Disappointment For Warminster Town

With an improvement in the weather and at last drying pitches it was hoped that Warminster Town could get some improved results this week. We kicked this week off with a Thursday, April 12th evening game at home against mid-table Oldland Abbotonians. Warminster got off to a good start and scored the opening goal by Beau Blakeman. Sadly for The Town, it finished 3 - 1 to the visitors who scored twice late in the game. With so many matches to catch up, the players can hardly draw breath as they faced a trip to Welton Rovers on Saturday, April 14th.

Welton scored first right on the stroke of half-time 45+2. Savery is fouled but the ref plays advantage. He slides a great ball to Charles whose shot is saved and Jammeh finishes the rebound. Warminster played very well in the first half so it was disappointing to go into the dressing room at half-time one nil down.

The second half got underway on 53’ Savery gets on the end of a cross-field ball and slides the perfect cross across the 6-yard line for Courtney to accelerate onto and slot into the back of the net for his first goal at West Clewes, 2-0. Welton Rovers were much stronger in the second-half and piled on the pressure against Warminster.

In the 77th minute, Warminster surprised the home team with a near-post header making it 2 ~ 1. During the final minutes, Welton applied more pressure to the Warminster defence and created many chances, however, the final score remained Welton Rovers 2 Warminster Town 1.

Other important results on Saturday for Warminster Town were that their nearest rivals, Portishead Town lost one nil at home to Wincanton Town and Sherborne lost three nil away at Westbury United. The gap in points remains the same although the number of games played is not in the Red & Blacks favour. See the table below.
