On what was an extremely wet and windy Halloween weekend, all but three of the Sidmouth Town Junior Vikings’ fixtures were postponed.
The youngest of the teams who did manage to see some action were the Under-10s, who journeyed along the A35 to Axminster where two very good young sides awaited them.
Vikings’ Under-10s coach Anthony Griffiths was extremely pleased with the having drawn one and lost one in matches described by the coach as being ‘as wet as an otter’s pocket’.
The Under-12s played their home game with local rivals Ottery St Mary, but despite some good football and a hard-working performance, the strength of the Otters proved a little too much for the Vikings on the day and it was the away team that took the spoils.
The third and final game to survive Saturday’s weather was the one involving the Under-15s, who sit top of the table and were in action against another high-flying outfit, Crediton.
The Vikings were in fine form and raced into a 3-0 half-time lead.
The Mid Devon side came back strongly after the break, but the Vikings’ defence was solid and they added a fourth goal to complete an impressive clean sheet success.
The Vikings’ goals were scored by Ben Elsom, Adam Clinch, Max Nevell and Thomas Nichols and the win means the side stay top of the table.[asp_product id=”17531″]
