Two Weir Town edge past Nomads in Secretary's Cup clash
Two Weir Town just about made the one-division gap tell as they knocked Nomads out of the Roper Rhodes Bathrooms Bath & District League Secretary’s Cup courtesy of a 4-3 success.
James Wellstead gave Two Weir the lead with a stinging drive and Nathan Evans swiftly made it 2-0 as Nomads’ depleted side struggled in the opening stages.
They were thrown a lifeline when Dave Chedgy was tripped in the penalty box and Gareth Paisey stroked home the resulting penalty. On the stroke of half-time, Chedgy headed home Andy Coombs’ hanging free-kick to level the scores.
Two Weir regained the lead when Evans tapped in from close range and appeared to have made the game safe when Jordan Newport made it 4-2 with ten minutes remaining. Will Withers pulled another goal back, heading in from ten yards, but the Division 4 side saw out the final stages fairly comfortably to progress to round two.
