Sidmouth Warriors Under10s ended their 2015 competitive action in some style, defeating Colyton Chiefs 6-0.
Both teams started well, but it was Warriors who struck first with Tom Cload reacting quickest when a shot was parried by the Colyton glovesman.
The goal clearly relaxed Warriors who began to play with real confidence.
The midfield duo of Jamie Pitter and Dev Nair orchestrated things from central midfield and some of the passing was a delight to see.
Matthew Dunford shot from the edge of the box only to see his goal-bound shot saved by a defender! The resultant penalty saw Dunford drive the ball home to score his first Warriors goal and earn a share of the Man of the Match award. Two became three just before the break when master-marksman Pitter netted.

In the second half Colyton pressed, but were met with a defensive wall in the shape of Callum French, Finn Upsher and goalkeeper Anthony Nita who were collectively more than anything that came their way with young Nita’s handling as confident as ever.
Charley Turley added a fourth before Man of the Match Ben Elsom decided to open up the Colyton defence with an incisive run from just inside the half and he ended the run by rifling the home into the bottom corner of the net.
