Honiton Reserve’s secured a superb 3-2 victory at University.

What made the success all the more admirable was the student side had shipped just two goals in their previous five outings.

With regular team boss John Lewis missing; a three-person stand-in management team of Joe Knight, Helen Fremantle and Andrew Symonds took the team to Exeter for the game.

Blake Freemantle scored twice and Harry Leisk also netted.

Joe Knight said: “It was a superb show all-round. I am so proud of each and every one of them, though must single out Harry [Leisk) and Ash [Munt], the latter making his debut for the team after impressing in recent third team outings.”

One bad point about the day was alluded to by Knight as he said: “It was such a shame that, and not for the first time this season, the team pre-match plans were hit by players clearly ‘picking and choosing’ when they want to play.

“This cannot continue if we want to push on as a team. We simply must all pull together and show the same commitment as the younger lads.
