Two goals inside the last ten minutes denied Ottery St Mary Under-16s a first win of the season.

Goals from Toby Harris, Tom Collins and James Hepworth put the Otters on course for victory against visiting Elmore in an Exeter Youth League Division One meeting, only for the visitors to hit back with two late goals.

Otters boss Bill Hayes said: “A draw is a fair result. Over the course of the game they (Elmore) had plenty of the ball. The encouraging thing for us is that we scored three goals against a good side and, in general, played some good football. I am delighted with the fact that all my players put a shift in.”
