Seaton Under-10s returned to action after a number of cancellations and emerged from meetings with Brixington Blues and Brixington United with a win and a draw.

The games were played at Exmouth and first up Seaton took on Blues who they beat 1-0 thanks to a classic poachers finish from Leo Gribble.

It proved to be the only goal of the game, but Seaton deserved more as they controlled long periods of the contest with Christian Pinnock and Aaron Hale holding sway in central midfield. The pair’s impressive play set up a number of chances.

George Gait went closest and saw a couple of shots kept out only by the frame of the goal. He worked hard throughout and deserved a goal for his all-round play.

Harvey Green and Adam Clinch were solid in defence and gave the home strike force nothing more than a few half chances.

Seaton then took on Brixington United and once again served up some neat passing football. However, the Exmouth side produced similar and it was they who broke the deadlock with a goal.

Seaton defenders Thomas Brown and Max Neville impressed with the way they denied Blues a second and, just as they had in the first game, the Seaton midfield and attack took the game to the home side. Henry Matthews caused all kinds of problems with his clever movement and positional play. Leo Gribble fired wide from an angle and George Gait again hit a post following a pin-point cross, before seeing a late penalty claim turned down and Seaton were left beaten by that one goal.
