Clevedon Town Under-18s claimed top spot in the Somerset Under-18s Floodlit League after their latest victory.

CLEVEDON Town Under-18s went top of the Somerset Under-18s Floodlit League after beating Welton Rovers 2-0.

Coach Mark Williams was keen for his charges to continue their great form and they delivered in style. It was Clevedon who looked the stronger throughout and with keeper James Dunn on brilliant form, any Welton attacks were soundly dealt with.

Town went 1-0 up early on in the first-half after Jordan Edwards broke through the

Welton defence to finish well. The second goal again came from Edwards after he coolly finished for his brace.

There were excellent performances from Dunn, Hewlett, Parsons and Edwards.

Worcester City Under-18s 4

WITH Worcester City at the top of Junior Premier League table, Town were keen to unsettle the leaders early on

With a full squad to select from, Williams was able to field a strong side, including new signing Adam Buckley.

Worcester moved the ball around well and Town were under pressure for the first 10 minutes before a great pass from Joe Cattermole found Edwards who took a great first touch before finding the bottom corner.

Worcester were soon back in the game after a ball into the box was judged to have been handled by a Town defender and a penalty awarded. Now inspired by the equaliser, Worcester broke through the Town defence to go 2-1 ahead. Town soon equalised following a sublime pass from Joe Teall was met by debutant Buckley who finished well.

A couple of changes from Williams at the break seemed to work in Town’s favour as they took the lead from another penalty, tucked away by Edwards. With Town looking in control, Edwards claimed his hat-trick with a well taken goal. The home side continued to press the Worcester goal and Buckley claimed his brace following some excellent footwork

Worcester continued to battle while Town sat back on the lead and they scored two quick goals to take it into a tense last 10 minutes at 5-4. The pressure was eased when a great ball by Jordan Edwards was well finished to take his tally to four goals.

An excellent team performance saw Joe Teall, Sam Pinder and Jordan Edwards all give outstanding performances.
