Sidmouth Viking Raiders 3, Pinhoe Pirates 0 Sidmouth Raiders Under-11s were in great form from the first whistle and they went on to deservedly bank all three Exeter and District League points, writes Alec Latham

In a bright start there was a passage of fine passing with Archie Rowe making some good runs winning an early corner.

The Raiders, with Ben Scrivens, Scott Gibson and Finlay Morgan doing a fantastic job in defence stopping any counter attacks from the Pirates, continued to control proceedings.

Olly Jones, Cole Monaghan and Archie Rowe tormented the Pirates defences and delivered some slick crosses into Scott DeGruchy and Will Lorkin and it was the latter who opened the scoring with a crisp left-foot shot. Raiders went into the break with a 2-0 lead thanks to an Olly Jones goal.

The second half saw the introduction of Ben Latham, Mattie Laurenti and Thomas West. The Pirates came back strongly and won a penalty. However Isaac James produced a sensational save.
