Wellington had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home to Wells City on Saturday 23rd December, a result which is likely to be disappointing for Manager Clive Jones. He said before the game that it was “a must-win for us, although we want to win all our games.” Wells City are just below Wellington in the Toolstation Premier Division with 6 points separating the two sides.
Wellington were 1-0 ahead after just 10 minutes with a goal from Jack Bown-Porter who also scored the second. James Clough, returning to the side after an absence of 2 years, was named Man of the Match. The home side had to settle for a draw when ‘a determined and committed Wells City’ replied with two goals of their own.
A much-changed Wellington were without eight regular first team players for this fixture, among them Sam and Conor Bryant, Ian Bellinger, Joe Chamberlain and Glen Wright.
The Tangerines’ next match is on Boxing Day away at Bridgwater Town. The hosts lie in tenth place and Wellington will want a few of their absent players to return if they are to be truly competitive.
