Seaton Town 2, Willand Rovers 0

Seaton Town were good value for a clean sheet success against the Mid Devon side.

It was not until the second half that the deadlock was broken when Pete Knox scored the first of his two goals that secured the points.

It was Jack Lamb-Wilson who orchestrated everything from a central midfield berth and there was a very accomplished shift at left back from Matt Hancock who is not used to playing in that berth, but made it look as if he’d been playing there for some time!

Seaton boss Keith Somers said: “To be frank I was not best pleased at half-time for I thought we should have had the game won by then. We were not as slick as I’d have liked in the first 45 minutes, but we put that right after the break and Peter (Knox) once again showed what a quality finisher he is. I am satisfied with how things are at present, but if pressed to sum the early season up then the school report might say ‘satisfactory, but could certainly do better!’ We will need to be at our best for the next game!”

That next game takes Seaton to a Newtown side who are one of three in the Fresha League top flight with 100 per cent records, The Exeter side have won all four of their games so far and one thing concerns Somers about the game. He said: “Just who I field is a real worry as we currently have an injury list as bad as I have ever endured in my years in the game. On top of the injuries we are also without the working Peter (Knox) which is a shame. However, I am sure the side we do put out will give a good account of themselves.”
