Exeter City FC announce half term soccer schools

Seaton FC U10s took on a very determined Feniton U9s’ team who, despite the age gap, battled very hard in an 8-0 defeat, writes Mark Rooke. Seaton eventually broke through and opened the scoring in the 11th minute. Seaton then settled down and began playing some neat football. The first half finished with Seaton leading 4-0.

The second half was dominated by Seaton, but the Feniton keeper - and Man of the Match - George Prismall was superb and saved countless one on ones and Seaton were guilty of spurning a number of very easy chances. Seaton scored a further four goals in the second half and Feniton had their only shot of the game with five minutes left.

Seatons scorers were Lewis Brown 3, James Harris 2, Taylor Rooke, Christian Solway and Sam Broom.

Seaton’s Man of Match was Lewis Brown who showed some great skills and determination to score a good hat-trick.

● Tom Fouracre and George Richards both hit a brace as Seaton FC U14s came from a goal down to beat Central U14s 5-3 in this lively encounter, writes Jane Barribal.

Seaton set off at a blistering pace with Liam Barribal and Todd Lewendon forcing early saves from the Central keeper. But Seaton found themselves a goal down against the run of play after they failed to clear a Central corner into the box. The lead lasted just three minutes as Fouracre ran onto a through ball, held off the defender and scored. Richards raced down the left on a solo run, cut in and shot across goal for a half time lead of 2-1.

The second half saw both sides have numerous chances but they didn’t score until the 22nd minute, when Lewendon intercepted a Central goal kick and laid the ball into Richards’ path to lob the keeper. Fouracre looked to have sealed the points with a stunning strike for 4-1. But the next Seaton attack faltered and Central raced down to the other end, out-witted the otherwise solid Seaton defence, and scored for 4-2. Lewendon finally got on the score sheet, having hit the woodwork twice, when he ran onto a great through ball from Fouracre to slot past the keeper. Central didn’t give up and scored their third of the match with an unstoppable free kick in the dying seconds.

Seaton’s Man of the Match was Tom Fouracre.

● Honiton Sharks u10s drew 2-2 with Dawlish Evens and beat Dawlish Odds 5-2, writes Warren Matthews.

Honiton gained a well-deserved draw against a good Dawlish Evens side through a goal from Dylan Nicholas and a rasping shot from September’s Player of the Month, Jake Matthews.

The second match saw the visitors take the lead twice in the last minutes of the first half against the run of play.

Honiton hit back with two strikes from Jake Matthews and Man of the Match Dylan Nicholas completed a hat-trick. Captain Kelsey Pulman was inspiring, with another fine display in goal making some crucial saves. Luke Ward set up many attacks with good passes linking play between midfield and the forwards. Honiton passed the ball around well earning victory through the hard work and commitment of all players including Owen Fisher, Joel Trim, Danny Ruel, Rowan Westall and Ben Moulton.

● Colyton U15s beat Buckland Athletic u15s 9-2, writes Colin Searle.

Colyton played host to Buckland on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, the weather was not on the teams’ sides and they had to play through a couple of heavy showers. However, this did not dampen their spirits and Colyton went 4-0 up by half time. The second half proved much the same with both teams pressing forward but Colyton coming out on top. Final score of the game was a 9-2 convincing win for Colyton.

Goal scorers for Colyton were Charlie Stephenson 4, James Hill 3, Tom Cligg and Brandon Turner one apiece. A great team performance from the Colyton lads and a well-deserved victory.
