Sidmouth Warriors Under-12s shared four goals in their Exeter and District League Division One home meeting Lympstone.

Two well-matched teams defied the weather to produce a fantastic game of football thoroughly enjoyed by players, coaches and watching parents.

Warriors have made their home base this season Salcombe Hill Recreation Field, aka ‘The Scout Field’, and so visiting teams are being treated to one of the most scenic venues in the league - drawing compliments even on a wet November morning!

A half-time score of 0-0 did not do justice to the entertaining football on offer and the Lympstone goal somehow survived an almighty scramble when no less than three Warriors could have scored!

Sidmouth bossed the second half , when Tim Goody was felled in the box, Joe Ashby held his nerve to dispatch the penalty. Lympstone equalised against the run of play, but back came Sidmouth, and, after another excellent interchange of passes, debutant Connor Brown capped an eye-catching display with a superb long-range shot over the keeper.

Football can be cruel, and, with just two minutes to go, Sidmouth let two points slip away conceding from a corner. But, nothing could take away from a great performance and a hugely enjoyable match.

The two biggest shifts on a morning of lots of excellent contributions, came from Ollie Keast and Jack Goodman.
