Weston Town Under-14s remained unbeaten in clinching the Division 2 title.
WESTON Town Under-14s have been crowned Division 2 winners and finished a fantastic season by remaining unbeaten in securing a hard-fought draw away at Burnbridge.
Weston were the more composed side on the ball and they were rewarded midway through the half when a shot from Ben Sampson came off the bar and dropped to Daniel Berry who slotted home.
Weston continued to carve out the better chances with good approach play coming through Sam Fletcher, but they were unable to add to there lead.
The second half continued in similar fashion with Weston restricting Burnbridge to long range efforts, which keeper Killian Vick dealt with comfortably.
However, he was powerless to stop a fantastic free kick which brought the sides level and a draw was a fair result.
Congratulations to manager Nigel Adams and all the boys for their efforts throughout the season. The Mercedes Benz man of the match award went to Sam Fletcher.
WESTON Crusaders Under-15s finished the season in style, beating league winners Portishead 3-1 to clinch runners-up spot and taking points off Portishead for the first time in nine years.
The first half was an even affair with Dylan York putting the home side ahead before Portishead equalled late in the half.
Crusaders were the stronger and more disciplined side in the second half, with Rhys Spurling scoring the second and Omar Al-Hinai scoring the third. Keeper Ben Abraham made a couple of great saves late in the game to keep Portishead at bay.
It has been a good season for the team, finishing second in the league and losing on penalties in the cup semi-final. The team also went to Holland on tour and returned as champions, winning the Nymegen Easter Cup.
