Sidmouth Raiders Under-11s were 1-0 winners when they visited Colyton for their latest match.

The Raiders got off to a flying start with Soren Hall a constant thorn in the side of the home defence!

Throughout the first half Raiders enjoyed a greater share of the ball and territorial advantage, but it was not until just before the half-time whistle that their dominance paid off when a well-flighted corner from Jack Symington resulted in a mix-up in the home defence and ball ended up in the back of the net.

Colyton hit back after the break and only some top defending from Man of the Match Zac Birkhead and the acrobatics of Raiders goalkeeper Thomas Craig, enabled the lead to be kept intact!

Raiders weathered the storm and finished the game strongly with Elliott Bowyer twice going close to extending the lead.
