Paulton Rovers ended the season by losing to Semi-Final play-off contenders, Tiverton Town.

They went behind on ten minutes after a defensive mistake saw Jamie Price intercept and his shot was blocked, but Rovers keeper, Andrew Hannah and Levi Landricombe followed up to score.

Four minutes later, Jamie Short made it 2–0, cutting in from the left wing and hit a firm, low shot past Hannah into the bottom of the net.

Paulton pulled a goal back on 55 minutes, as Reeko Best caused a mix-up between defenders and goalie, Joe Perry, sliced for Best to run on a slide into an open net.

With fifteen minutes left, Tiverton sealed the match as Michael and Levi Landricombe combined and found Price, who tucked the ball across Hannah and into the net.

The Sunday XI beat Odd Down 4–1 on Sunday.

The Tom Morgan Cup Final will be on Sunday, 7th May against Odd Down at Twerton Park, kick-off at 10.30 a.m.

Supporters wishing to travel on the coach leaving at 8.45 a.m. should add their names to the list on the notice in the clubhouse.
