Bridgwater Reserves 2-2 BLAFC
Lydeard found themselves down to ten men after 15 minutes following the dismissal of Charlie Wilson for a wreckless challenge. Minutes later Jack Adams put Lydeard ahead with a screamer from 25 yards out which went in off the angle of the post and cross bar. Bridgwater levelled on 35 after some sloppy defending and took the lead through a Connor Noble own goal, cruel deflection which left keeps Lawton stranded.
Lydeard soaked up the pressure in the second half, Butler, Clunnie and Andrews worked tirelessly is midfield and contained the Bridgwater flow. On 70 Lydeard equalised through a Tune Govier own goal.
***YOUTH GOALS STOLEN***
Unfortunately this week the club has been the victim of theft. A pair of almost new 9 v 9 plastic goals have been stolen, these are worth nearly £900 and bought new this year for the youth sides. If you have any info or hear of anyone trying to sell any in the local area, please contact us immediately.
