CLEVEDON United Colts Under-9s and St George produced a great game of football.

It was a superb performance from all the team which was not reflected in the final score. Special mentions go to Joe Pass who was unlucky not to score, Rhys Cunningham who gave a gritty performance and to man of the match Connor Lowis.

The Under-10s A began well against Burnham and took a deserved lead through man of the match Liam Smallwood.

They were able to keep the lead to half-time with a combination of excellent teamwork and good goalkeeping from Scott Ford.

Burnham scored two early goals in the second half and looked likely to go on to win. However, Clevedon showed lots of character and equalised through a great goal from Dane Richardson.

In the B game, Burnham were the first to score. Lewis Smith soon equalised for Clevedon and good goalkeeping from Jordan Williams helped to keep the scores level at half-time.

Clevedon played strongly in the second half and scored deserved goals through Louis Jones and player of the match Beth Barzotelli (2). Thanks to strong defending from Max Manners, Clevedon were able to defend their lead and earn a good win.

n YATTON Under-11s took the lead early on against Portishead with two goals from Sam Starr.

A third goal came after the Portishead goalie made a great save, only for Yatton’s Lucas Mortimer to score. Portishead scored a great goal before half-time.

After the break, Yatton were awarded a penalty with Lucas Finnegan netting in the bottom corner. Portishead upped their game, breaking through Yatton’s defence to score a second. Yatton’s Finnegan played the ball through to Mortimer to score his second and Yatton’s fifth.

Yatton man of the match was awarded to Adam Milward.
