Debutant Bobby Hilton came off the substitutes’ bench to score for Yeovil Town Under-18s, but he could not prevent them falling to a 2-1 defeat at league leaders Bridgwater United.

The schoolboy, a member of the Yeovil Town Community Trust’s Under-16s set up, appeared on the hour mark in the match at the Bridgwater & Taunton Sports Arena on Saturday. Also coming off the bench was Under-16s player Joey Beckey, who came on in the 65th minute.

The team which included top-scorer Charlie Bateson and goalkeeper Rob Hollard, who had both been on loan at Tiverton Town and Gillingham Town respectively.

Hollard returned from his loan spell last week whilst Bateson was available due to his loan club’s match being postponed on Saturday.

The result saw the Under-18s drop to third in the South West Counties’ Youth League behind Bridgwater and Torquay United.
