Four days after the home defeat to Almondsbury, Warminster Town welcomed Wells City to Weymouth Street. Though Wells are high flyers, this season sitting in fourth, Warminster were determined to pick up points from this game. The first half started lively with a Wells City ball being fizzed across the goal inches away from the on-rushing striker’s head. Warminster would grow into the first half, becoming the dominant side in the latter stages. Wells would carve out a few chances, Thomson being called into action to try and gather a troublesome free kick, eventually cleared for a corner. The corner bounced out of the box, falling to Wells’ number 8, who missed over the bar by only a fraction. Warminster’s best chance would fall to Captain James Vincent, whose header couldn’t find the back of the net. Warminster showed positive signs, particularly when in possession.
The 2nd half would start with Wells as the better side, with Thomson being called into action on a number of occasions, making some spectacular saves. James Vincent would pick up a yellow as tempers flair between the two sides, both wanting a win. Wells would score midway through the half, but a late ball meant the striker was caught offside. Logan Cassidy, Cory Gardner and Max Wyatt would all come off the bench for the attaching trio of James Vincent, Jakob Seviour and Jamal Chevelleau. With the captain’s armband being handed to Eben Mortimer-Taylor in James Vincent’s absence. Warminster would then take control back from Wells, with Max Wyatt, in particular, looking deadly with some wide balls into the box, which unfortunately amounted to little. The game would finish 0-0 between Wells City and Warminster Town. Overall a good performance showed Warminster moving in the right direction going into the FA Vase game against Newport IOW FC on Saturday.
