Sidmouth Town Under-14 pay price for missed chances
Dawlish Town 1, Sidmouth Town 1 For the fourth game in a row Sid failed to beat a Dawlish side in a contest that saw them dominate almost continually.
Sid started tentatively on a big pitch with a clear problem being their desire to play far too many long balls.
Changes were made with one of them, Jonny Dunn reappearing in a Sid shirt after a spell with Exeter City, and he began to help the side settle into the contest.
The first half fended with Sid on top, but, despite a number of gilt-edged chances, they went into the break without anything to show for their dominance.
Shortly after the re-start Sidmouth did find the net with Dunn scoring after a slick move. Further chances came – and went, and, as often happen in such games, the hosts netted on a rare attack.

In the final minute Jamie Newberry was hauled down in the box, but all that was given was a corner, despite the home side agreeing that they would have been unable to complain had a spot kick been awarded!
Sidmouth’s Paul Newberry said: “This was a game we should have won long before a penalty that wasn’t given. Once again our bogey team have stopped us winning, but we can only blame ourselves for not taking chances!”
