While the first team’s struggles in front of goal continued, there was one team at Huish Park on Saturday who could not stop finding the net.

Yeovil Town Under-18s romped to a 6-1 home win over Wimborne Town in the South West Counties Youth League fixtured played on the 3G surface at the club due to the wet weather.

With Tiverton Town’s fixture being postponed, striker Charlie Bateson was in the starting XI and opened the scoring after just seven minutes before adding a second after 18 minutes.

The visitors pulled one back two minutes later before goals from Under-16s’ striker Bobby Hilton, a third for Bateson and Aidan Skiverton saw the young Glovers lead 5-1 at half-time.

Substitute Joey Beckey, who along with Hilton is a product of the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust youth teams, added a sixth with six minutes remaining to complete the rout which keeps them in third place behind Bridgwater United and leaders Torquay United.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Hollard, Archibald, Dyer, Nowak, Skiverton, Foster, Alden, Bareham, Bateson, Beale, Hilton. Substitutes: Hodges, Evans, Johnson, Beckey, Westlake.
