South West One

Newent 38pts Chard 7pts

Chard’s woes were summed up in this game as once again they never looked like winning a game away from home . This inability to pick up points on the road this season has certainly been their achilles heel and the main reason why they have been able to pull away from the bottom three positions.
Having put in a stunning performance to put Bridgwater to the sword last weekend Chard were never at the races in this one. Injuries and unavailability did not help but to be honest it has been forever thus for away games this season.
Chard did get a try just before the break when Siljeur crossed for the score which was converted by Oesman. This should have given them hope especially as they would have the advantage of the slope and wind in the second half. Sadly it was not to be and in many ways their second half performance was very poor.
Newent were a committed side rather than an outstanding one and Chard supporters will remember that Chard won the match in Chard very comfortably.
In this game they certainly wanted it more than Chard.
A bad day at the office!

This coming Friday Chard will have a chance to make amends when they take on local rivals
North Petherton under lights with the game kicking off at 7 30pm with the Chard under 10s hosting Crewkerne Under 10s beforehand kicking off at 6:15.
This games should attract a good sized crowd and has been rescheduled from Saturday afternoon.
Come along and support you local team .
