Brown nets ‘goal of the season’ contender as Sidmouth Warriors win U14 local derby


Goal! - Credit: Archant

Sidmouth Warriors Under-14s were 4-2 winners when they contested an Exeter and District Youth League Division Two local derby against West Hill Wasps.

With familiarity across the two sides from school etc, there were plenty of personal battles fought in all areas of the pitch!

Warriors opened the scoring with a deft chip from Luke Guerin. Pablo Alvarez added a second and he would also have scored another, to make it 3-0, had not an incredible effort from fully 30 yards cannoned back off the crossbar!

Two minutes after the Alvarez ‘super strike’ Wasps were back in the contest as they took full advantage of some sleepy Warriors defending!

Warriors were soon back onto the front foot, controlling the game and the chances began to come at regular intervals. However, a combination of some outstanding goalkeeping by the Wasps glovesman and the frame of the goal meant no further goals were added until a contender for the goal of the season!

You may also want to watch:

Guerin chipped down the line to Goody, who showed superb touch and hit a brilliant half-volley pass to Connor Brown, who promptly lashed home from 25 yards out. It was a simply stunning goal. However, Wasps would not buckle and they scored next to make it 3-2 before Goody struck with a trademark goal to make it 4-2.

West Hill Wasps had the final say in terms of the goal scoring with a late third, but Warriors were not be denied a richly deserved victory.
