University 0:3 Seaton Town

A fourth clean sheet of the season coupled with a comfortable three goal victory made for a very satisfying trip to Exeter for Josh Stunell and his high flying Town side.

Goals from Mark Hancock, Tom Vincent and Dan Norman made sure that Town banked another win and moved nine points clear at the top of the Premier Division table.

The key individual in the game was Alex Wheatley who pulled all the strings from first whistle to last from a central midfield berth.

A delighted Stunell said: “It was a very comfortable victory. I felt at times in the second half we had a couple more gears we could have gone through had it been needed. When this team clicks like that they do look a well-oiled machine. The key for us now is to recognise that, despite both St Martins and Topsham Town having games in hand, we have the points in the bank. If we can continue to turn the screw then all the pressure is going to be on the two closest chasers who have to meet each other. Personally I am delighted that Topsham are making a good fist of the season for it means for a fascinating run-in to the season with any one of four or five clubs quite capable of still being crowned the top side, and that will help our bid with the top sides all having to play each other during the run-in.”

On Saturday Town host Alphington and Stunell is wary of the threat they pose.

He says: “Last season we dropped daft points to the Alphas and I don’t want a repeat of that this time. We need to be focussed on this game and look to get it won as competently as possible.”
