Three Exmouth United teams win plate at Ottery Tournament!
Published: 7th July 2017
Exmouth United made it a Hat Trick of stunning victories on Sunday as three of their squads came home with silverware in Ottery St Mary’s inaugural 6 a side tournament.
First up the Under 8’s produced a stunning performance to beat favourites Exeter Panthers 3-1 in a pulsating semi final, where, despite going a goal down in the first minute, goals from Thomas Brooking, Reuban Stock and Evan Walkey saw the Exmouth side progress into the final. Defenders Nathan Briggs and Leo French kept the Panthers at bay superbly and when called upon keeper Tommy Barrow showed remarkable composure and reliability between the sticks.
In the final they met a physical and determined Heavitree United where their metal was well and truly tested and they did not disappoint. Exmouth’s young chargers dominated possession but in the searing heat they struggled to put the ball in the net. The game then went to extra time where despite it being one way traffic the Heavitree keeper was in inspired form as he kept out the attacking Exmouth force with a string of great stops and it was inevitable that the game went to a penaltly shoot out. Thomas Brooking calmly converted a retaken first before Tommy Barrow produced a fantactic save to give Exmouth the upper hand. The lead was doubled when Leo French produced a crisp strike and Evan Walkey then ensured victory as he stroked home the winning spot kick to win the final 3-1 on penalties. Exmouth United Under 8’s (L-R) Leo French, Issac Stock, Thomas Brooking, Tommy Barrow, Evan Walkey, Kieran Wreford, Reuban Stock, Nathan Briggs.
In the next final it was the turn of Exmouth United Under 10’s as they won their Plate Final with a dramatic win over Broadclyst. two competitive teams contested a very even match with chances at both ends. A defensive unit of Charlie Tate and Olly Price gave United a firm base to build attacks from with keeper Richard Kew providing safe hands throughout. The midfield industry of Joseph Cockman, Charlie Rogers and Jack Gittoes-Davies created concerted pressure on the Broadclyst goal. Man of the Match Joseph Goodall dictated the dynamic tempo of the match. As the game went in to a 'Golden Goal' period Exmouth benefited from a deflected shot and an own goal meant they won their first Plate. Richard Kew, Olly Price, Charlie Tate, Joseph Cockman, Charlie Rogers, Joseph Goodall, Jack Gittoes-Davies.
In the last final of the day, the Under 12’s produced a remarkable comeback as they faced as stern and resolute Central United in the final. They started slowly and found themselves 2-0 down and so with a mountain to climb they had to give it right go in the 2nd half. They sensed hope when Bryn Stephens sent a bullet header into the net to pull one back in the early part of the 2nd half and with their tails up, Exmouth went searching for the equaliser and it was no surprise that Lewis Evans poked in a shot from a Tom Price pass to bring the game level. With 2 minutes to go and with there looking like there was only 1 winner it was Price who topped off a great comeback by slotting in the winner from close-range. Exmouth United U12s: Lewis Alford, Harry Bassett, Owen Brady, Lewis Evans, Tommy Foa, Seb Harrison, Tom Price, Bryn Stephens.
