Sidmouth Warriors Under-9s below-par, but still have enough to bag win double
Sidmouth Warriors 6, Dawlish 1 Sidmouth Warriors 4, Newton 2 They say that the sign of a good team is to win when you’re not playing well.
Well, the Sidmouth Warriors Under-9 did this twice on Saturday morning!
After a tentative first five minutes at home to Dawlish, the Warriors fell behind to a stunning own-goal deflected off two Vikings and wrong-footing the goalie.
Was it to be one of those days? Well, thankfully, a quick equaliser by Bradley Hill settled the team and second half pressure saw further goals from Jamie Salter (2), Louis Silk, Stanley Richardson and Samuel Rice.
The Warriors then took on Newton and once again there was no shortage of effort, just a very ‘end of term’ feel to the game! Chances went astray, simple passes weren’t completed and the midfield struggled to hold their shape when the ball was lost. However, to their great credit, the boys fought hard and took the game to a strong Newton side. Scorers for the Warriors were Joe Ashby, Stanley Richardson (his a lovely team goal), Louis Silk and Toby Hill.

A special mention to Jamie Salter for a great morning’s work – shouting for the ball, taking players on and his intelligent positioning in attack was rewarded with two well-taken goals. Legend!
