A TRIO of wonder goals from Dan Smith, 
interspersed with a fine team goal finished off by Ben Edney saw Nailsea United Under-14s capitalise on their dominance in this entertaining game against Clevedon.

Blair Teanby, Ben Latta and George King also impressed as Nailsea start to hit form just in time for the cup final in a few weeks.

The Under-10s A and Clevedon United served up a great contest, with Nailsea running out 1-0 winners.

Despite many chances for both sides, the score was 0-0 at the break. It took a goal from Nat Pinkney for Nailsea to finally break the deadlock.

But Clevedon were as determined as ever to get back into the game and it took tremendous effort from the whole Nailsea team to ensure all three points were theirs. Man of the match for Nailsea was Will Hodges.

In the B game, Clevedon started with a goal within the first minute, but Nailsea kept their heads and soon equalised with a terrific run and finish from Finlay Williams.

Another goal from Nailsea following a corner was superbly finished by Ben Tooth, but 
Clevedon though hit back to win 4-2.

Man of the match for Nailsea went to Finlay Williams.

A RAMPAGING performance from Portishead Under-12s proved too much for a bewildered Yatton side.

Indeed the luckless hosts found themselves two goals down in as many minutes, Tyler Manning proving too sharp on both occasions. Yatton had no answer to Portishead’s fluent passing game and before the break Portishead rattled up a further four goals, two from the alert Toby Hart and quality strikes from Luke Osgood and Hugo Miles.

After the break, experimental changes and a dogged Yatton response inevitably disrupted the rhythm and shape of the visitors set up. Despite controlling much of the second period, further scores eluded Portishead and it was the home side who forced a consolation goal near the 

Man of the match was Oskar Todd.

The Under-12s continued their impressive late season run with another convincing performance, beating Weston Town 4-1.

Oskar Todd was the man of the moment with a well-executed first half hat-trick. Luke Osgood scored the other goal in the first half. Great performances throughout epitomised the strength within the squad but it was James McCall who won the nod for man of the match.

James Robinson continued his fine form this season and there were prominent individual displays from Tyler Ashmead, Lewis Harvey and the excellent Hugo Miles.

The second half saw some experimental changes with keeper Will Bennett showing good aptitude up front.

ST GEORGE Easton-in-Gordano Under-14s championship-winning season came to a close with a resounding 8-2 win over Weston Town.

George Peters opened the scoring in the first 10 seconds, soon followed by a goal from Haydon Cole. However, Weston scored a goal to make it 2-1 at the break.

After the interval, St George quickly reasserted control. Jack Joseph scored from a Cole through ball, Dan Steven volleyed in a Ben Stitfall corner and Stitfall then netted the first of his two goals. In between these two, Rob Lange slotted in after a Peter’s shot was deflected and Peters scored his second of the game when he followed up on a mistake from a fierce Lewis Cosway shot to make the final score 8-2.

St George finish the season with a record of played 18, won 16, drawn one, with a goal difference of 76.

CLEVEDON United Under-9 Panthers battled hard against league leaders Yatton, but lost 3-0.

Harry Johns was excellent in goal and there was great midfield action from Joe Wynne.

In the game against Berrow, Clevedon lost 2-0. There was strong defence by Nathan Turner and Ewan Linnett. Ollie Burns, Rhys Cunningham and Owen Vowles all played well. Connor Lowis had a good game and Joe Pass was unlucky not to score.

The Under 11s probably gave their best performance of the year against Backwell Athletic, winning 3-0.

Billy Blackall and Dan Hearn led the play from midfield, Oliver Wilson created the opening for James Williams to score the first, Kieran Moore the second and then Cain Myford-Gibson tucked home the third, whilst Toby Petteford kept his goal tight for a clean sheet. Man of the match was Joe Turner.

The Under-11s were on top from the start against Priory Pumas and again it was Oliver Wilson setting up the opener for James 

Despite several chances Priory held firm. The second half was more even and top defending from Thomas Clarke and Joe Ritchie backed up by in-form keeper Toby Petteford kept it tight.

Wilson battled hard to get the second goal, and deserved the man of the match award. A well-taken free kick saw Priory pull a goal back.

Clevedon’s season finished with them 
claiming 10 points from the last possible 12, helping their position in the league dramatically.

YATTON Athletic Under-11 keeper Chandler Kowolskie made a great save early on in their game against Nailsea.

Lucas Mortimer scored for Yatton before half-time. After the break, Mortimer scored another before George Frost netted two more for Yatton.

Yatton’s man of the match was awarded to Harry Parsons.
