Broadclyst 2, Sidmouth 3 Sidmouth travelled to Broadclyst for this latest Exeter and District Youth League game with a bare eleven players.

They found an unforgiving surface at the venue and, with a strong wind, it made for a difficult morning.

However, Sid began well with some slick inter-play and passing involving Jack DeWinton, Jacob Rowe and Tyler Wellman.

The home side adopted a direct approach to their game, but got little change out of the visiting defensive unit of Al Forsyth, Alex Stone, Dylan King and ‘the marshall’ skipper Jamie Newbery.

All this left Sidmouth gloves man Jake Sellick enjoying a quiet first half!

After the break the home side had the benefit of the elements and their direct approach paid off as they levelled with a clinical finish.
