Chard Town 9 – 0 Uplyme Youth
Chard Town outclasses Uplyme Youth.
Uplyme kicked off down the slope and although Chard took control early on the Uplyme forwards had some ball and Anthony Simes got a shot or two in . However at the other end Uplyme’s defence was tested and plucky work by keeper Brett James kept the ball out of the net until the sixth minute when a great cross and subsequent efficient strike put Chard ahead. Despite stout defending Chard slotted in two more in the following ten minutes. Uplyme’s forwards had a few more chances thanks to runs by their captain Sam Jones and good long passes from Matt Pile. However despite Pile clearing the ball off the line on the half hour Chard got a fourth goal before half-time.
The second half started with a goal within nine seconds for Chard but, not disheartened, Uplyme still pressed onwards and upwards with hard work put in by Callum Taylor at the back, Will Ridout in mid-field and Jones up front but no score developed. Regardless of Simes clearing a couple from Uplyme’s goal-line Chard had no problems in scoring more goals – a total of five in the second half leaving the final score at nine to nil.
Uplyme’s Man of the Match was judged be Sam Jones. Uplyme’s next match is home to Colyton in the East Devon League on Sunday 20th December.
