2020-21 season

And some earlier reports as Lockdowns 1, 2 and 3 played havoc with fixtures

Games on: Nailsea fixtures


With the football season coming to an early close because of the Covid-19 restrictions two Nailsea teams played a local derby in the Uhlsport Somerset County League subsidiary cup.
The game which resulted in a 1-1 draw was on Saturday, April 17, when Nailsea & Tickenham Football Club challenged Nailsea United on its home ground at Fryth Way.
Both teams had been hugely disappointed at the decision by the FA to curtail the 2020-2021 season.
The goal scorers were Dan Cook for N&TFC and Leon Osborne for United with Mandy Kerfoot acting as referee.

Council leisure centres reopen

Scotch Horn re-opens on Monday, April 12
Backwell Leisure Centre re-opens on Saturday, May 1

Council-run leisure centres in North Somerset will re-open on Monday, April 12, with Backwell following on Saturday, May 1.

As well as Backwell, Hutton Moor in Weston-super-Mare, Scotch Horn in Nailsea, Parish Wharf at Portishead and Strode in Clevedon will all open their doors again following the relaxing of the government's lockdown restrictions.

North Somerset Council is working closely with the operators, Legacy Leisure and Places Leisure, to get the centres ready to re-open safely with restricted access following government guidelines, offering gym sessions and swimming in the first phase of re-opening.

North Somerset Council executive member for leisure, culture and tourism Mike Solomon is the Independent ward councillor for Hutton and Locking.

He said: “I'm delighted to see our leisure centres opening their doors again.

 “By improving the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents the centres play a vital role in our local communities."

Much-needed repair works and investment has been carried out across all the leisure centres to ensure they are ready for re-opening.

At Strode the changing rooms have been improved, poolside tiles replaced and structural work has been carried out and new boilers installed.
