Gillingham Town 0
WITH Weston’s three leading goalscorers (Kailan Gould, Tyler Davis and George King) all called up to the first team squad, Weston’s reshuffled side illustrated their strength in depth.
They recorded an emphatic victory over one-time table-toppers Gillingham Town to ramp up the pressure on the leaders in the Premier Division of the Somerset Floodlight Youth League.
Jack Goodell and Antigua and Barbuda Under-17 international Taryn Selway-Joseph were called up from the club’s Under-16s and did their claims for future inclusion no harm, along with Lucas Ellman and Daniel O’ Leary.
Daniel O’Leary netted a hat-trick, after good work by William Arnold and Jack Carey, who scored the fourth goal. Mateusz Trybull scored the goal of the evening from a stunning 25-yard free-kick before Jack Goodell rounded off the scoring.
The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Capille Construction Ltd, was awarded to Daniel O’ Leary.
