BISHOPS Lydeard have added Brazilian midfielder Douglas Camilo to their ranks on a short-term loan deal from Taunton Town.

Camilo joined Taunton in September after a successful trial in the summer but has made just six appearances in all competitions, five of which have been from the bench.

Taunton head of football Rob Dray said: "There have been various reasons why he has not played a full game for us. He also went back to Brazil for a family bereavement.

"At the moment he needs game time."

The midfielder, who has played for three clubs in Portugal as well as several in his home city of Rio de Janeiro, made his Lydeard debut in Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to league leaders Cheddar.

Toolstation Western League Division 1
Bishops Lydeard 1, Cheddar 1

THIS entertaining game was played in torrential rain and on a heavy pitch.

The Bishops started well with a conviction and purpose in their play which has been missing from recent performances.

In the sixth minute Jake Quick made a break down the left and crossed for Harry Millar to stroke the ball into the net.

Lydeard continued to dominate the first half. 

Cheddar had the ball in the net twice in the 19th and 54th minutes but both were ruled out for fouls.

They had the better of the game in the second half and eventually equalised in the 73rd minute through a strong shot by Adam Wright.

The home side rallied again and Jake Quick led a number of breakaways but they could not find a way past the visitors' defence.

In the end, the draw was a fair result and a very welcome point for Lydeard. 

They have another tough home fixture on Saturday when they entertain Keynsham Town at 3pm.

Premier Division
Wellington AFC 0, Westbury United 2

WELLINGTON were unable to stop the Westbury United bandwagon on Saturday, the promotion-chasing visitors winning 2-0 at North Street.

The hosts edged a goalless first half, Lewis Tasker sending a couple of efforts wide of goal, while Sam Jones cleared off the line from Steve Hulbert at the other end.

But Westbury's leading scorer Callum Demkiv made the difference after the break, putting his side ahead just after the hour following Jamie Jordan's ball through, and doubling his tally on 70 minutes with another clinical finish.

Tasker and Glen Wright saw shots saved, but there was no way back into the contest for the Tangerines, who host Plymouth Parkway this coming Saturday (ko 3pm).

Wellington: Josh Mclean, George Rogers (Lewis Pocock 61), Jack Bown-Porter, Tim Legg, Scott Drayton, Glen Wright (c), Jack Bryant, Sam Jones (Mitch Woodgate 70), Tom Hawkings (Paolo Borges 73), Josh Wadham, Lewis Tasker.
Subs not used: Sam Bryant, Conor Bryant.
