THE Sports Active Seagulls Community Trust held its first county walking football tournament @Worle.
Weston, Clevedon and Yeovil all took part with the winners of the tournament going on to represent Somerset in the regional tournament.
The first game saw Weston take on Clevedon. After a slow start Weston found themselves a goal down. A well organised Clevedon team were in good form and some great saves by goalkeeper Rob Coles kept Weston in with a chance, but Weston could not find an equaliser.
The second game saw Clevedon Town take on Yeovil and just before half-time Yeovil took the lead with an excellent strike from 25 yards. Despite Clevedon’s best efforts, they were unable to score and the game finished 2-0 to Yeovil.
