Banwell Under-13s defeated Portishead to clinch the league title.

Banwell Under-13s won their first league title as a team with a thrilling display of attacking football at Portishead.

Winning their 13th league game in a row, they secured the league title with a game to spare.

A hat-trick from dynamic winger Jack Starling, two goals from hard-working striker Dylan Lyons, and goals from star midfielders Tyler Pitts and captain Thomas Davis secured the three points, but it was another total team performance from the away side that was the most thrilling aspect of the win.

All credit for the 7-1 win and the title, must go to managers Ashley White and Tom Hall, who have moulded these players into a team that plays fine attacking football.
