Seaton Town produced a stunning performance in what might yet be their penultimate outing in the Macron Devon and Exeter league Premier Division for at least the next season, when they won 10-0 at Okehampton on a sun-kissed third Saturday of May.

To be fair to the home side, they were under-strength, but, to use the well-oiled sporting adage ‘you can only beat what is put before you’, Town made a flying start and struck early with a goal scored by 16-year-old Reece McCabe, who was making only his second ever appearance for the side.

Once ahead, Town dominated and further goals came at regular internals with Seth Wakely finding the net four times and Pete Knox bagged a brace.

The other goals came from Charlie Ledger, Lewis Cottam and Kyle Gould.

Player-boss Josh French, who is stepping aside at the end of the current campaign, said: “It was something of a godsend that they [Okehampton] were nowhere near their usual full strength.

“That said, it opened the door for us to put on a show and we did just that. The most pleasing thing from my point of view is that we proved again that, when we have a full squad, we are callable of so much better than a relegation avoidance scrap!”

As for the actual performance, French said: “We played some great football and our final pass was spot on nine times out of 10 to create a goal scoring opportunity.”
