The Under-16s recorded their second win in three games since the opening day of the season as they claimed an impressive 8-0 success at Mid Devon-based Twyford Spartans.
The goal scoring honours went to Freddie Eul-Barker who scored four of the goals and the other came from William Bolton (2), Charlie Roberts and Henry Tuohy.
The Under-15s secured their third win in four games to take them to top of the league following a 2-0 home victory over Moors Youth with the goals coming from Thomas Nichols and Thomas Fletcher.
The Under-14s entertained West Hill and maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign with a splendid 8-2 victory.
