" Given Clevedon's recent record AND after conceding two early goals Redland feared another heavy defeat. However, the defence dug in (many other amateur gardeners also appear to have dug in), the midfield and attack started passing to feet and realised all was not lost. A series of offside decisions disrupted Clevedon's game. Despite the somewhat bumpy pitch both teams played some decent passing football. Late in the first half Bruce crossed for Tony Wilner, who had just come on, to head home past the keeper from close range. Half time 2-1.
Redland had the slope with them in the 2nd half although Clevedon came close when only the post saved Redland. Shortly after, Bruce turned from provider to scorer heading home a perfectly weighted cross from Dave. All square... GAME ON.
Redland had the wind in their sails but were disappointed to concede a penalty, which was duly converted, when a shot hit Jambo's arm from close range. Two late goals, the first from a blocked clearance that looped over the keeper's head, the second from a well executed piece of head tennis gave Clevedon the victory.
Overall, Redland can feel well pleased with their performance, the scoreline hiding what was in reality a close game played in the right spirit by both teams."
