Milton Nomads Under-10s completed a league and cup double with a 3-0 cup final victory over Isle of Wedmore.

HAVING already secured the Woodspring Junior League title, Milton Nomads Under-10s took part in the Woodspring Junior League Cup final determined to retain the trophy.

Between Nomads and a historic double, stood an Isle of Wedmore team looking to avenge their defeat 12 months earlier.

In a tightly-contested first-half, Nomads were first to strike when Maskell broke in from his flank taking a reverse pass from Salmon and flashed a shot into the back of the net.

Nomads quickly doubled their lead when Smith strode out of defence and slotted a ball into Jones, who held off the Wedmore defence before finding Salmon to fire into the roof of the net at the second attempt to leave the half-time score 2-0 to Nomads.

You may also want to watch:

At the start of the second half, Wedmore appeared to increase the pressure on Nomads, but the regular defensive pairing of Smith and Williams were in control at the back, limiting Wedmore to just one shot on goal, which was turned around the post by Tasker in goal.

Coach Rob Salmon introduced Haycock and Pearce into the game which immediately paid dividends when, after Williams had intercepted a Wedmore attack, they linked to set up Gauci who blasted Nomads further ahead.

BURNHAM United Under-15s capped off a fantastic double winning season by beating Weston Crusaders 6-1 in the Woodspring League Cup final held at Ham Green.

Burnham started the game nervously and Crusaders went 1-0 up. Burnham were quickly on the level terms with a goal from Rosser, his 36th goal of the season. United went into the break 3-1 up with Podbury following up a free kick and Jefferies finishing off a flowing move.

Kidner was next to get on the score sheet before fine long-range strikes from Harding and Partridge completing the scoring.

Burnham had already won the league, finishing nine points of second place Portishead. In the 22 games played this season, Burnham won 21 and drawn one and in the process had scored a total of 121 goals and only conceded 13.

Manager Carl James said: “I am very proud of the boy’s achievements and thank them for their hard work in every game, they have been a pleasure to manage. We would also like to thank Barrington and Sons Solicitors for their kind sponsorship of our kit.”
