Broadclyst played host to their latest set of Exeter and District Youth League matches, taking on Exmouth sides Cobras and Pythons.

First up, against Exmouth Pythons, Clyst made a bright start and it was the ever reliable Harry Crees who broke the deadlock for Broadclyst with a powerful strike from the edge of the box. Crees was next to strike to give Clyst a two-goal cushion. Pythons hit back and goals from Oliver Hopkins and Dominic Lawrence making it 2-2. Jack Bauer restored the home lead early in the second half only for Pythons to again level things up with Lawrence netting his second.

Late in the contest Crees struck again to complete a terrific hat-trick and seal Broadclyst a 4-3 victory.

Both goalkeepers had impressive games with Clyst’s Max Metherell saving a second half penalty and opposite number Skye McDonald-Brown making a number of smart saves to deny Clyst further goals.

Bradninch then took on Exmouth Cobras and a one-sided contest saw them win 8-1. Nat Bishop (4), Ben Hutchinson (2), Charlie Chubb and Ewan Phillips, scored for Bradninch with Elijah Edwards replying for Cobras.

The morning’s action was concluded with Broadclyst netting a 5-0 win over Exmouth Cobras. The first half produced something of a stalemate, but just before the break the deadlock was broken when Charlie Ebdon slotted home with a neat first touch after Harry Crees picked him out in a crowd. The second half was more one-sided with Clyst netting four unanswered goals. Harry Crees bagged his fourth of an excellent morning for him and the other goals came from Theo Howard (2) and a tidy finish from Toby Brooks.
