Wellington Football Club is still looking for its first win in the Toolstation Premier League following a fourth successive defeat, this time against Shepton Mallet. Once again Wellington put the ball in the net but were beaten 2-1 – the same score as against Wells in the midweek fixture when they were beaten by a 90th minute goal from a corner.
This was Shepton Mallet’s first win of the season and a match that the Tangerines could have regarded as a fair test of their current standard. Joe Morgan scored both of Shepton Mallet’s goals.
The team is now anchored at the bottom of the league with no points from the matches played in this higher division so far.
There are some reasons for Clive Jones and his players to be positive though: all Wellington’s matches so far have been played away and three against teams considerably higher in the league.
However, next week’s fixtures will continue to set challenges. The Tangerines play away at Bridport (who lie in 11th place) on Wednesday 23rd August and at Cribbs in 6th place on Saturday 26th August. Wellington’s home matches commence on 16th September once the cricket season ends.
