Worle Under-9s have won three awards in the Somerset North Youth Football Gold League.

WORLE Under-9s have made a real impact by winning the Somerset North Youth Football Gold League, along with the Golden Glove award for least goals conceded and to top it off, the players swept the respect award too.

The team, managed by Matthew Bazell have been together for just a year, but have been working hard on improving their game. Matt was rightfully proud of his team’s achievements, but heaped praise onto the players who were voted the nicest team by the other teams participating in the competition.

Matt would also like to thanks all the parents who gave up their time to come and support the players at the events.

Club chairman Dave Stephens added: “We are very proud of our newest team, not only for their success, but the way they have done it. The club would also like to pass on our thanks to all of the organisers of the newly-formed league for all their efforts in getting such a huge event up and running.”

ILLNESS left Weston Crusaders Colts Under-11s with just eight players as they visited Burnbridge.

Most Read

Burnbridge dominated territory, but created little in the first-half as Edward Land, Ruben Cumberbatch and Cameron Morgan-Roberts worked hard in midfield. Callum Plaistow made one great stop and Hayden Scarrott defending well on the goal line.

Against the run of play, Colts opened the scoring minutes in the second half when Daniel Hall hit a great free kick into the top corner.

Burnbridge equalised when a high ball fell almost vertically under the Crusaders crossbar.

Now under almost relentless pressure, captain Finnley Greenwood led by example, helped by Corey Campbell’s timely interceptions. In the end, Burnbridge managed to score the winner.

The Under-12s entertained top of the table Nailsea United and despite the blustery conditions, both teams played excellent football.

Charlie broke through early on and outpaced the defence to score the opener and a superb corner from Reece was volleyed home by Churchill.

The defence of Thomas, Ben and Blondie battled hard, as did the midfield of Ethan, Snedds, Reece and Joel, while Churchill led the line well up front.

Lewis stepped up to play in goal and made some quality saves and distributed the ball well. Nailsea continued to play football, but Crusaders stood firm and were unlucky not to score few.

Man of the match sponsored by Wayne Coombes Decorating went to Churchill.

A CHANGED Hutton Under-10 squad travelled to Cheddar Valley for their latest league fixture.

The squad consisted of Lewis Sloan, Jack Buckingham, Jack Busby, Scott Hammond-Lumber, Sid Sheppard-Sugg, Jacob Dwyer, Tommy Carter, Jack Harris, Owen Janes and Bailey Hughes.

The first goal came after Hutton’s 10th corner when relentless pressure forced an own goal. The game was played in Cheddar’s half with Hammond-Lumber getting the second from a shot outside the box and Sloan netted the third with a fine shot.

The second half saw fantastic defending from Cheddar and coincided with Hutton being unable to get a shot on target. The fourth goal came from a free kick when Hammond-Lumber shot low into the corner of the goal.
