THE Weston Under-18 squad is flying high having lifted both the Somerset Floodlight Youth League Premier Division Cup and the Roger Stone Memorial Cup all within two weeks of each other.

In a thrilling encounter with Taunton Town at the Viridor Stadium, the Seagulls scored two goals through Tyler Davis and were seemingly on their way to the first league title in a couple of years.

But Taunton Town scored twice in two minutes to make it 2-2. Both teams pressed hard for the winner and it came from George King, who scored in front of 150 supporters.

The cup last night was presented to the winning team by chairman Les Jordan.
