Uhlsport Somerset County League
Division 1
Wrington Redhill 1, Burnham United 3

BURNHAM United have one win and one draw from their opening two County League games in 2020/21, following an impressive victory at Wrington Redhill on Saturday.

The Seasiders made the brighter start and created chances throughout the first half, but it wasn’t until a five-minute spell before half-time that they were able to take control.

Lewis Hembery’s corner led to two goal-line clearances before Ryan Stiles scrambled the ball home, and then a free-kick from Hembery was slotted home by Russell Holley to make it 2-0 at the break.

Wrington pulled a goal back through Reece Ferguson-Obamwonyi’s effort from outside the box, but with 20 minutes to go Curtis Bradshaw hit a 25-yard screamer to seal the three points.

Fusion Man of the Match: Steve Bailey

Burnham’s next match sees them host Welton Rovers Reserves this coming Saturday.


BURNHAM United Reserves picked up their third consecutive draw in Division 3, away to Somerton Town Reserves.

The hosts took the lead from their first attack of the game - Lewis Lambert scoring - and with Burnham profligate in front of goal it looked like it wasn’t going to be.

But in stoppage time Ed Lamb stepped up to secure a 1-1 draw for his side.

Burnham United A also drew, 2-2 away to AFC Nailsea in Division 3 of the Weston-super-Mare & District League.

Nailsea deservedly took the lead, but Harry Wedgewood quickly replied with a composed finish.

Again the hosts went ahead after the break, only for Kade Parkinson to tap in and earn a point.

Burnham United B went down 3-0 at home to Swiss Valley Rangers in Division 4, with the hosts failing to take their chances and Callum Pauline, Harry Smith and Lewis Torrington netting for the away side.


ALSO in Division 4, a ruthless first-half performance from Berrow saw them demolish hosts Yatton & Cleeve United B 7-0 on Saturday, with Joe North grabbing a first-half hat-trick of the highest quality.

North kicked off the rout, collecting a Tom Edwards long ball, turning his marker with a piece of sublime skill and slotting home.

North soon had his second, and Ben Hemingway-Arnold made it 3-0.

It was 5-0 at half-time, North completing his hat-trick with a finish similar to the first, before Dan Guyatt hit a fierce drive.

North bagged his fourth from a Chris Warner pass, and Sid Howe grabbed the seventh as Berrow continued their 100 per cent start to the season.
