Somerset Premier Cup

Chard Town 1, Wellington 5

WELLINGTON eased into the next round of the Somerset Premier Cup thanks to a 5-1 win at Chard Town last night (Wednesday).

The visitors raced into a 3-0 lead after just 26 minutes through Kai Fisher, a stunning Ian Bellinger free-kick and Sam Towler.

Though Chard pulled one back after the break, the hosts then had a man sent off before goals from Bellinger and Sam Bryant secured Welly's progress.

This weekend, Wellington travel to Southampton to face Sholing in the FA Vase second round.
