Yeovil Town went out of the Somerset Premier Cup tonight at the first hurdle, as a solitary goal from Western Football League Premier Division side Clevedon Town was enough to separate the two sides. The 0-1 defeat came through a side that was built around the club's Under-18s line-up, with around four second year scholars supported by six first year scholars, with a number of Under-16s players making up the remainder of the teamsheet, with no full time professionals on show partly due to the first team's EFL Trophy match at Bristol Rovers on the previous evening.
The match was won as early as the 11th minute, with Jake Harris heading home from a Jake Llewellyn corner for what turned out to be the only goal of the game. Clevedon's line-up featured Isaac Reid, who is the younger brother of Exeter City striker and former Glover Reuben Reid, with Isaac having played for Yeovil Town Under-18s during the 2010-11 season. His current side could have been several goals ahead by the break, were it not for some dogged defending by the young Glovers, who did well to hang in there against a bigger and more physical side. Clevedon will go on to play Chard Town at home in the next round of the competition.
