Weston Under-19s 3 Oxford United 2

FOLLOWING last season’s promotion, Weston Under-19s are top of the Premier Division of the Football Conference Youth League.

The Seagulls youngsters gave themselves the ideal start when Robbie Maggs fired home with a smart shot from the edge of the area on three minutes.

Little was seen of the visitors as an attacking force in the opening hour, but when Alan Musoke muscled in behind Jory Cureton, the home side where indebted to keeper Daniel Jackson who made a smart one-handed save.

It became 3-0 and the game seemingly over in first half injury time when a defence splitting ball from Cuereton put Maggs through on goal. The visiting keeper made a magnificent save Maggs’s effort, but Markus Bail was on hand to bundle home the loose ball.
