A long range effort from captain Jake Graziano capped a 3-0 win for Yeovil Town Under-18s at Mangotsfield United on Saturday.

The young Glovers made a rapid start to the South West Counties Youth League fixture taking the lead after just two minutes when Max Dyer headed home a cross from Mason Hunter after just two minutes.

Graziano’s 25-yard effort following a flick-on by Jacob Shore added a second on eight minutes and striker Charlie Bateson put the game to bed on 14 minutes running on to a ball over the top and slotting past the keeper.

The result keeps Yeovil second in the table with a strong Torquay United side coming to Alvington next weekend. The Gulls, who were managed by Glovers’ first-team coach Chris Todd last season, are third in the table having played three games less than Yeovil and five games less than leaders Bridgwater United.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Rob Hollard, Ethan O’Sullivan, Jacob Shore, Harrison Foster, Jake Graziano, Mason Alden (for Jack Clark, 80), Charlie Bateson (for Ryan Price, 85), Sam Hodges, Mason Hunter, Josh Haskett, Max Dyer.

It was a successful weekend for the club’s other age group teams with four wins racked up by the sides playing under the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust.

The Under-11s and Under-12s won their Junior Premier League fixtures against North Somerset Regional Talent Centre and Paulton Rovers respectively, with the Under-14s and Under-15s both beating their counterparts from Saints South West.

The Under-16s drew their fixture against Bridgwater United whilst the Under-13s lost to Saints South West.
