Honiton Town lost their opening game in the Exeter and District Youth League Under-15 Division two, beaten 4-0 by visiting Crediton, write Sim Taylor.

The opening exchanges were brisk, but Honiton first to create an opening with Jack Katene going close following good work from Jack Smith. Crediton looked lively and it needed some good command of his area from keeper James Broad to deny the Mid Devon side.

Broad pulled off a number of fine saves before some indecision in front of him by defenders ended with the visitors taking a 27th minute lead. Conor Flanagn came close to levelling before the break.

Two goals early in the second half put Crediton in charge. Honiton rang the changes and Jack Katene had a shot well saved before Crediton bagged their fourth goal.

Honiton continued to pass the ball well with Lochie Charleton and Michael Taylor an industrious duo. Jack Smith had a shot well saved and a late penalty cannoned back off an upright. Crediton looked for further goals late on, but were denied again by some smart keeping from young Broad.
