Seaton Town 5, Sidmouth 6
Seaton Town Under-15s were edged out in a thrilling East Devon Youth League derby, writes Andrew Franklin.
Lewis Cottam fired Seaton into an early lead, but parity was restored when Freddie King scored for Sidmouth.
The action swung from one end of the pitch to the other as the two teams traded goal for goal!
Seaton showed tremendous team spirit from first whistle to last. Cameron Gould led by example with real enthusiasm mixed with lots of good communication.
Jacob Rowe, Connor Cox and Tony Pinder kept feeding the ball through to attacking players Max Richardson, Matty Vincent, Pete Smith and Lewis Cottam.
It was a shame that someone had to lose what was a real thriller of a contest.
Lewis Pearson was superb as the stand-in keeper for Seaton.
Matty Vincent, with a brace, Cameron Gould, Tony Pinder and Lewis Cottam, were the Seaton scorers.
The Man of the Match for Seaton was Jacob Rowe.
Next up is this Sunday’s Devon County Cup tie with Dawlish the visitors for a 10.45am kick-off.
