Axbridge Saxons Under-12s won the Burnbridge Wanderers annual tournament, despite losing their first match.

They went on to win their next six straight matches to become tournament champions. After the early disappointment, Saxons bounced back winning their remaining Group A fixtures against Locking 3-0, Max Helps, Faith Bedford and Adam Bulman scoring, Burnbridge Wanderers 5-0 (Helps 4, Bedford) and Wembdon 3-1 (Bedford, Helps 2).

Strong defending by Seth Delap left keeper Tom Vallance with little to do. Josh Higgins also put in a strong performance on the left wing.

In the semi-final, Helps snatched a late winner to set up a rematch against Cheddar in the final, after they overcame Priory Pumas.

With school bragging rights at stake, Axbridge took the lead when Helps headed a Bulman cross into the net. With seconds remaining, Saxons forced a corner and Bedford side-footed home from close range to settle the tie.

Nine goals from Max Helps earned him the tournament golden boot.
