Sidmouth Under-9 Warriors started their new campaign with a trip to meet West Hill and Hemyock, writes Chris Roberts

What should have been a 40-minute journey became one of a full hour as the convoy of cars took a number of wrong turns and ran up some dead ends on their way to Mid Devon!

The first game saw Warriors play West Hill and they made a flying start, racing into a two-goal lead thanks to a Ben Fisher brace.

With some slick passing the youngsters continued to create chances and, after Fisher had completed his hat-trick Charlie Roberts netted twice to send Warriors into the break with a nap hand lead.

The Wasps made a bright start to the second half and Warriors keeper Freddie Roberts was at full stretch to twice deny them a goal back. Once the Warriors regained control further goals followed through Freddie Eul-Baker and Gabriel Roberts before Roberts sealed his hat-trick with a fine solo goal to seal an 8-0 triumph.

In their second game they continued to pass the ball well and first half goals from Oliver Loosemore and Gabriel Roberts gave Warriors a half-time lead.

After the break Ben Fisher scored and Freddie Eul-Barker tucked away a penalty to make it 4-0 as Warriors completed a second successive clean sheet victory of the morning.
