Match Report-Winsham United v Uplyme  (0-2) 31st October

With storm Zeta affecting most games in the PSDL, Winsham’s game vs Uplyme had the go ahead! Donning a new kit Winsham were missing key personnel against an inform Uplyme team. Winsham started well, creating multiple chances in the first quarter that lacked a finishing touch. Uplyme took the lead at the half hour mark, a well taken strike from around twenty yards and were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty late into the first half. Chances fell to Dan Harvey and Karl Fletcher to grab the equaliser, but the Uplyme goalkeeper stood strong.

Into the second half and Winsham searched for an early equaliser with two valid penalty appeals waved on by the referee. Winsham continued to push men forward, allowing Uplyme to secure a second as they broke away with a quick counter. A final result of 2-0 to Uplyme, a fair result against the best team Winsham have come up against this season. All the Winsham team gave their all in a physical and enjoyable encounter. Man of the match Richard White in the sticks upset a couple Uplyme players with his performance. Not just his unbelievable saves in goal, but reminding players not to cross the line!

Match Report-Winsham United v Chard Rangers First (5-1) 24th October

Winsham return to Bakersfield with a 5-1 win against rivals Chard Rangers First. A sloppy start to the game as the wet weather settled in for the afternoon. Neither side really settled for the first 20. A tactical change from the Winsham manager Jay Stewart introduced better attacking play from the Winsham side. The introduction of Tom Stead saw him break the deadlock with a fine strike that couldn't be kept out by the Rangers keeper. 1-0 Winsham at half time.

Into the second half and Winsham start well. Matt Gaylard controlled a deflected corner to produce a tidy volley into the corner of the net. 2-0 Chard Rangers react well and produce a well taken goal to get them back into the game. Winsham then started to run riot, Steady taking his second of the game. Quickly followed by Ross Goodland finishing off a well worked play across the box and passed the ball into an empty net. Goal machine Tom Stead was keen to complete his hat-trick, and so he did. Taking the ball inside the box at a tight angle and blasting the ball into net. Another memorable hat-trick for the big man. Full Time 5-1 Winsham. Well done lads!

Match Report- Winsham United v Shepton Beauchamp Reserves (1-2) 10th October

This week’s fixture saw a young Shepton side come out on top of a well battled game. Shepton started the game with consistent attacking threat against the Winsham defence. Standing strong for the first 10, but Shepton found themselves 1-0 ahead after Winsham failed to clear the ball. Not long after the Shepton side gained the confidence to outplay the Winsham midfield, slotting the ball through the middle as the Shepton striker only had the keeper to beat 2-0. Midway through the first half Winsham switched it up, with Joe Simmons filling in at CB as Tony Harwood pushed into the midfield. Winsham started to win the battle in the middle, and gained a degree of control as the first half came to an end.

Winsham went into the second half with great momentum. The lads fought for every 1st and 2nd ball and started to press the Shepton defence. All we needed was a goal, hard work from striker Dan Harvey paid off as his pinpoint strike from the edge of the box put Winsham back into the game 2-1. Space opened up in the Winsham defence as we pushed for the equaliser. Fantastic work from goalkeeper Richard White kept the Winsham side in the game, a couple of exceptional saves. Winsham continued to push the Shepton side back into their half, but couldn't find the equalising goal.


Match Report- Winsham United v Forton Rangers Reserves (0-3) 26th September,2020

Winsham hosted our first home league fixture against Forton Rangers Reserves. A well battled fixture that resulted in Forton coming out on top. The game was well balanced to start, with neither side creating much in the final third. Winsham grew into the game, playing better attacking football but without the goals. Forton reacted well and a quick counter attack was conceded by Winsham. 0-1 at the break.

A somewhat scruffy second half didn't get going well. An early injury into the first 20 saw goalkeeper Richard White replaced. At this stage legs were beginning to tire in the last twenty, giving Forton multiple opportunities to increase the 1-0 lead. Winsham tried to press for the equaliser, but allowed Forton to take 2 further goals in the last quarter. A couple chances for Winsham to get back into the game, but we just weren't clinical in front of goal. 0-3 Unlucky lads, on to the next one!

Thank you to all spectators who respected the Covid-19 guidance. A good amount of support for both sides.

Match Report-Winsham United v Perry Street Reserves-Saturday, 5th September
The game yesterday was fantastic. We had 17 players wanting to play and received great support also. Winsham played some great passing football and were winning 2-0 at half time with goals from Joe Simmons and Dan Collins. In the second half we began to fade with lack of match practice and fitness and a very young Perry Street team scored 4 goals in the final 25 minutes making the final score 4-2 to Perry Street. The game was very enjoyable for all and we look forward to the next game. (away to Millway Rise Reserves 12/09/2020).
