Sidmouth Warriors 1, Central FC 3 Sidmouth Warriors Under-10s were edged out in their latest match, writes Justin Ashby.

Always up for a challenge, the Warriors invited Central FC to play a nine-a-side friendly, the Exeter side currently sitting five points clear at the top of the West Division.

The match was split into four 15 minute quarters and the effervescent home team took a deserved early lead when a lacerating move was turned into his own net by a flummoxed Central defender!

The visitors were clearly not used to such a high-tempo onslaught and the Warriors brilliantly contained Central until the final quarter.

Alas, tired legs and minds then set in and once Central equalised they showed their mettle and took a hold of the game, quickly adding two more break-away goals. So close to a hard-earned victory, the boys were left shattered and defeated!
