A hat-trick by Jack Rickwood helped seal the leaguae title for Milton Nomads Under-14s.
MILTON Nomads Under-14s achieved the season’s target of winning the Division 2 title on their home pitch after beating Cheddar Valley 5-2.
Nomads took an early lead when Matthew Frost scored from a corner by Ryan Pugh. Nomads were pushed back by a confident Cheddar side, who were rewarded with an equaliser before half-time.
Cheddar continued their good form and took the lead early in the second half, but Nomads responded like true champions and with the defence of Charlie Woodards in goal and Tyler Pooley, Lewis Milkins and Jack Rickwood holding firm, this allowed the midfield of Dean Chrisostomou, Drew Hodges, Sam Parkinson, Avasi Lucas, George Harris-Aucott and Lewis Barber to get back to dominating the game.
When Rickwood scored from a corner, he followed it up with a penalty and a fabulous headed goal from a corner by Jacob Flavell to complete his hat-trick.

UPHILL Castle Under-16s were slow to the ball in the first 30 minutes as Cheddar showed more urgency.
Uphill hardly broke into the opposition half and Cheddar were rewarded for their effort with two well-taken goals. The first one came as a strong shot beat Major in the Uphill goal.
The second, five minutes later was a ball over the top and another well-taken strike. Uphill made three substitutions and they improved their performance.
Tom Stephens made an immediate impact as he has ran onto Chamberlain’s great pass and finished well.
Uphill continued their good play in the second half and Stephens made it 2-2 with his second of the match with another fine strike. Cheddar had a goal disallowed as the ball had gone out from the corner after Cheddar had headed it home.
TBone nearly won the match for Uphill when he was through one-on-one with the keeper, but his rushed shot went over the bar. A good game was played in a fine spirit and well managed by referee Mark Smith.
Seymour Roofing man of the match was Tom Stephens.
