Sidmouth Warriors lifted the Exeter and District Youth League Plate trophy after a thrilling 3-2 success over Heavitree.

The match, played at the Mid Devon home of Tiverton Town saw Warriors make a stunning start, bossing the contest from the opening whistle.

Jack Howe opened the scoring with a terrific individual effort, ultimately slotting the ball beyond the keeper from an acute angle.

Thomas Mead rifled home a free-kick to double the lead and it was 3-0 when George Gelling latched onto a through-ball, before lifting it up and over the out-rushing Heavies goalkeeper.

The Exeter side hit back just before the break, but Warriors were fully deserving of their half-time 3-1 advantage.
