Torbay Weekly

Torquay United's Under-18 side completed a big weekend of SW Counties Youth League and Devon Junior Cup success.

Despite losing striker Lewis Brookes to an early injury, the young Gulls hammered Wimborne Town 11-0 with goals by Brandon Quinn (3), Theo Cadby (2), Jayden Gilbert, Sam Stayt, Joseph Edmonds, skipper Alfie Collings, Ben Aldous and Jack Winsor.

United, who will top the table if they beat New College (Swindon) at South Devon College this Saturday (10.30am), then overcame Alphington 4-1 in wretched conditions with goals by Gilbert (2), Quinn and Stayt.

In-form Torquay United Ladies went top of the SW Women's Regional League with a 5-0 win over Royal Wootton Bassett - Ellie Bishop (2), Esme Kilburn-Thompson, Beth Everson and Katie Barriball all scored.

They have a key game this Sunday away to Ilminster Ladies, who are two points behind with three games in hand.
