Oldland suffered a home defeat in their first home league match of the season against a very good Wells City.
The match got off to a bright start in good but windy conditions and Oldland were at it from the off, an early chance saw Cash Vinall on his own inside the box on two minutes and he put the ball away to give Oldland the lead. The next 20 minutes or so saw The Os dominate and they could have had three or four more goals before Wells found their feet and pretty much dictated the rest of the game. Wells equalised through Harry Foster on 26 minutes to leave the sides level. A very good, fast fluid Wells front line and some strong well organised defending saw them maintain control over the young Oldland side. Tom Hilly scored a great goal on 42 minutes to give Wells a 2-1 half time lead lobbing keeper Carter from just outside the box.
In the second half, Oldland pushed and tried but following a run down the left from Harvey Hadrill, Foster slid home a second goal for himself to make it 3-1 and then completed his hat-trick on 56 minutes. The Os continued and had chances a great free kick saved well and also the rebound before Cash Vinall found himself sin binned for dissent after being pulled up for a fiarly harsh fould when going 50-50 with the keeper.
No complaints a home defeat against a very good Wells side who look bound to be amongst the front runners next season.
