Broadclyst Tigers Under-12s were 6-2 winners over Sidmouth Junior Vikings as they continued their table-topping start to the new Exeter and District Youth League season.

In a flying start, Tigers were a goal up with Toby Moore netting with his first touch of the contest!

However, there was perhaps a little too much celebrating the goal for, in an instance, the Vikings levelled!

Bolted by the instant reply, Tigers were soon back on the front foot and, with Owen Badlam, Leon Waite and Hugo Castro, central to much of their positive play, they began to create some promising situations.

Concentrated defending from Joa Cassap, and some great balls into the danger zone from Charlie Carstairs kept the pressure on the Vikings, and before long, Toby Moore scored his second. Some further penetrating runs from Harry Finch and Toby Moore enabled young Moore to net again to complete his hat-trick.

The Vikings came back strongly, and some very good clean-up work from George Davey, Kobe Farley and Daniel Baynes was needed to blunt some of the attacks.

Sonny Smith blocked a powerful free-kick taken right on the edge of the box while, at the opposite end of the pitch, Freya Horler, for the Tigers, was quick on her feet, and scored the fourth before the Vikings pulled one back.

After the break there was more organised and controlled football from the Tigers.

Hugo Castro in mid-field was outstanding, and Harry Finch with Toby Moore continued to threaten, and eventually Finch scored the fifth.

Ben Gale came under a bit of pressure with a one-on-one from a fast Vikings striker, and he just managed to parry the shot wide.

Finally, Freya Horler fired in the Tigers’ sixth to complete a fine morning’s work for the side.

The ‘Men of the Match’ award, sponsored by the Red Lion ( went to Hugo Castro and Charlie Carstairs.
