Super strike from Ede sets up another Town away day success.

PUBLISHED: 13:27 27 September 2011


Seaton Town powered to a 4-0 victory at Thorverton to maintain top spot in the Fresha League, Premier Division.

Ben Ede (2), Dan Norman and Jacob Hayes netted the goals and Town were good value for the win.

Boss Josh Stunell said: “We played very well, as well as in any previous game this season so far. The quality of the goals was the thing that impressed me, particularly the opener, a wonderful 30-yard strike from Ben (Ede). The last one was special too, as Jacob (Hayes) made his way from his central defensive berth up field before chipping the keeper to complete the scoring.”

Next up is without doubt the top flight ‘Match of the Day’ with Town putting their table topping status on the line at home to the only side to sport a one hundred percent record, St Martins. The Exminster side have won all five of their games so far and are only one of two unbeaten sides in the section – the other being Morchard Bishop.

Stunell says: “Despite it still being the early stages of the season there’s no escaping that this game with St Martins is the proverbial six pointer. I have no doubt that they (St Martins) are going to have a big say in where the silverware ends up this term and so, if we are to achieve what we plan to do, then games like this one need to be won. We know plenty about them as a couple of their players are in the League side that I am looking after this season so we are fully aware of the quality and the threat that they carry. However, I am confident in the ability of my side and can’t wait to lock horns with them. If you want to be the best you have to beat then best and they don’t come much better at our level than St Martins.”

Ollie Highett, who missed the Thorverton trip with a bad back, is expected to be fit for Saturday’s big game at Colyford Road which kicks off at 3pm.
