At a bright and breezy Culverden The Wells missed their chance to leapfrog visitor's Chatham Town. With a run of games coming up there were some changes to what has been a fairly settled starting XI, with a welcome return for both Perry Spackman and Josh Stanford.
The game was just 2 mins old when a wayward clearance eventually found its way to Chatham striker Stuart Zanone, who promptly curled the ball past Cameron Hall to put the visitors 1-0 up.
The Wells welcome Chatham Town to The Culverden on Saturday.
