Feniton Under-16s came from 2-1 down to win a thrilling Exeter and District Youth League meeting with Budleigh Salterton 3-2, writes SpursTom.

Tyler Willis was the Feniton match winner, rifling home a 50th minute winner with a strike that would have graced a much higher level of the game!

It was Willis who scored in the very first minute to get Fenny off to a flying start.

However, Budleigh hit back with goals from Will White and Ryan Daffin, but parity was restored by half-time thanks to a goal from Giles Basson, who got himself cleverly between two defenders before drilling the ball home.

The only goal of the second half was that cracker from Willis to see Feniton to a richly deserved three points.
