Clevedon United’s under-15 girls booked a place in the Somerset League cup final with a thrilling 4-3 victory over Purnell.

They fell behind early on, but Roseanna sent the ball through to Leah to slot home an equaliser.

Purnell regained the lead, only for Jade to fire a superb free-kick into the top corner and square matters for a second time.

And after falling behind for a third time, Clevedon saw a long throw-in from Evie fall to Maisy to make it 3-3 at half-time

Purnell hit the post twice in the second half and Clevedon struck the crossbar, before Maisy slotted home Maria's cross to clinch victory.

Club spokesman Paul Ryan said: "Each player stepped up their quality and effort for this game. The entire team received girl of the match."

Clevedon: Roseanna, Abi, Eleni, Evie, Holly, Tia, Daisy, Iva, Maria, Maisy, Jade, Charlotte, Leah.
