A disappointing result when considering what could have been. Bashley were
dichotomic with game wining displays in the first and last fifteen minutes but
lacking confidence and cohesion in the remaining sixty. 
Bash opened in style with Leighton-Speechley-Price, Blayne Kinley and Nuno
Pereira all having goal chances but fell behind on nineteen minutes when an
unmarked Joe Teall headed in from a corner. Bashley were still in the game at
this stage with both Pereira and Ryan Brading going close but as the half
progressed Clevedon captured the midfield and took control. Apart from a late
chance when Pereira was muscled out in front of goal after a fine through ball by
Brading the half finished with The Seasiders well on top.

A rejuvenated Bash opened the second half with an all-out assault on the
Clevedon goal and, in the two corners that followed a Brading hot shot, hit the
post and lost out to a goal line clearance. The game’s deciding factor came in
the 58th minute when Clevedon’s Troy Budd left a static Bashley defensive
formation for dead to score a classic solo goal. Six minutes later he repeated the
medicine by running on to a delightful through pass to jink the ball over the
advancing Callum Maher.

This was Bashley’s nadir and heralded changes to players, formation and
attitude. Mitchell S-P came on for Chris Hall and Aaron Dunne for the injured
Greg King and with Jamie Thoroughgood and Matt Oldring cajoling from the
centre field the emphasis was very much on attack: speared by Mitchell S-P,
and Pereira with the roaming Brading operating down both flanks.

The pressure paid off in the 74 minute when from close range a delighted Nuno
Pereira scored his first goal for Bashley. Bouwe Bosma came on for Morris and
with all thoughts of defence out of the window it was now a gold and black blitz;
Kinley, Pereira and Mitchell S-P came close but time ran out and it became a
case of too little too late. Not a disaster, top marks for effort but lessons need to
be learnt if Bashley are to progress.

Maher, Morris (Bosma 80), Moore, King (Dunne 67), Thoroughgood, Oldring, Hall
(Speechley-Price M 65) Kinley, Speechley-Price L, Pereira, Brading.
