An injury time winner from substitute Nathan Hart took ten-man Yeovil Town Under-18s top of the South West Counties League table.

Hart, who came on as a 60th minute substitute, struck four minutes in to stoppage time at the end of the second half to seal a 4-3 win over third placed Cirencester Town.

The win moved the young Glovers top of the table with former leaders Bridgwater United’s match against Bath City falling foul to the weather.

Yeovil took the lead earlier through a third-minute strike from young striker Charlie Bateson, his eighth of the season.

Having been pegged back, Max Dyer restored the visitor’s lead with a thunderous 32nd minute strike from the edge of the box.

Cirencester drew level on the hour and then suffered a double setback on 65 minutes when Ethan O’Sullivan was sent off for giving away a free-kick which the home side scored from.

Mason Hunter’s 90th-minute thunderbolt from 25 yards looked to have earnt the visitors a late point, before Hart struck at the death.

Manager Matt Percival was only able to name three substitutes having seen goalkeeper Rob Hollard, midfielder Sam Hodges, captain Jake Graziano and striker Benjani Junior, who have joined Western League sides Gillingham Town and Sherborne Town since the side’s last match.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Jordan Witcombe, Mikey Archibald (for Corey Koerner, 60), Max Dyer (captain), Jacob Shore, Harrison Foster, Mason Hunter, Aidan Skiverton, Charlie Bateson, Alex Stevens (for Jack Bareham, 65), Josh Haskett (for Nathan Hart, 60), Ethan O’Sullivan.
