Seaton Under-16s powered to a 5-1 victory in their latest outing in the Exeter and District Youth league.

With regular skipper Ollie Binnion missing Kyle Gould took on the captain’s role.

Seaton got the perfect start with Jacob Rowe hauled down in the area in the opening exchanges and he got up to stroke home the resultant penalty.

Lewis Cottam doubled the lead and scorer then turned provider as he set up Max Richardson to shoot and his effort was fumbled by the visiting glovesman to make it 3-0. The Kents rallied and reduced the arrears, but the three goal margin was swiftly restored as Cottam netted his second send the hoe side into the break with a 4-1 advantage.

The second half saw the game peter out into a scrappy affair though the industrious Tony Pinder kept the Mid Devon defenders on their toes. Kentisbeare carried a threat, but solid defending by Lewis Pearson and Brandon Curl meant goalkeeper Jamie Tait was under employed. Fittingly it was stand-in skipper Gould who completed the scoring with the only goal of the second half.

Tony Pinder was named the Seaton Man of the Match.

This Saturday Seaton face a daunting game against Division One Sidmouth Town in the next round of the Exeter and District League Cup.
