Sidmouth Town Under-13s powered to a 14-1 victory over Brixington Blues in an Exeter and District Youth League game, writes Mike Garrick.
The score line did not flatter the Sidmouth team who outplayed the opposition with neat passing football and outstanding movement off the ball.
This result sends out a clear marker to other teams in the division that this team is determined to regain its place in the top division at the first time of asking!
Sidmouth’s four new outfield players, Ben Goodier, Louis Adey, Tom Moore and Luke Spiller all scored debut goals with Spiller capping a superb display on the right hand side of midfield with a hat-trick. The other scorers were Matt Salter, Louis Spalding, Toby Garrick, Jay Harris, an own goal and another hat-trick, this time from Jordan Watts.
Watts won the Man of the Match Award for his goals, the second of which was a goal of the season contender, but also for his never say die attitude and his ability to bring other people into the game. This was a fantastic performance from all members of the squad and a great way to start the season.
