Seaton Town Under-12s extended their unbeaten run to nine games in an enthralling Exeter and District Youth League East Devon derby.

The prolific Reece McCabe scored to give Seaton a half-time lead.

It was no more than they deserved for they bossed the half with Drew Aedo-Smith orchestrating things from midfield.

They then spurned the chance to double the lead when Edward Kenworthy’s well struck spot kick was superbly saved by the home glovesman.

The Otters finished strongly and deservedly levelled before the end. They still had time to seek a winning goal, but the Town back line of Piers Alphonse, Ben Bush and Ella Richardson stood strong.

Seaton boss Jamie McCabe said: “We missed so many first half chances that perhaps we did not deserve to win.”.
