Honiton Town Reserves continued their recent improvement with a 2-1 success at Clyst Valley.
There were some impressive individual performances with 16-year-old Jake Charlton making a fine impression on his first start for the team.
Sean Devine was another youngster to do well on what was also his first start at this level. However, in a close contest, the Town Man of the Match was undoubtedly Rowan Symonds who was magnificent in goal for the Hippos.
Goals from Luke Phillips and Harry Leisk, the latter netting at the end of a superb team passing move, won the points for the Hippos and manager John Lewis said: “The win was deserved for the lads showed great character. The squad is now brimming with youth and talent which is very pleasing for both club and management.
“At Clyst Valley, when the final whistle blew, the average age of the Town side was just 19 and all that augers so well for the future of our club.

“What is also does of course mean is that those players who were missing today, for whatever reason, will now find it very hard to get back into the squad and may well have to fight to get a game with the third team!”
On Saturday (December 2), the Hippos second string travel to play University.
