The Under-13s returned from Bishops Lydeard with a 3-5 defeat, despite Maisy scoring a hat-trick.

After 15 minutes of Clevedon pressure, Bishops worked their way back into the game and opened the scoring, soon followed by another two.

After half-time, Clevedon struggled to clear the ball from two corners, conceding from each. This spurred the visitors on and they turned the tables on Bishops with wave upon wave of pressure and Bishops started conceding, with the lively Maisy completing a hat-trick.

As Clevedon pushed forward, the team were left open to a counter and just before the end, Bishops scored again.

The team of Roseanna, Abi, Eleni, Evie, Tia, Phoebe, Holly, Aimee, Maria, Leah, Iva and Maisy all played extremely well, with debutant Sophie gaining girl of the match, just ahead of the lively Leah and Maisy.

Following last week’s disappointing team performance and loss to Ashton, Swiss Valley Rangers Under-12 Girls were keen to put things right playing away at Bradley Stoke.

Jas and Cec, were asked to hold a deep midfield position along with Kaylin and Amelia, while Celia played up front for the first time.

Two goals from Kaylin, one from Jas and Celia helped to seal a convincing 4-0 win. Girl of the match Alice played her best match to date.
