A WHOLE host of youth football teams descended on Bishops Lydeard AFC, in Cothelstone Road, for matches in the Taunton Youth League, Somerset Girls League and mini football last Saturday.

There were ups and downs aplenty for the host club, with their Under-12s beaten 5-1 by Wellington, the Under-13s seeing off Wembdon 3-1 – Charlie Freeman hitting a hat-trick – and the Under-15 girls side overpowering Ilminster 6-0 in their Girls League encounter.
