Tigers' second team boss Kevin Turner, though disappointed with the side's exit from the Devon Senior Cup last weekend, remains very confident about the future as a number of younger players continue to come 'through the ranks' at Sector Lane.With the Tigers' first team playing in the South West Peninsula League there is an obvious need for Turner to navigate the club's reserve side further up the Devon and Exeter League Divisions. Turner says: "I am quietly confident that we have enough about us this term to finish in the top three and play Senior Two football next season."Jamie Barfoot made the step up from third team to Turner's side for the cup tie against Chudleigh. Sixteen-year-old Barfoot played wide on the right and did well as Turner confirmed saying: "Barfoot took to the higher stage very well and he's one for the future."Another teenager set to step up is young Lee Beer, brother of Tigers' Reserves left back Daniel Beer. The younger Beer suffered a broken ankle playing for the club's under-16s last season but is back fit and making excellent progress in the third team. Turner says: "He is one of those all important versatile players who can dovetail into a number of formations. He's another of our young guns of which I expect excellent things.
