Toolstation Western League
Premier Division
Shepton Mallet 2, Wellington AFC 1

TIM Legg suffered his first defeat as Wellington manager on Saturday, away to mid-table side Shepton Mallet.

Legg's makeshift side – without captain Glen Wright, new defender Jake Horsey and Ian Bellinger – was boosted by the inclusion of new signings Neil Last and Luke Boyle, as well as Aaron Hawkings, promoted from the Reserves.

The Tangerines did well to go in goalless at half-time, having played up the slope, but they fell behind two minutes after the interval, as Tyrone Tucker-Dixon's low cross from the right found its way into the net.

However, Wellington were level inside five minutes, as George Sinnott burst forward and his cross from the left was converted by debutant Boyle.

The decisive goal came on 69 minutes, as Kieran Bailey rose to head in from a corner to put the hosts back ahead.

The away side were unable to equalise for a second time, and so they remain fourth from bottom in the Premier Division table.

Wellington: Tom Welch, Josh Pearson, Carl Jones, Tom Stone, Neil Last, Luke Boyle, Aaron Hawkings, Joe Wylie, George Sinnott, Charlie Dodd, Ollie Holman. Substitutes: Paolo Borges and Jordan Mace (used), Ollie Nott (not used). Attendance: 148.

This coming Saturday sees Wellington host fourth-placed Hallen (ko 3pm).

Bishops Lydeard, who had their First Division match at home to Devizes Town postponed after a pitch inspection at the weekend, are set to travel to Almondsbury this Saturday coming (ko 3pm).

Before that, they are in Les Phillips Cup action at home to Keynsham Town this Wednesday (ko 7.30pm).
