Colyton Under-11s lifted the East Devon Youth League, Life Members Club with another powerful all-round show.

Seaton started well, but once Colyton got their passing game flowing there was only ever going to be one winner! The opening goal came from a quick throw by Freddie Andrews that released Marcus Symonds and he cut inside before rifling the ball, home. Symonds quickly doubled his tally before Giles Basson set up Jacob Hale to make it 3-0 at half-time. The closest Seaton came to a first half goal was when they were denied by a superb Archie Clode save.

After the break Dan Huggins set up goals for Freddie Andrews and Giles Basson before Thomas Lambert made it six.

At the other end, Finley Cox, who had taken over goalkeeping duties, made a smart save to deny Seaton a consolation. Giles rounded off the scoring from a Freddie Andrews pass. Throughout the match the strong defensive pairing of Kieran Burraston and Cameron Board kept Seaton at bay with some well-timed tackles.

Colyton manager Craig Board said: “I am extremely happy with the way the boys played. They played good passing football and everyone played their part in the victory. The parents from both sides were out in force and the encouragement to both teams made it a special occasion. Colyton would like to thank Perry St for hosting the match, Mr W Ridout for refereeing and to Mr D Frood (league chairman) and the committee for all their hard work. We would also wish Seaton all the best in their Under-10 final.”
