Ottery St Mary Under-15s net nine in clinical show
Ottery St Mary Under-15s were clinical in the way they put visiting Crediton Youth to the sword at Washbrook Meadow, writes Steve Birley.
The Otters scored nine times in a clean-sheet success.
Coach Steve Flinders said: “It was another very good show by the boys who were on top of their game from the very first minute. Some of the goals were special and all were clinically taken.”
The Otters struck four in the first half and another five after the break.
James Hepworth hit the first two and then a Sean Jepson double saw the Otters into half-time with a healthy advantage.
