on the ball forging forward. The team backed him well and were on hand to convert their opportunities.

Thanks go to Niamh and Kieran for stepping in the share the goalkeeping and to the parents, who support and encourage despite being ‘frozen’.

Results: Nailsea 1, Chippenham 0 (scorer Ben Warren, player of match Niamh Brodrick); Nailsea 1, Yate 4 (scorer and player of the match Kieran Jellis); Nailsea 0, Clifton Robinsons 1 (player of match Johnny King);

Nailsea 4, Thornbury (Ben Warren 2, Jess Chapman, Niamh Brodrick, player of the match Ben Warren).

Nailsea 1st XI’s game was cancelled due to the pitch being frozen and the second team went away to Mid Somerset and lost 2-0.
