The wasps travelled to Radstock town fc the place of their biggest defeat last season for what they knew would be a difficult encounter this time around. The away side started strong with Marcus Cook hitting the bar inside the first ten minutes and Matt Morley unable to convert the follow up. Radstock then increased the pressure and deservedly took the lead, albeit it was two defensive errors from Wincantons defence that led to two goals inside the first half an hour and they went in at half time two nil down as a result.
The second half started much stronger for the away side and new signing Kris Hastings was unlucky not to score on his debut off a corner when his stabbed shot was saved by the keeper. Radstock made it 3-0 and put the game to bed on the 53rd minute with an early goal of the season contender that whipped into the top far corner from 30 yards giving debutant keeper Jamie Rothwell no chance. Wincanton rallied and improved further with the addition of Jack Burnett making his comeback after serious injuries adding some much needed height against a very big Radstock side. The wasps made it 3-1 when a good free kick from captain Dan Wise was met by the head of player/assistant manager Gary Chapman who's effort went into the bottom corner. After that when the game was stretched with the away side looking for goals the hosts scored a 4th late on killing the game off completely, a well worked goal again giving Rothwell no chance.
A tough start for the wasps but we have a chance to put things right on Wednesday when we travel to local rivals Chard for a 7.30pm KO.
