Sidmouth Warriors Under-10s bagged two clean sheet victories as they kicked off their Exeter and District Youth League season in style.
The Warriors made a confident start dominating both games against their local rivals. In the first match against Feniton, the Warriors finally converted one of their many chances with debutant Thomas Rowan getting on the end of a scintillating run by Samuel Rice. The close score line made for a tense finish yet it was the Warriors who continued to create the better chances.
Against Ottery St Mary the Warriors took control from the outset with Stanley Richardson’s dynamic wing play creating several openings. The pressure finally told when Joe Ashby finished neatly from close range. The goal of the morning came in the second half with Richardson and Ashby again linking up on the left, this time to feed an unmarked Jamie Salter who dispatched a brilliant shot into the top corner.
Toby Hill had an outstanding morning for the Warriors as did Tim Goody on his debut.
Goalkeeper George Wheeler was rarely troubled, but distributed the ball expertly to set up Warrior attacks. Well done to all the boys for their excellent work-rate and solid team play.
