Old Sodbury Under 15’s hosted a well-organised Clifton United on a tired pitch and were made to work hard for their win.
Playing down the slope in the first half and with the wind behind them, Old Sodbury dominated proceedings and it was only a matter of time before Ethan Lloyd put his team in front with a neat finish for his 16th goal of the season.
Ross Womack bagged a landmark 50th goal of an excellent campaign shortly before half time to give the score line a more comfortable feel for the home side.
Clifton reduced the deficit immediately after the break with an unfortunate Sodbury own goal following a failed clearance from a free kick and for a while an unlikely comeback seemed possible.
Sodbury settled their nerves with a decisive winning goal forged by the tenacity of man of the match Callum Heaphy who caused mayhem in Clifton’s defence. Womack drilled in his second of the match to seal the victory and win promotion in the team’s second season together.
