Burnham Under-16s are through to the county semi-finals after a 5-0 victory over Pen Mill.

BURNHAM Under-16s made it through to the semi-finals of the county cup with a convincing 5-0 win against Pen Mill.

Playing with the wind at their backs in the first-half, Burnham were out of their blocks quickly with Podbury producing an inswinging corner to give Partridge a tap-in. There were several near misses before Rosser scored a brace to make the score 3-0 at half-time.

Against the wind in the second half, the defence of Durrant, Costello and White defended well. Burnham continued to dominate midfield with Partridge, Harding, Kinder and Hughes all having fine games.

It was no surprise when further goals followed with Rosser scoring another two bringing his total to four for the afternoon.

Nailsea came out of the blocks quickly and a defensive mix-up saw them go 1-0 up early on. With the wind at their backs, Nailsea pressurised and only a few excellent

saves from Harry kept them out until they poked home a second from a corner. Crusaders showed more determination with Joel, Lewis, Reece, Snedds and James all going close to getting one back before Joel diverted the ball past the keeper before half-time.

The second half saw Crusaders create more chances, although Nailsea continued to threaten on the counter. Churchill, Charlie and Ethan all went close before Churchill steered home a well-directed Ethan free kick as the match ended 2-2.

Thomas defended well and Tom worked hard in midfield, but the man of the match, sponsored by Wayne Coombes Decorating, went too Reece Coombes.

LEAGUE leaders Hutton Juniors Under-10s entertained second-placed Banwell without their talisman midfielder Jack Busby.

Hutton took the lead through Carter shooting from the edge of the box and Dwyer got a second to make it 2-0 at the break.

In the second half, Hutton hit the woodwork seven times until a shot by Hammond-Lumber with the help of Sheppard-Sugg got the third goal.

The team were still in discussion as to who scored the goal, when Banwell netted a breakaway goal to make it 3-1 to Hutton.
