Team win cup after claiming league title

WELLS City FC U12s could finish the season with three trophies after winning the High Holborne Cup, days after wrapping up the Yeovil & District League Division One title.

Their third opportunity for silverware will come when they take on Merriott Marvels U12s in the Bill Bissett Cup final at Somerton Recreation Ground on May 12.

The High Holborne Cup final was played at Huish Park, home of Yeovil Town FC, on April 18, when the Wells team took on Merriott Rhinos U12s.

The Wells players travelled to Yeovil on a coach supplied by P & V Minibuses, and found all their kit laid out in the away changing room once they arrived, before going for a walk around the pitch and stadium.

When the game got underway, both teams made a slow start, but Wells City gradually started to find their rhythm and were two-nil up at half time, with goals scored by Isaac Clowes and Josh Oakley. They continued in the same manner in the second half, scoring another three goals through Josh Oakley (who was named Wells’ player of the match), Isaac Clowes and Isaac Neale.

Manager Ged Donnelly said: “This was an amazing day from start to finish. Big thank you to Yeovil Town Football Club for hosting this event. It is one occasion the team management, players and parents/carers will never forget.

“The facilities and pitch were brilliant and not something that we are normally accustomed to and with so much support, made the event even more special.

“The delight in winning this competition is unbelievable and to add this to the league title which was confirmed the Sunday before this game is extra special. “One more final for this team on May 12. Just hoping we can obtain a third trophy, which would be fitting for this exceptionally gifted team.”
