Uphill Castle sealed promotion from Division Two West of the Somerset County League courtesy of a fine victory at Nailsea United.

Perhaps fittingly for manager Anthony Askins it was son Jack who played a pivotal role in the win at the Grove Sports Centre. He scored a hat-trick and was joined on the score sheet by Sydney Camper.
