A fifth goal of the season for striker Charlie Bateson lifted Yeovil Town Under-18s up to second in the South West Counties Youth League with a 1-0 win at Bath City.
The frontman struck after just four minutes of the match played at Twerton Park, a venue where the Glovers’ first team have crossed swords with the Romans on many occasions – albeit not for quite a number of years.
The result pushes Matt Percival’s side on to 11 points which puts the second, five points behind leaders Bridgwater United who have played a game more.
Yeovil Town Under-18s: Robert Hollard, Max Dyer, Jacob Shore, Harrison Foster, Jake Graziano, Sam Hodges, Mason Hunter, Jack Bareham (for Alex Stevens, 60), Mason Alden (for Ethan O’Sullivan, 60), Charlie Bateson (for Joshua Haskett, 85), Benjani Junior (for Joshua Sutton, 80).
In the Junior Premier League, the club’s Under-14s picked up a win over Bridgwater but there were defeats for the Under-12s and the Under-16s to Torquay United and Bridgwater respectively.
The Under-11s picked up a draw in their match against the PJSS Academy. All the youth teams represent the club as part of the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust.
