Broadclyst Under-8s were in action at Bradninch for matches against the home side and Seaton.

The first game of the morning saw the home side take on Seaton who struck first with a fifth minute Sam Fowler goal – the ball squirming under the body of Bradninch glovesman Charlie Chubbs.

Seaton doubled their lead through Harrison Walker and that’s the way it stayed through to full-time.

Broadclyst then took on Seaton and this was an end-to-end contest with Broadclyst first to score courtesy of a Theo Howard goal and he added a second before half-time.

After the break Ethan Board scored a superb solo goal to clinch a 3-0 win for his side.

The home side levelled through Nat Bishop and the end-to-end nature of the match continued with Jack Bauer and Charlie Chubbs battling well.

Ethan Board restored the Clyst lead, but Bishop again levelled things up – this time with a neat flick at the far post from a well-delivered corner.

For the third time Clyst took the lead with the impressive Bauer the scorer and, in the dying moments, Board netted his second to seal a 4-2 victory.

On the morning, the Broadclyst star player awards went to Jack Bauer and Charlie Ebdon.
