Broadclyst Under-8s were back in action at a wet and windy Kensham Park, Bradninch where Crediton and Moors provided the opposition.

First up, hosts Bradninch took on Crediton and began well, led by the impressive Nat Bishop. The youngster scored twice before Will Cridge got Crediton back into the contest with a fine finish.

However, that proved to be as good as it got for Kirton as Bradninch sailed to an 8-1 success with Bishop ending the game with six goals and the other two home goals were scored by Johann Timperley.

Theo Howard fired Broadclyst into a second minute lead in their meeting with Moors. The Tiverton side hit back and a number of fine saves by Max Metherell in the Clyst goal kept them at bay!

Further goals from Harry Crees and Ethan Board put Broadclyst in charge and they rounded off a 6-0 win with goals from Theo Howard, Jack Bauer and another from Crees.

Broadclyst then played Crediton and again they made a flying start with regular glovesman Metherell marking an outfield stint with an early goal. A Theo Howard double made it 3-0 before Ethan Board scored with a terrific striker. Crediton got one back through Leo Morgan, but the crisp Clyst passing was the difference between the teams and Howard completed his hat-trick in the second half before the ‘pass of the day’ produced by Harry Crees, set up Charlie Ebdon to score with a superb first touch. Ebdon went on to score two more to complete a hat-trick of his own before the most celebrated goal of the day, scored by new Broadclyst recruit Harry Bunday.

Jack Bauer completed the scoring with what proved to be the last kick of the game to seal a 9-1 success for Clyst.
