Seaton FC Under-9s were this week up against a new team to the EDYL, Crediton Under 10s, who play on a much bigger pitch, and this was a key factor in Seaton’s 3-1 defeat, writes Anthony Hellier.

Seaton played some good football and pushed Crediton back, the pressure resulting in Seaton scoring after Alfie Tucker-Vincent attacked and Trafford Willcox scored to make it 1-1 at half time.

In the second half, a lot of the play was in the Seaton half of the pitch, but remained 1-1 for a long period.

Towards the end of the game, the size of the pitch took its toll and Crediton scored two quick goals as Seaton tired. Seaton Under 9’s put up a great fight against an older team and they all deserved to be Man of the Match.

Feniton Under-10s moved closer to the top of the Exeter and District League with a win and a draw against their Okehampton opposition. All 13 squad members played a crucial part in Feniton's away success, writes Steve Upsher.

Their first match proved a 0-0 stalemate against Oke Argyle Milan, on a big and boggy pitch. Against Oke Argyle Barca, Jake Upsher broke the deadlock in the first half, dribbling around two defenders before firing confidently into the net. Tom Jeacock clipped a well-worked Oscar Walsh free kick past the keeper before notching his second and Feniton's third. Barca scored a late consolation.

Seaton A U11s beat Feniton 6-2 - turning around their previous result, writes Andrew Franklin.

William Grieve scored in the first few minutes. Oliver Browne was brilliant in keeping possession and soon got his name on the score sheet. Not to be outdone. Lewis Pearson shot past all the Feniton defenders to get one over the head of the Feniton keeper.

In the second half Feniton took advantage of the down hill roll and got the better of Seaton’s goalie Ricky Littley to put the score 3-1. Within seconds Oliver Browne made it 3-2. Lewis Franklin played his first game up front and cracked a superb goal. Feniton came back to 5-2 but Lewis Pearson got the last goal for a fantastic win for Seaton A and a great performance from William Grieve and Will Campbell who showed great strength. Man of the Match was Lewis Pearson.

On the score sheet for colyton U12s as they beat Axminster 8-2 were: were, Ashley Mclean, Dom Beer, Lewis Hoole, Matt Venton, Will Bennett, and two goals from Man of the Match Joe Urquart.

A great all-round team performance from the Kentisbeare Colts U12s secured them another Exeter Youth League win - this time 3-1 against Brixington Utd.

Thom Bunker opened the scoring and went on to complete a first half hat-trick, his second and third goals split by a great move and resulting goal from Sam Carmody.

Jamie Smith took the Colts’ Man of

the Match award for good defence.
