The Weston & District League saw its first four cup finals played at the weekend.

Haywood Village met West Wick Res in the Bob Keyes Cup at Worle and fell behind as Lee Harvey netted for the Wickermen.

Adam Haysom saved a Wick penalty before Kev Cosham levelled from the spot at the other end and Richard Powell sealed a 2-1 win for the Villagers.

Swiss Valley Rangers came from behind to beat Berrow 2-1 after extra time in the Challenge Cup as Lewis Torrington and Harry Smith, with his 38th goal in 23 games, netted.

That allowed them to complete a double under player-manager Joe Boardman and coach Paul MacLoughlin and chairman Paul Gibson is looking forward to competing in Division Two next season.
