NORTH Somerset Under-13s football team have reached the semi-final of the National Cup.

They defeated Havering in North London, in the quarter-finals and won an exciting encounter on penalties after the match ended 0-0 at full-time.

After a three hour journey to north east London, North Somerset started well and tested the Havering keeper when Dan Howard played the ball through to Sol, but the keeper was not troubled. A superb dummy from Sol left Taryn free, but his shot saved by the keeper.

Lucas Elliman and Joe Rout had a couple of long range shots before Rout was replaced by Jordan Palmer. Then it was Kieran’s turn to come to the rescue, with a great save as the half ended 0-0.
