Withycombe Under-10s bagged three wins in their four matches against hosts Teignmouth.

Both teams had sufficient numbers to field two teams. The first set of games were played at a high tempo and the tackling of Ben Jeffery and Corey Mills to the fore. This saw the Teigns on the back foot with Bobby Pond and Jamie Thompson making good yards with ball in hand. On the other pitch the elusive running of Jack Macdonald-Brown was a real high point for all watching. With Max Rowley and Abigail Cotter working hard in both attack and defence the young Withies were making their presence felt. At the end of the games, the results saw a game going to each side. After a quick reshuffle of personnel both sides were ready to go again.

These matches were incredibly even as all players put their all into everything. The long-range passing of Lewis Tose and Kieran Long was finally starting to stretch the Teigns defence, with Mia Farrow making the most of the space to score. This coupled with an incredibly determined Thompson, and strong direct runs from Charlie Tucker saw the Withy defence hold strong.

These performances were being matched across on the other pitch where Tyler Gover, Daisy Asselman made their presence felt and Ned Mills and Finlay Jobson got the hard work done at the breakdown.

A most successful set of matches were enjoyed by all with Withy player Ben Jeffery named ‘Player of the Match’.
