Challenging start for Keynsham Town

TO say it has been a difficult start to the season for Keynsham Town’s young first team – following their relegation to the Toolstation Western League Division One – would definitely be an understatement.

The management have had to chop and change several players every game due to availability, and sadly defensive errors blighted several of their early games, leaving them playing catch-up at this early stage.

However, although the Ks have only recorded one victory to date, a fine 3-2 win away to Cheddar, performances are improving and there are positives which the club’s volunteers and supporters need to focus on.

Off the field, the club has created a new marketing team led by Martin Parfrey. There are plenty of excellent opportunities for local businesses to get involved with the town’s community club. For details, call Martin on 07498 940676 or send an email with your name and phone number to

Ks reserves have also had a difficult start to their Uhlsport Somerset County Premier Division campaign, suffering three defeats so far, although all those games were against the top three teams in the league.

Similarly, the Ks ladies got off to a disappointing start, losing their opening league game 4-3 at home to Maidenhead.

Meanwhile, there’s plenty of football to look forward to at Crown Fields during the first few weeks of the season, as follows:

Tue Sep 5: Men’s reserves v Somerton Town, 7.45pm
