Honiton U8s 3, Colyton FC U8s 5

Honiton started very slowly against Colyton and soon found themselves 2-0 down, but a great ball out of defence from Mason Doble sent Bailey Williams on his way, writes Garry Osborne.

He got to the bye line and pulled it back for Liam Osborne to score but it was soon 3-1 at half time.

In the second half Honiton pushed ahead to get back in the game and, after great work from Harvey Hayson, Liam Osborne struck a low shot in the bottom right hand corner giving the keeper no chance.

Honiton could not get the next goal and Colyton broke away twice to make it 5-2 but Honiton kept going with Jack Beaven and Ben Mottram playing well and with Isaac Lidster playing well in goal.

Honiton got another back with Liam Osborne breaking down the wing and with a low cross found Bailey Williams to score low down and it finished 5-3. Harvey Hayson got man of the match for his hard work.

Honiton FC U8s 0, Millwey Rise U8s 10

In the second game Honiton played Millwey Rise and found it very hard going from start to finish. Harry Smith, along with Peter Osborne and Tyler Pendrick, kept going up front and in midfield and with some good work at the back from Jacob England and at half time it was 3-0 to Millwey.

In the second half Honiton looked like they used all their energy up but Jamie Slater and the rest of the team kept going but lost 10-0 in the end and, with Liam Osborne making some good saves in goal, it could have been worse.

Man of the match was Peter Osborne for his work rate and great tackling and player of the day was Liam Osborne for his passing and finishing in the first game and for his goal keeping in the second.

Manager Garry Osborne said: “Hopefully we can get some extra training in, which we have lost with the bad weather. We have had one training session since December 1 and this shows how desperate we are for an synthetic turf pitch in Honiton which the boys can train on.”
