Sidmouth TJV U13s 10, Pinhoe 0

Playing at home Sidmouth welcomed the returning Freddie King with a resounding win against Pinhoe. Sidmouth totally overwhelmed them. Scorers were Ed Doble 3 Ben Miller 2 Freddie King 2 Alex Stone, Jack DeWinton, Charlie Freeman, writes Paul Newbery.

Dawlish 1, Sidmouth 1

Away against Dawlish, Sidmouth were quick to get into their stride spending long periods in the opposition’s half.

Sidmouth opened the scoring through Jack DeWinton and, despite dominating, let Dawlish in to level just before full time.

It was stressed to kept attacking and the goals would happen and not to lose concentration at the back. Sidmouth continued in the same vein as the first but the Dawlish goal led a charmed life with bad finishing but good defending and goalkeeping kept Sidmouth at bay. With five minutes left a lapse in concentration let the Dawlish striker in & he needed no invitation to level the scores. Sid tried to find a winner but the whistle blew to frustrate Sidmouth who played 90 per cent of the match in the opposition’s half.
