WELLINGTON AFC were frustrated by the weather at the weekend, and the heavy rain has seen tonight's scheduled fixture also bite the dust.

The Tangerines were due to play at Longwell Green Sports on Saturday only for the game to be called off, and the same fate befell tonight's match at Brislington.

Wellington sit 16th in the Premier Division of the Toolstation Western League, and they are due to host 14th-placed Odd Down on Saturday (ko 3pm).


BISHOPS Lydeard were able to play at the weekend, and they moved up to ninth in the First Division of the Western League with a 2-1 win at basement side Warminster Town.

Charlie Wilson gave the visitors the lead, only for Charlie Walton to level for the home side with 15 minutes remaining.

That was enough time for a winning goal, and it went to Lydeard as Mark Clunie found the net.

Weather permitting, Lydeard are set to host Welton Rovers tomorrow night (ko 7.30pm), before another home match, with Wincanton Town, on Saturday (ko 3pm).


IN the Somerset County League, Staplegrove's match with Bridgwater Town Reserves was called off following the heavy rain.

Minehead AFC did get a game in though, beating Street Reserves 3-1 in Division 1 West.

Hosts Minehead went ahead through Luke Bloys' finish from Stefan Phillips' pass.

Phillips made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Guy Burns was fouled.

Street were handed a bizarre lifeline when goalkeeper Sam Tarr allowed a pass back to him to slip past him and trickle into the goal.

Burns settled the game with a 15-yard effort, and the Blues had all three points.

Watchet Town were also in action, coming away from Middlezoy Rovers with a 1-0 win to progress to the semi-finals of the Premier & Division 1 Cup.

They rode their luck at times, but Aaron Deeks' goal five minutes from the end sent them into the last four, where they will visit either Shirehampton or Nailsea & Tickenham.
