Sidmouth Town Under-10s shared the spoils in their match with hosts West Hill Youth.

The game might not have seen a goal, but it was not short on action as two well-matched teams gave their all through a close encounter.

As they had done in their earlier game, the Town youngsters moved the ball around with confidence, but, unlike in the first game, they were not able to keep their shape as well.

The hosts fashioned the first couple of chances, but Town glovesman Reece Hext was equal to them.

At the other end of the pitch the home defence held the Town attack at arms length.

With almost then last kick of the game West Hill looked to have won the match with a shot that seemed destined to hit the back of the net only for Hext to pull off an outstanding save.

Town coach Bryn Clapp said: “Our first game was played in exactly the style I want the team to play in. They kept the ball so well with plenty of exceptional passing and movement. We lost a little bit of that in the second game which is probably the difference between taking the spoils or the draw.
