HAVING not won a game since the end of September, Wells turned the form book upside down on December 8 with a hard fought and spirited win in the wind and the rain against North Somerset visitors, Clevedon.

They followed that 12-5 triumph with another win on December 15, beating Gordano 15-10 to get the second half of the season off to a good start.

With the squad struck down with injuries to key players, Wells have struggled over the past couple of months, losing seven games straight off, some by quite horrendous scores, but the youngsters who have come in have played with plenty of spirit and even when losing by many points, they have always held their heads up. Experience can sometimes be hard earned.

Wells are currently two places off the bottom of the Tribute Western Counties League table, with just Cheltenham and Chosen Hill Former Pupils below them.

They now have a three-week Christmas break. Hopefully, some of the injured will be fit to play as the weeks go on and Wells be looking to win more often, especially the home games. Although it might seem corny to say, bonus points would also be a bonus. These are earned by scoring four or more tries, or losing by seven points or less. Wells have earned just two this season so far, a lot less than any other club in the league.

Wells 2nds fared less well than the 1sts in their last two games, going down 48-5 to Bristol Barbarians 2nds on December 1, and 29-17 to Yatton 2nds on December 8.
Wells RFC would like to wish all their sponsors and supporters a very Prosperous New Year.
