FOOTBALL: Reserves make it a double for Wellington
8:50pm Sunday 17th February 2013 in Sport
WELLINGTON Reserves made it the best day for the club all season when they smashed the only unbeaten record that remained in division one of the Devon and Exeter League yesterday.
They beat second-placed Sidbury United 2-0 at home to move within eight points of their opponents and with a run of home games to come in March there is every chance that Wellington could be in a promotion shake up.
Sidbury arrived with just one sub and did not look as if they were the second best team in the division when they turned up at North Street and Wellington never let them settle as a dominant back four performance from Luke Bryant, Jamie Fleet, Simon Morton and James Rowley set the scene.
Chris Cherry in Wellington's goal only had one genuine save to make and that he did well to dive low and put the ball behind for a corner on the half time break; at this time Wellington were 1-0 thanks to a sweeping move upfield that ended with Sam Bryant slotting home from close range.
Oli Nott - a second half change for Wellington - made it 2-0 and all in all Wellington had produced a fine all round effort and are now sixth with eleven to play.
They are set to travel to Cullompton Rangers Reserves next Saturday to play a team who have only managed to play seven games all season and are faced with the mother of all fixture backlogs.
