Warriors in fine form
Crediton Youth 1, Sidmouth Warriors 7
Sidmouth Warriors U12s got their league campaign up and running with a comprehensive victory away to Crediton Youth, writes Simon Jones.
Elliot Perez scored after only two minutes, Silk then made it 2-0 for the Warriors before Crediton had a goal ruled out for offside. From a free kick Crediton scored from the rebound to make the half time score 2-1.
After a long half time team talk the Warriors came out fired up for the second half with Tremlett making it 3 after only 5 minutes.
Mead, Hayman and Buckland were strong at the back this allowed the team to get the ball down and pass it around. Cooke was having a field day spraying the ball to the wings and putting great balls through for the strikers. One of these through balls led to Silk scoring the fourth then 5 minutes later he completed his hat-trick.

Central FC 3, STJV U12 Raiders 1
Both teams shared the possession of the ball throughout the game and the first half ended in 1-1 deadlock, writes Mark Skelding
Central scored first with a long range shot from outside the area. Sidmouth came straight back with an equaliser from a shot by Reuben Raffell which was saved, rebounded back off the goalkeeper, and was knocked in by a defender.
With the first half ending in deadlock, Sidmouth were confident that they still had a chance of winning, but the next goal came from Central with another long range rocket of a shot which the goal keeper had no chance of saving and then a further Central goal came late on in the game sealing their victory.
Previous results for both teams had been very similar, so Sidmouth were hoping that they could have just had the edge to bring home a win and they played well throughout the game so at the end of the day perhaps it was only Central’s home advantage which gave them the edge.
Sidmouth FC U13s 2, Thorverton 2
Great play saw Sid take the lead when Jack DeWinton opened the scoring, writes Paul Newbery.
Thors hit back but great defending from Dylan King & Jamie Newbery saw Sid go into the halftime break with a one goal advantage. Thors equalised but Billy Rudolph put Sidmouth ahead again. With seconds remaining Thors levelled again.
This was a great game of quality football.Then for much of the half both teams played some real quality football but with both defences were superb Charlie Freeman went through on goal & although the defender tried to take him out he stayed on his feet & only a good save prevented him from scoring. From the resulting corner to ball found its way to Rudolph who hit a unstoppable shot to put Sid in front Sid held out until literally seconds remained when Thors equalised. A huge disappointment but a great game of football with both sides outstanding.
Sidmouth Town JV Sunday U10s 13
Feniton U10s 0
Sids made it seven wins out of seven in the league with this result, and are the only undefeated team in the league now, writes Rob Fowler.
Goals came from Connor McNamara –Campbell 4, Alex Mitchell 3, Scott de Gruchy 2 , Sam Pyne 2, Jake Jones 1 and Ryan Griffiths 1. Sid have now scored 67 goals and conceded only two.
Sidmouth Town U10s 2,
Feniton U10s 0
Feniton sit above Sidmouth in the league so this was a great result, writes Rob Fowler.
At half-time (0-0), manager Woolley, made two changes (Ryan Griffiths and Jordan Fowler) and saw almost instant rewards. Fowler scored and Will Hollis added the second. To Feniton’s credit, they kept pushing forward, but the defence of Griffiths and Pyne held the upper hand. Ensall made some great saves when called upon. Man of the Match was Sam Pyne.
Sidmouth Town U10s 2, Ottery St Mary U10s 0
The second game was just as tough as this is a local derby for Sids and every one was up for this game, writes Rob Fowler.
Sids were on the attack from the first whistle, Rush, Fowler, Hollis were on top in the midfield and Mitchell caused all sorts of problems for Ottery with pace and control.
Sids were the better team passing the ball, tackling and creating good chances and winning the ball back quickly when they lost it.
Two great goals from Mitchell won this game for Sids but the hard work in midfield and defence was excellent and went a long way in winning this game. A special mention goes to Will Hollis, who was Man of the Match.
Sidmouth squad: H Ensall, S Pyne, R Griffiths, D Lascelles, T Wood, T Rush, W Hollis, J Fowler, A Mitchell.
Sidmouth Town U8 Raiders 1, Bradninch 4
After a long lay off, Sidmouth looked rusty and soon fell 2-0 behind, writes Chris Roberts.
Raiders created more chances in the second half and it became more end to end.
Raiders got their third goal of the game, but the Raiders kept going and finally got the goal they deserved from Oliver Loosemore, then followed some great goal mouth action with sidmouth believing the come back was on, but Bradninch held fast and right at the end got their fourth, leaving the final score 4-1.
