Clevedon Town Under 18’s brought the curtain down on a fantastic season for the whole club by clinching the Western Counties Floodlight Youth League in dramatic circumstances after they won two games in a week to secure the trophy.

Town took on Hallen first before heading to Welton for their last game of the season.

There was huge additional pressure on Town’s Monday night game against Hallen because, had they lost, the best Clevedon could have hoped for in the table would have been a disappointing third.

Right from the off Clevedon never let that happen, opening the scoring in the third minute when Bodhi Archer’s cross was turned in at close range by Joe Smith.

Alarm bells started to ring when Hallen equalized in the 26th minute, but soon Clevedon were back in front when the ball was swept out to skipper Sol Kent wide on the right and his inch perfect cross saw Archer make it 2-1.

Just before half time Clevedon gave themselves a two goal cushion with a similar move when another cross from the right by Kent saw Smith arrive to tuck the ball in off the post to make it 3-1.

With Henry Westlake and Kent pulling the strings Clevedon continued to dominate in the second half and on 70 minutes James Tait smashed the ball home to give Clevedon a comfortable 4-1 win.

The action then moved to Thursday with the Seasiders at Welton and Weston-super-Mare at Portishead.

Clevedon nerves were eventually calmed in the 25th minute when a quick Liam Hacker throw sent Smith racing clear again to shoot past the advancing Welton keeper Tom Crouch.

At half time Town led 1-0 with news from Portishead that it was still goalless, so advantage Clevedon at the halfway point.

Then despite news that Weston had conceded at Portishead, Clevedon went further ahead again when Sam Ledward sent Smith through to muscle his way past two Welton defenders and shoot past Crouch.

Welton had a couple more chances, but it didn’t matter in the end as Clevedon triumphed 2-0 and with the best defence, best goal difference and most points they finished deserved league champions.

The only downside was that the league took the trophy to Portishead so Clevedon will have to wait until Tuesday for a special presentation at 7pm at the Everyone Active Hand Stadium.
