Shepton Mallet Res 0-5 Nailsea & Tickenham FC
N&T started on top and the first chance came to them as good hold up play from Joe Berry plays it to James Seeley and his cross is hit out for a corner. The resulting corner goes out to the far post and Dan Cook tackles the defender and he shoots while on the turn and it hits the side netting.
Louis Keane then switches play his great ball out finds Joe Berry who runs at the defence and shoots from just outside the box and it grazes the top of the bar.
N&T continued to find space and this time Chris Gale finds space on the left wing and cuts inside and shoots and the keeper saves and just about keeps hold of the ball.
Aaron Latta then found space on the wing and crosses into the box and Dan Cook wins the header but the shot goes wide.
James Seeley wins the ball in his own half and plays the ball down the wing to Joe Berry who cuts inside the box and uses his skill to beat his man and then places it around the keeper to give N&T the deserved lead.
N&T kept Shepton in penned in their own half and just before half time Joe Berry made it 2-0 after high pressure on Shepton's back four resulted in their defender trying to head back to the keeper but the header was poor and Joe raced onto it and took it round the keeper and tapped it home to double the advantage going into half time.
Second half started as the same way and inside the first 10 minutes a throw in from Josh Benjamin to James Seeley and Seeley turns past his man and smashes the ball from 25 yards out and it flies into the top corner.
Great work from Joe Berry beats two defenders and crosses into the box, Louis Keane gets a touch on it but the keeper saves it.
A rare attack from Shepton and the ball over the top bounces which catches Dan Cook out and his attempt to win the ball back he lunges into the tackle and catches their striker in the knee and Dan is given a yellow card for the foul.
Joe Berry's persistence pays off again and he wins the ball off the defender and passes out to Josh Benjamin and crosses into the box and Louis Keane does brilliantly and passes into James Seeley who shoots first time of asking and gets his second of the game to give N&T a 4-0 lead.
With a few minutes left a ball down the left wing from Chris Gale and Joe puts pressure on the defender and forces him into a mistake and Joe runs into the box and smashes it in to get his hat-trick.
Full time Nailsea & Tickenham 5-0 Shepton Mallet Reserves.
