Seaton Town boss Josh Stunell has seen his side win twice in a week after their opening day mauling.
Town did not need to get out of first gear to secure a 3-1 win over Hatherleigh with Ben Ede bagging a brace and Josh French scoring from the penalty spot.
Stunell said: “I am delighted that we have seen a response. We were always in control against Hatherleigh and, if I had a grumble it would be that we did concede, albeit with virtually the last kick of the contest.”
Stunell continued: “We have spent a lot of time in pre-season working on our defending early in games. Last season a nemesis for us was conceding early goals and that is something we are looking not to do this time round. I am also looking to us to be far more conservative and much less gung-ho this season. The team is a year older ion age but they do look three or four seasons wiser in terms of on-pitch maturity. We have bounced back well from the opening day defeat and it augers well for what I am sure is going to be an exciting and fulfilling campaign.”
Cameron Vere is back with Town after spending much of the pre-season with Toolstation League side Bridport. Last year’s Devon County under-18 centre back played in the game against Hatherleigh. A delighted Stunell said: “Cameron had been with the Western League outfit in pre-season but I think felt he was not getting a fair crack of the whip. Of course we are delighted to have him back with us on a regular basis. His presence is a real asset for us.
On Saturday Town entertain Willand Rovers in the opening round of the East Devon Senior Cup.
