Yeovil Town Under-17s 9, Cirencester Under-17s 5.

ALTHOUGH Yeovil Town's Nationwide League game with Cheltenham Town at Huish Park last Saturday was a dire 0-0 draw, the Glovers' youth team served up plenty of goal action earlier in the day.

Yeovil's young guns went on the rampage in the Umbro Isotonic Youth Alliance League in their match on the 'top pitch' at Huish Park and beat Cirencester by an amazing 9-5.

Two goals by striker Andy Holmes put Yeovil in control by the 17th minute, only for Gregg Squibb to put through his own net to reduce the deficit to 2-1 in the 23rd minute.

Three minutes later and it was all square when Luke Davis scored, but Yeovil bounced back when Dale Williams notched the first of his haul in the 37th minute.

But there was still plenty of time for more goals before the interval and Yeovil went into the half-time break an amazing 6-2 to the good following further goals by Sean Smith, James Ansell and a second for Williams.

It was 6-3 soon after the start of the second period when Ryan Blanche netted a penalty for Cirencester and then it was 6-4 moments later when Matthew Green scored.

Williams restored Yeovil's three goal advantage in the 59th minute to complete his own personal hat-trick, only for Blanche to score from the penalty spot for Cirencester ten minutes later.

But midfielder Smith, who lodges in the same Yeovil house as Williams, was not to be outdone and he scored a further two goals in the 71st and 86 minutes to complete his own hat-trick and see the Glovers home to an amazing 9-5 victory.

Supporter Robin Evans, who covered the game for Yeovil's Ciderspace internet site, said: "Phew! Fourteen goals, two penalties, a disallowed goal, the crossbar hit twice - what a game!

"Certainly the most goals I have seen in a game and possibly the most extraordinary game I have ever attended.

"Congratulations to manager Stuart Housley, his staff and all of the players on an excellent first season in the South West Conference.

"With 11 teams competing in this league, Yeovil's achievement of a top-three finish is a superb reward for all of their efforts."
