Winscombe Undr-18 2

WESTON won the Somerset Floodlit Youth League Cup thanks to an injury-time goal in an entertaining end-to-end contest.

Weston opened the scoring on 19 minutes when, from Chris Taylor's deep corner, Nick Jones beat Winscombe keeper Callum Murray with a lob from the edge of the penalty area.

The sides were level again on 56 minutes when Evan Day powered in a header from a corner and the game looked to be heading for extra time until skipper Grubb burst through on the left, cut in on the bye-line and set up Dan Hartley for a close-range tap-in.
