MINEHEAD end their season with an away match against Yatton & Cleeve United in the first division of the Uhlsport Somerset County Football League on Saturday.

It has been a disappointing season for Minehead who are currently 11th in the table but could move up a place on goal difference if they end the season with a victory.

It will be a tough match at Yatton who have already clinched third place - and promotion to the premier division. There was a time, too, when it looked as if they might pip Watchet for the runners-up spot. But they have had an hectic end of season programme which often proves points in the bag are often better than games in hand.

Minehead, with Craig Carr in charge towards the latter part of the season, are unbeaten in their last four matches and would obviously like to end the season on a winning note.

They beat Burnham United 2-0 away a fortnight ago - and Carr must be pleased with the way some of his youngsters have blended in with the more experienced players in the side. No decision has been made yet on who will be managing the side next season but Carr would appear to be the man although the club have had enquiries regarding interest in the job. Minehead’s new chairman Robbie Hopkins says the position of manager will be discussed once the season is over.

Meanwhile, Watchet Town secured the runners-up spot over the weekend when they beat Ashcott 2-0 away with goals by Billy Jones (penalty) and Charley Clausen. It means they finished the season by losing only one of their last 17 matches - a run which stretches back to before Christmas.

Unfortunately, that one loss was against Staplegrove who have won the championship - they finished three points clear of Watchet who won 19 of their 28 league fixtures, drew four and lost only five times. They finished with 61 points.

The game at Ashcott also marked the end of Adam Bishop's 20-year spell as the seasiders' goalkeeper. Bishop began playing for Watchet as a 14-year-old and has proved to be one of the best keepers in the division.

It means Watchet will obviously be looking for a new goalkeeper for next season. Bishop, however, has not always been available this season because of injury.

This weekend's match - the only match which is being played in the division - brings an end to football for all teams in the division.

*Nailsea & Tickenham Reserves gained a 16-0 home win over Saltford - also in the first division - on Bank Holiday Monday. Daniel Nelson scored five of the goals, and there were hat-tricks for Jack Godfrey and Nick Walker.
