A late consolation goal from defender Jacob Shore was all Yeovil Town’s Under-18s had to show from a 3-1 defeat at home to Bridgwater United on Saturday.

The young Glovers were unable to get their noses in front despite a strong first half showing and their visitors took advantage with three goals after the break before Shore struck with five minutes to go.

It leaves them still searching for their first win in the South West Counties Youth League having drawn their first two matches.

There is no fixture for the Under-18s next weekend with their next outing coming at Wimborne Town on October 8th.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Robert Hollard, Josh Sutton (for Joshua Haskett), Max Dyer, Jacob Shore, Harrison Foster, Jake Graziano, Sam Hodges, Jack Bareham (for Alex Stevens, 52), Charlie Bateson (for Nathan Hart, 66), Benjani Junior, Ethan O’Sullivan (for Aidan Skiverton, 66).

The age group teams representing the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust picked up two victories but suffered three defeats at the weekend.

The Under-14s were the only side to get the better of their counterparts from Torquay United with the Devon side’s Under-13s, Under-15s and Under-16s getting the better of their Somerset rivals in the Junior Premier League.

There was success for the Trust’s Under-12s who defeated Taunton Town. The results in full:

Under-12s – won v Taunton Town
Under-13s – lost v Torquay United
Under-14s – won v Torquay United
Under-15s – lost v Torquay United
Under-16s – lost v Torquay United
