Following the short FA Vase adventure last Saturday, Wincanton returned to league action as they welcomed Keynsham Town to Moor Lane.
The hosts started brightly with a handful of sharp saves as Wincanton tested the Keynsham keeper early on. Wincanton looked the better side with a few chances yet no end product to pay off. The best efforts coming from Dan Wise and Connor Williams. Then Keynsham had their first opportunity from a corner that immediately troubled the Wincanton defence and resulted in the Keynsham centre half finding space in the box to hit the back of the net to give Keynsham and first half lead. This is how it stayed as the half time whistle went. A disappointing end to the half after a promising start.
The second half saw Wincanton come out strong again with good efforts from George Rigby, Luke Williams and Matt Morley but no sign of a goal to make the game level. Midway through the second half, goalkeeper James Stewart got injured which meant they had to bring on Jack White as a makeshift goalkeeper. It wasn't what Wincanton needed but Keynsham did not cause much threat on the Wincanton goal so Jack White had very little to do. Within the last 10 minutes Wincanton began to make one final push for a leveler but Keynsham were able to hold onto their lead and they took all three points back to North Somerset.
Next up Wincanton host mid table rivals Bishop Sutton at Moor Lane this Saturday.
