Wells Town's poor start to the season continued on Saturday at Thorpe Recreation Ground as they searched for their first three points of the season but lost 3-1 to St Andrews.

Armiger saved any blushes for the visitors with several first-class saves as the Saints looked as though they would steam roll into a goal feast.

Wells' best chance of the half saw Walker save a good Grocott shot, with Griffin looking to slot home the rebound, the ball skimming wide of the target.

Ingham broke the deadlock on 34 minutes when he placed a good effort wide of the visitors' keeper.

Minutes later Pennell added a second to leave the Saints in the driving seat.

Wells reshaped and looked a better side in the second period, Somerton reduced the arrears with a well-placed shot that flew passed Walker.

Saints cleared a visitors attack at the expense of a Wells corner, Cawston just failing to connect at the far post, Walker then held the ball on his line as Wells thought they had equalised, Saints killed off the contest on 90 minutes when Taylor found space to slot home passed Armiger.

Wells Town host Caister Beach Road 2.30pm.

Meanwhile, Wells Reserves suffered defeat at home to Freethorpe, three nil down at the interval before Pentney reduced the arrears with a good strike. Wells Reserves next travel to Harleston 2.30pm.
