Weston Town Under-13s gained promotion after defeating Axbridge.

WESTON Town Under-13s travelled to Axbridge knowing that a victory would guarantee them promotion into Division 1.

Weston were at full strength and set about Axbridge right from the first whistle and it didn’t take long for Town to take the lead when Heal’s cross was netted by Bambury.

The defence marshalled by Manaton, Swires, Murphy and Sharp were rarely troubled in a dominant first-half, thanks to the midfield shield of Pritchet and Kelly working tirelessly.

Thomas and Large got wide early allowing space for the front men and Town doubled their lead when Manaton headed home Heal’s corner.

Much like the first-half, Weston started the second period on top and Pritchet harried an Axbridge defender. Thomas passed back to Large from the touchline who crossed for Maidment to score.

Snell in goal was rarely troubled as Town scored again as a neat lay-off from Manaton saw Pritchet score into the far corner.
