Sidmouth Warriors enjoyed a brace of clean sheet victories in their latest Exeter and District Youth League matches.

First up they defeated Seaton 3-0 with the hallmark of the win being the sold defensive play of Will Lawrence in front of a confident Oscar Finch in goal.

The opening goal arrived from a Lucas Vicary corner that was turned home by midfielder Lucas O’Connor.

O’Connor doubled the lead, netting his 23rd goal of the season in the process and that sent Warriors into half-time with a 2-0 lead.

After the break Seaton hit back and there were some terrific battles in midfield. Alistair Mounoury made many fine runs at the Seaton defence. At the other end of the pitch more fine defending from Lawrence and Dylan Robbins and two superb saves by Finch, denied Seaton a way back into the game.
