Sidmouth Town manager Josh Stunell is delighted with the continued development of teenage skipper Jamie Newbery.

The Manstone Lane chief says: “Jamie has always been a great listener and clearly wants to be as good as he can. His defending improves game by game and this season we have seen him score goals which is a real bonus for the team.”

Stunell continued: “Jamie has developed a knack at set pieces of rising at the right moment when other players, in a crowded area are either on their heels or have completed their jump for the ball!

“When your centre half is carrying such a threat at set pieces in the opposition goal area it’s a real plus for the team.”

Stunell is also delighted that his Town team have begun to put together a decent unbeaten run – Town are unbeaten in six since mid-August.

Stunell says: “The squad has serious strength in depth and what I felt at Liverton was that we finally were able to look at the subs bench and be confident that everyone of the lads on the bench would be able to go on and influence the game at some stage in some shape or form. When you can say that as a manager you can be quite content that you are on the right road!”

Town are without a game this Saturday (October 8) as they have a couple of players on Devon County duty. That means that their scheduled Devon Premier Cup meeting with fellow SWP Eastern Division side Budleigh Salterton will now be played the following Saturday (October 15).
