Seaton Under-9s were narrowly beaten by St Martins in a close encounter.
The Exminster-based side went two goals up with one of them being bizarre, to say the least! A Seaton defender, blinded by a low winter sun and undone by a rabbit divot, struck an attempted long-range back pass into the top corner of his own net!
However, it did little to dent Seaton’s confidence and they laid siege to the St Martin’s goal for much of the second half with Henry Matthews forcing the ball home from close range to set up a grandstand finish. Seaton linked up well on the attack, forcing numerous corners. Aaron Hale swung them in hitting the far post, the near post before finding a bullet header from Max Nevell that the goalkeeper somehow kept out. It was one of those mornings and the goal they deserved never came. Kieran Jaycock was superb in between the posts and gave an assured performance; he is developing into a fine keeper.
