On a proud night Seaton produced one of their best displays of the season to win the President's Cup for the first time in their history.Seaton started well and created some good scoring opportunities early on, but found Colyton's keeper James Mitcham in outstanding form. After 15 minutes played, Colyton started to find their feet and equally produced some great scoring chances but failed to convert at least two excellent opportunities. In the 20th minute Seaton's top scorer Miles Alphonse (23 goals) volleyed a tremendous shot into the back of the net from a Morrison cross. This was shortly followed by skipper Josh French converting from the spot after the impressive Ritchie Durrant was fouled in the box. The next goal would prove to be decisive. A neat move developed in Seaton's midfield which saw Cameron Vere beat the offside trap to score and kill off any possible Colyton comeback. Colyton continued to battle hard and played some good football, but could not find a way back into the game. On the 70th minute Seaton's Robbie Fellingham coolly slotted home from a tight angle. Shortly before full-time, Iain Rylance scored the goal of the night, and possibly the goal of the season, after picking up the ball 30 yards out and delightfully curling a right foot shot into the top left corner of Mitcham's goal.Seaton: (with marks out of 10): Turner (8), Sergent (8), Sweetland (9), Wyatt (9), Dack (9), Fellingham (9), Durrant (9), French (9), Morrison (9), Alphonse (10), Vere (10). Subs Youens (7), Kana'ah (7), Reed (7), Gould (7), Rylance (8). The league's Man Of The Match went to captain Josh French.
