Yatton & Cleeve ‘B’ 0, Berrow 7

A ruthless first half from Berrow saw them demolish their hosts Saturday with Man of the Match Joe North grabbing a first half hat-trick of the highest quality.

The game started evenly with the hosts looking quite lively up top, but Berrow were equal to their advances as they welcomed back captain Tom Edwards and player assistant manager James Gass.

However it was one way traffic as North kicked off the rout, taking an Edwards long ball under control, turning his marker with a piece of sublime skill, out pacing him and slotting past the keeper.

It was 2, then 3 with that man North again finding the bottom corner of the net via the post with a classy finish, that was quickly followed up by the returning Ben Hemingway-Arnold, who ran North close for the man of the match tag, slotting home from close range.

North completed his hat-trick with a finish similar to the first, once again rolling his man and coolly putting the ball beyond the keeper.

Dan Guyatt got in on the act just before half time with a powerful drive from a tight angle to make it 5.

Second half saw a drop in intensity, however North grabbed his fourth when Chris Warner cleverly played him in from the edge of the box from a free kick and Sid Howe continued his impressive goal scoring form when grabbed the 7th with a low drive from outside the box.

Berrow had plenty of opportunities in the second half with North being denied by the home keeper and Will Puddy blazing over when the goal was gaping.

Another impressive performance from the young side, as they continue their 100% start to the season, with only the 1 goal conceded in their first 3 games. Next week they take on local rivals Burnham United B at Red Road.
