Exmouth Town FC U15s net nine goals in victory over Copplestone, while U12s are 4-0 winners at Whipton

Exmouth Town FC Under-15s defeated Copplestone 9-4.

Harry Williams opened the scoring and further goals were scored by Mac Haywood Newlands and Sam Sidgwick to make it 3-0.

When the fleet-footed Ned Mills was hauled down in the area, the home goalkeeper made a superb save to deny Newlands from the penalty spot.

However, a fourth did come soon after with Josh Evans the scorer, netting with an acrobatic over-head kick.

Then Charlie James got his name on the scoresheet before Newlands and Williams both bagged a second goal each to send Town into the break with a 7-0 lead that did not flatter their dominance of the contest.

The home side started second half in similar fashion to how they began the match and they struck twice inside the opening five minutes.

A third followed from the penalty spot before a fourth beat Town  goalkeeper.

Indeed, they would have got a fifth but for a goal line clearance by Corey Mills.

The eighth Town goal, scored by Billie Rowsell from a Newlands free-kick, settled any nerves and late on, Josh Coles drilled the ball home from the penalty spot to complete the scoring.

Town Under-12s were 4-0 winners at Whipton where Jenson Skinner opened the scoring.

The lead was doubled just five minutes later when Caleb Howard swept the ball home from close range following a fine cross played in by George Stone.

In the second-half, the Town youngsters continued to dominate proceedings and a cool finish from Jake Gibbs-Clark made it 3-0.

The final goal, sealing a fine individual performance, was scored by Tom O’Connor.

There was still time left for Ruben Lodge to go mighty close to netting his first ever goal.

The Whipton glovesman did well on a number of occasions including making a smart save to deny Skinner netting a second with an audacious back heel.

Next up for the young Town side is a Saturday (October 31) meeting with Honiton Town.
