Weston youth have an outside chance of lifting the Somerset Floodlight Youth League Premier Division title.

WITH five minutes left to play at Wordsworth Drive, Taunton, the Somerset Floodlight Youth League Premier Division crown looked to be heading to Chard Town.

The Robins led their hosts 2-1 and the league secretary had the trophy ready at the side of the pitch.

With four minutes remaining, a penalty gave the Peacocks a share of the spoils they deserved and gave the smallest of chances to Weston to mount a late and unlikely challenge for the title.

The Seagulls knew that they would have to win two tough fixtures on the road at Tiverton Town and Taunton Town if they were to overhaul Chard.
