Toolstation Western League Premier Division

Wellington 1, Cadbury Heath 1

WELLINGTON manager Tim Legg took plenty of positives from his first game in charge as a new-look side earned a late draw against Cadbury Heath.

Substitute Paolo Borges' cross-shot found the net in injury time to salvage a point which, in Legg's view, was "the least we deserved".

The new boss, who replaced Clive Jones last week, had a hectic first few days in charge as he added new players and there were several debutants in the side.

George Sinnott, formerly of Bridgwater Town and Minehead, lined up on the left wing while ex-Taunton Town defender Tom Stone played at the heart of defence.

Local lads Jordan Mace and Josh Baker, who have been impressing in the reserves, also made their first-team bows.

Wellington had the edge in the first half but lacked a cutting edge in front of goal, though Ollie Holman did have the ball in the net only to be denied by an offside flag.

Cadbury Heath upped their game after the break and broke the deadlock through Enis Akgun on 57 minutes.

Ethan Tucker then hit the posts for the visitors and Heath paid for failing to make the points safe when Borges' cross from the left sailed over the goalkeeper's head to level the scores in the dying minutes.

Legg said: "In the first half, we were really good.

"If we had scored then, I think we would have gone on to win the game.

"Credit to Cadbury Heath, they changed their system at half-time and were on top for the first 15 or 20 minutes of the second half.

"We came back into it towards the end and the draw was the least we deserved.

"There is lots to be pleased with and now we will look to build on this."

Legg hasn't given up hope of keeping hold of the first-teamers who were absent on Saturday, with several still deciding on their futures, and was full of praise for the new and existing players in his squad.

"Those who have stayed - Tom Welsh, Josh Pearson, Carl Jones, Ian Bellinger, Glen Wright, Joe Wylie - have been brilliant," he said.

"The new lads all played well - Jordan Mace and Josh Baker were both really good.

"There are other players interested in joining us, which is a positive as we want competition for places."

Wellington host Street on Saturday (3pm).
