Honiton Under-8s played some superb football in their final outing of the season.
They played against a very strong Central side and beat the Exeter-based outfit 2-1.
Jacob England provided the assist for Liam Osbourne to fire Honiton ahead and the lead was doubled with arguably the team’s goal of the season!
The emphasis in training with coach Gary Osbourne is to get the bal, down and pass, and a five-player move, started deep in their own half by Jack Beaven, ended with Mason Doble firing the ball into the back of the Central net.
Despite the opposition halving the deficit after the break Honiton closed the game out well to seal a deserved victory.

Ben Motren had another fine game in defence whilst Bailey Williams was named Man of the Match for an exceptional shift up front.
After the game the two clubs met again when Honiton used their squad players and this game saw them recover from a three-goal deficit at half-time to be edged out by the odd goal in five.

Harry Smith scored both Honiton goals, one of them a rocket of a free-kick.
Jess Spence had a fine game at the heart of the defence and there were excellent contributions from Louis Stevens and Tyler Pendrick whilst keeper Isaac Lidster was again outstanding and fully deserving of the Player of the Day honour.
