Substitute Bobby Hilton scored a second half double to earn Yeovil Town Under-18s a 3-1 win over Wimborne Town on Saturday.

The young Glovers took the lead through a header from Aidan Skiverton with 33 minutes gone at the Alvington Playing Fields.

But the visitors pulled level three minutes in to the second half only for Hilton to put them ahead again on 67 minutes and then added a third with five minutes remaining.

The result was the first win of the South West Counties Youth League season for the Under-18s who are in a major rebuild with a number of last season’s squad now either on loan for in the first-team set-up.

They moved up to eighth and travel to Mangotsfield United next weekend.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Travers, Johnson, Foster, Ansell, Shore, Skiverton, Alden, Padmore, Dyer, Koerner, Stevens.
Substitutes: Bareham, Nanev, Alexander, Haskett, Hilton.
