The third goal came when Anelay’s pass set up Cameron to slot home. A good counter attack started by Harrison was well finished by Baker from the edge of the penalty area for the fourth goal.

Kewstoke started strongly with some first touch efforts from Marc Frost and Thomas Lloyd Evans. James Adams, Kaylem Rowlands, James Biggs, Kieran Smith and Harry Walsh defended well to keep the visitors at bay.

The break came when Kewstoke mounted several attacks. Charlie Gibbons passed to Jake Harrison. His accurate through ball found Corey Kellaway, who netted on the second attempt after hitting the post.

The efforts of the whole team were rewarded with a goal which started from Rowlands at the back to Frost on the wing. His accurate pass to Payan found the foot of Josh Donoghue whose clean shot ensured the fourth win in a row for Kewstoke and kept their unbeaten home record intact.

UK Installations man of the match: James Biggs, improved performance: Jake Harrison, star of the week: Charlie Gibbons.

Kewstoke Juniors Under-15s won 5-1 at home to Backwell Wanderers.

Despite having the early play, Kewstoke went a goal behind when a shot flew over Luke Bryant’s head. The midfield of Jordan Sole, Ben Harris, Michael Deane and James Hodgkinson wrestled back the advantage in Kewstoke’s favour.

Syd Camper and Billy Judd both worked hard up front and were rewarded when Judd equalised from close range. Shortly after, Deane put Kewstoke 2-1 up with an outstanding header.

The defence were called up a number of times as Backwell refused to lie down. However, Lewis Clamp, Connor Andrew, Josh Selwyn, Lawrence Mayer and Luke Bryant in goal worked well together to ensure Kewstoke kept the lead.

Following a couple of tactical changes, Jake Groves and Tyler Marshman came on. Following a trip in the box, Judd just put Kewstoke 3-1 up from the spot. Shortly after, Judd completed his hat-trick when he calmly finished past the keeper. Harris added a fifth with a good finish to round off a good team performance.

SB Fencing man of the match was deservedly awarded to Michael Deane.

WINSCOMBE Under-11s had the first attempt on goal with Will Shergold seeing his shot gathered by the Backwell goalie.

There were further efforts from George Fairchild, James Hart and Matthew Gilmore. Theo Thornton-Matthews and Jack Drake were moved to midfield to support the attack as Winscombe pushed forward. Ben Lee played the first half in goal for Winscombe and looked comfortable and the game was goal-less at half-time.

After the break, Fairchild found James Ford in space who shot just wide and moments later Fairchild’s shot was saved well. At the other end, Backwell forced a save from regular Winscombe keeper Ben Meakin as both sides pushed for the opening goal.

In a scramble in the Winscombe penalty area, Meakin made a great save and Philip Skinnarland cleared the ball away. Substitute Lee was brought on and he latched on to a Toby Chambers through ball, but was just off target.

With 30 seconds left on the clock, a Winscombe mistake gave keeper Meakin no chance and Backwell the points.

Credit to the Winscombe back four of Piers Langford, Will Shergold, James Hart and man of the match Philip Skinnarland for a superb second half performance.

BANWELL Under-15s returned to league action with a 7-0 win against neighbours Hutton.

Banwell started brightly with Mbali Hanyana and Joe Gomm pulling the strings in midfield. The defence of Dan Cockle, Dan Butler, Andy Izzard, and Ben Stevens held firm, halting the Hutton frontline.

Dale Waite opened the scoring after good play by George Harris down the right. Harry Hornigold then fired in two before half-time as Banwell took control of the match.

Wingers Jordan Graham and George Harris saw plenty of the ball feeding the front men and keeper Jack Andrews ensured Banwell kept a clean sheet.

The second half saw Banwell extend their lead with a further two goals apiece for Dale Waite and Harry Hornigold.

Banwells Royal Mail man of the match went to Joe Gomm.

The Under-14s had their highest league win of the season, beating Burnbridge 9-0.

Banwell started brightly with the midfield of Ollie Habgood, Joe Brett, Ben Clatworthy and Aaron Staples taking control of the game.

Habgood opened the scoring for the second week running and captain Joe Brett scored a first half hat-trick to make it 4-0.

Defensively Banwell were again solid with Ethan Johnson, Joe Lawrence, Mitchell Collins and Sam Bond doing well.

In the second half, Banwell produced some great attacking play with Mike Rimes and Staples scoring their first goals for the team. Jake Thomas scored a great individual goal, beating three players before scoring.

Keeper Jordan Sotiris kept another clean sheet and it was left to man of the match Brett to score two more goals to make it five in the match.

WORLE Under-12s romped to a comfortable 8-1 victory against Swiss Valley Rangers in their final league match of the season.

Lucas Elliman opened the scoring and had a hand in the second as his shot hit the keeper and Nathan Bradbury netted. Alex Coghlan then set up the third for Jack and Lucas made it four.

Alex then stole the show with a four minute hat-trick with three great strikes. He also crossed in a corner which a Swiss Valley player unfortunately headed into his own net.

Four substitutions were made at the break and Swiss got a consolation goal to make the final score 8-1. Man of the match was Alex Coghlan.

HUTTON Under-13s took on Long Ashton in the cup semi-final and won 3-1.

The midfield of Josh Pratt, James Difford, Nathan James and James Chudley started to win their battles and play the strikers in with some good through balls.

Hutton struck the first blow when striker Zak Westwood latched onto a weak pass out of defence and fired into the top corner for his 18th goal of the season.

Goalkeeper Oliver Edwards had a quiet game and in defence, the Hutton rearguard of Alex Kilpatrick, Stefan Thomson-Rose, Dan Cox and George Thorne coped admirably.

Hutton were starting to find their groove when confusion in the middle led to the ball bouncing in the Hutton box and the Long Ashton striker reacted the quickest to square things up at 1-1.

Again, Hutton reshaped and started to get on top and just on half-time, a great run from Pratt saw him upended by a Long Ashton defender and the resulting free kick was superbly whipped into the box from Chudley for striker Matty Jones to coolly flick a deft header to go in at half-time 2-1 up.

The second half was closely fought and praise goes to Difford for his battling performance. Nathan James had his best game for Hutton, setting up many Hutton attacks.

With minutes remaining, Hutton made an inspired substitution when Ryan Jefferies came on to replace James and soon made an impact when he won the ball just outside the box and rifled in a superb effort to wrap the game up.

Special thanks go to match officials and young referee Joe Gordon, assistants John Major and young Jamie Chambers, who officiated.

The A 2 Z Gardening & Tree Maintenance man of the match went to Nathan James.

WESTON Crusaders Under-11s cruised to a comfortable win over Burnbridge Wanderers having dominated this match from start to finish.

Although Burnbridge battled well, they could not contain Crusaders and only the woodwork, last ditch defending and some great saves from their goalkeeper kept the score down.

The midfield of Jones, Rac, Thomas-Barker, Tilsley, Thomas and Morteo controlled the game, with Havard and Denyer running their socks off up front. The back three of Redding, Williams and Buxton dealt with what little was thrown at them and goalkeeper Filby seldom called into action.

First half goals were scored by Denyer, Morteo and Havard, with Tilsley, Havard and Denyer adding to the total in the second half. Replacement goalkeeper Burgess had one save in the second half and that came from a Burnbridge free kick.

THIRD Division Weston Town lost 4-2 to first division leaders Burnham United in a thrilling cup semi-final.

Weston outfought their opponents for long periods of the first-half and were rewarded when centre forward Dan Berry hit a good shot across the keeper and into the corner of the net.

The cup upset looked on when a 30 yard shot from Joe Rout flew into the top corner to give Town a 2-0 lead at the break.

The second half saw Burnham raise their game and they quickly pounced on a couple of half chances to level the game. There were excellent performances from Jordan Hodge and Ben Sampson, but Burnham’s pressure told and they added two good goals to progress to the final.

Weston can take great encouragement from their fantastic cup run and manager Nigel Adams told the players how proud he was for their superb effort. The Weston Super Frames man of the match went to Michael Obriens.
