WELLINGTON’S remarkable season turn-around continued on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Cheddar in division one of the Western league.

They were forced to come from behind having conceded an early goal, but Ian Bellinger and Tom Ellis netted before half-time for Mike Hawes’ side, to make it six wins from their last seven games – and the manager says he is pleased with the way his players have fought back from a difficult start to the season.

“It’s already been a season of two halves for us, we only played one home game quite early on which makes things difficult – and recently we have had a whole load of home games, which on our pitch with the slope, is a huge advantage for us.

“Tim Legg got himself fit and started playing well, and Tom Ellis and Ian Bellinger, who seems to be one to make things happen for us, have also helped us turn things around.

“But it can all change very quickly, we know that – injuries like the one to Luke Redrup, can affect things, but we’re hoping to improve on last season’s finish.”

After ten minutes Wellington lost Luke Redrup when he was heavily tackled from behind.

It was no surprise when after 15 minutes Cheddar went in front - Sam Jones was left unmarked to head them into the lead.

Wellington were struggling to get into the game and it took a fantastic finish from Bellinger to bring them level. From the corner of the box he hit a shot which flew over the Cheddar keeper.

Wellington were now back in the game and Cheddar were stunned when from a corner, Ellis scored a rare goal with a left foot shot. Minutes later the referee blew for half time.

After their poor first half Wellington came out expecting a tough second period, but with Ellis and Duckenski competing well, ably supported by their full backs Bryant and Legg, Cheddar were restricted to few efforts.

The game threatened to boil over with Cheddar having three players booked in quick succession, but Wellington were now looking the team more likely to score and Bellinger twice, Towler, Bryant, Jones all had chances to score.

Nott broke through at the end and chipped the keeper, only to see the ball hit the crossbar.

With minutes left, Jones made a fantastic run from the half way line only to be halted on the edge of the Wellington box.

Wellington are at home to Roman Glass on Saturday (3pm).

Wellington: Jake Viney, Luke Bryant, Tim Legg, Carl Duckenski, Tom Ellis, Sam Towler, James Clough, Jack Bryant, Carl Jones, Luke Redrup, Ian Bellinger; subs, Joe Holmes, Ollie Nott.
