WESTON Town Under-15s produced an excellent team performance to win 2-0 against Cheddar Valley Dynamos.

Weston were keen to get off to a good start and they took the lead midway through the first-half when Kristian Bell unleashed a long-range effort into top of the net. Killian Vick then made a couple of good stops to keep Weston’s lead intact at the break.

The second half saw Weston on the back foot for the opening exchanges, but with Jack Hockey marshalling the back four, they restricted Cheddar to long-range efforts.

Weston created several good openings before Bell jinked his way into the box and squared for Daniel Berry to fire home for a well-deserved three points.

The Cove Restaurant man of the match went to Bradley Willis.

The Under-13s were still looking for their first home win of the season, with the only other points in the season coming with a victory at St George.

Weston opened the scoring when Bayley Royal lobbed the keeper after two minutes, but Burnham soon equalised. In an end-to-end game, Weston took the lead with two goals from Matt Doyle.

Burnham reduced the deficit, only for Doyle to score a minute later for his hat-trick and eighth goal of the season to make the score 4-3 at the break.

The second half saw Royle add his second to make it 5-3 and Burnham again closed the gap, only for Weston to give themselves more breathing space when Jack Humphries netted a sixth.

In a tense end to the game, Burnham pressed and at 6-5 nearly equalised, but for some good defending and a great save by Conner Aspinall.

WORLE Under-14s won this game against Priory Rangers in the first 35 minutes, eventually winning 5-1.

Worle took the lead when Lucas’ corner was met at the near post by Hugh. Connor doubled the lead with a great run and shot. Lucas made it three with a great strike and Aaron’s shot took a wicked deflection to make it 4-0. On the stroke of half-time, Aaron made it five with a fine strike.

The second half saw Worle dig in to clinch the three points with Rangers getting a consolation goal from a corner. Trowbridge Plumbing & Heating man of the match was Hugh Parry.

BURNHAM Under-15s won 7-0 against a plucky Weston Town side.

United were quickly into their stride and were 3-0 up by half-time with goals from Rosser, Hughes and Kidner.

In the second half, the same scorers doubled their tally with Fouracres adding the seventh goal. This a fine team display and with key defenders missing credit must go to White, Costello, Podbury and goalie Manlow for keeping another clean sheet. Barrington and Sons Solicitors man of the match was Dan Rosser.

The Under-15s took another step towards regaining the Division 1 league title with a 5-1 victory over battling Backwell. In a low-key affair, Burnham were slow to get going in the first-half, but went 2-0 up with goals from Rosser and Hughes. Backwell replied with a goal on the stroke of half-time.

Burnham were much better in the second half and hit the bar three times and some heroic goal keeping kept the score line down with further goals from Rosser, Fouracres and a late White penalty.

Barrington and Sons Solicitors man of the match was Charlie Hughes.

MILTON Nomads Under-12s lost at home for the first time this season against Kewstoke Juniors 3-0.

Kewstoke started well with some strong attacks resulting in some good saves by the Nomads keeper Charlie Woodards. Kewstoke opened the scoring early in the first-half and scored a second before half-time.

Nomads could not find the form which had taken them to the top of the league and although George Harris-Aucott and Jacob Flavell linked well with George Darch up front, they could not find a way through a solid Kewstoke defence.

Good work by Nomads midfield of Cai Williams, Lewis Milkins, Olly Cunningham, Harry Spencer and Dean Chrisostomou kept pushing Nomads forward but to no avail.

Nomads tried to up the tempo in the second half with the defensive line of Charlie Woodards in goal and Lewis Barber, Tyler Pooley, Harry Little, Jack Rickwood and George Fulcher holding firm.

Kewstoke finished off the scoring with a third goal midway through the second. Trilec Comms Services man of the match was Lewis Barber.

The Under-12s won a hard-fought battle at home to Swiss Valley Rangers.

Nomads started well with an early goal scored by Jacob Flavell straight from a corner. Another great corner from Jacob was headed home by George Darch and Cai Williams added a third from a close range shot.

Nomads added a fourth soon after the break with a goal from Darch. Swiss Valley responded and were rewarded when Nomads conceded a goal, but with the defence of Lewis Barber, Harry Spencer, Tyler Pooley, Harry Little, George Fulcher, Jack Rickwood and Charlie Woodards in goal holding firm, Nomads got a fifth when Darch completed his hat-trick.

Nomads then lost their way and Swiss Valley scored three times in five minutes to set up a tense finish, but Nomads held on to win 5-4.

Trilec Comms Services man of the match was George Darch.

Milton Nomads would like to express their thanks to David Peplow of M4MQS for supplying their new kit and his continued support.
