Clevedon returned to winning ways with a thumping victory over Burnham in the Somerset Cup.

Clevedon 59 pts

Burnham 7 pts

This was a welcome win for Clevedon in this Somerset Cup tie.

Both sides took this match as an opportunity to blood youngsters and made for some entertaining stuff.

The Seasiders opened the scoring with a fine try from Mason Parslow, converted by Adam Coles. From the restart, Clevedon recycled the ball well allowing Cameron Maslen to break the Burnham defence and put young hooker Jack Crew in under the posts, converted again by Coles.

Clevedon went further ahead when forward pressure produced a penalty try at scrum time 21-0. Burnham were rewarded with a converted try after some good interplay. In the time left before the break, tries from Joey Tucker and No 8 Gary Carpenter increased the lead to 31-7.

The second half started the same as the previous 40 minutes with Parslow finishing a fine handling move converted by Coles. Clevedon’s offloading was rewarded with another try shortly afterwards from Maslen, converted by Coles.

The home side rung the changes from the bench consisting of teenagers and it was replacement scrum-half Adam Warren who sneaked over on the blindside for a try converted again by Coles. Maslen had the last say with and intercepted converted try.

Head coach Nick Hill said: “It was good to a get a win and gain some much-needed confidence and being able to give the youngsters a chance to prove themselves is always pleasing.”

On Saturday, Clevedon are away to Matson, coach leaves 11am.
