Weymouth 6

Bridport 2

Weymouth Under 18s continued their preparations for the 2020/21 season when they met Bridport yesterday afternoon.

The young Terras side had their fair share of the possession in the first-half and kept the ball well, but at times found themselves struggling to cope with the physicality of the Bridport players.

It was Weymouth who took the lead when centre-back Connor Allison rose highest from a corner and put away a great header.

The Terras were then pegged back by their West Dorset rivals who equalised, and then scored another when a ball over the top caught out the Weymouth back line.

But Weymouth did find another before half-time, this time Troy Walbridge getting himself on the end of a great cross from Jack Crouch.

Jack Crouch turned from provider into scorer in the second-half scoring Weymouth’s third when he finished off a fantastic team effort.

Weymouth started to control the game, Will Hall and Owen Peart in particular showing some great passing and vision in the midfield.

The Terras made a number of changes in the second-half, bringing on two of their under 16 players, who both got their names on the score sheet.

Jack Crouch rounded off the afternoon when he converted a penalty late on.

Speaking after the game Weymouth coach Andy Peart said he was proud of his players display and told uptheterras.co.uk that there was “some great talent for the future of the club.”

Man of the match: Will Hall
