Nailsea seconds travelled to top of table Shepton Mallet and came very close to taking points off them.

A much-improved team performance and an excellent game in goal from player of the match, Kira Cunio kept Nailsea in with a fighting chance.

Nailsea youngsters took part in an Under-12 festival and there were lots of positives, including positional improvement from everyone and as always a great team spirit from beginning to end.

Lily Bartle-Jenkins battled well in midfield and Jess Chapman had some good runs and scored in the first game. The defence stayed strong and Maisy Hole made some excellent saves throughout.

Ellie Richardson was solid all morning, while Lois Pnkney and Ruby Cairns combined well together. Jake Chapman and Edward Bartle-Jenkins scurried about the pitch and there was lovely play from Niamh Brodrick. Daisy Bartle-Jekins, one of the youngest players was not intimidated by the bigger opposition.

Results: Beat Chippenham 1-0 (player of the match: Lily Bartle-Jenkns, scorer Jess Chapman); lost 1-0 to Yate (Ellie Richardson); lost 2-0 to Somerset Gryphons (Niamh Brodrick); lost 2-0 to Corsham (Maisy Hole).

The parent’s player was Ruby Cairns and thanks go to the parents for their sideline support and encouragement.
