Paget strike nets Fishermen Reserves home draw

Beer Albion Reserves came back from two goals down to share the points with Clyst Valley Reserves, writes Mike Adkin.

The visitors dominated much of the proceedings through the first half, and went ahead on 18 minutes when a ball across the Fishermen’s box wasn’t cleared, allowing the Valley’s centre forward to slot the ball home inside keeper Henry Bartlett’s left post.

Beer almost squared things in the 33rd minute from a free-kick; a header from Ollie Padget across the box saw brother Alex just head over the crossbar.

But the visitors continued to enjoy more possession and play some neat passing football, and it was no surprise when their lead was doubled a minute later after some neat interchanges on the edge of the Beer penalty area.

However, the Albion slowly upped their game as the second half progressed, playing much more pressing football as the Valley’s players began to defend more deeply, and were unlucky not to get one back on 57 minutes when a Tom Neale shot was just tipped around the post.

The introduction of Kyle Gould also brought an increasing threat down Beer’s left, and the Fishermen got back into the game when Taylor Rooke slotted home from a Gould pass on 62 minutes.

The increasing domination of the Fishermen paid off on 72 minutes when a nicely placed Alex Padget header squared things up at 2-2. Padget could have sneaked all three points in stoppage time, with another header just over the crossbar, but overall, both sides would be happy with the draw, in what was another entertaining afternoon at the Furzebrake. For Beer, Ryan King had another fine game, but sponsors Marine House at Beer picked out the Valley’s Dan Holman as Man of the Match, for a strong midfield display.

On Saturday (October 6) Beer Reserves are in Bill Slee Cup action when they host Otterton (2pm). The match sponsor is East Devon Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic.
