10-man Exmouth masterclass to complete incredible season! (Exmouth United 9-0 Twyford Spartans)
Date Posted: 04/05/2019
Exmouth United Under 14s underlined their intentions to compete in Division 1 next season with an outstanding footballing performance against second place Twyford Spartans. The reds started at a significant disadvantage - having only 10 players fit enough to start due to injuries. However, their desire, communication and focus was exemplary as they took hold of the game with some impressive passing moves.
United broke the deadlock when in-form striker Jay Leballeur dribbled into the box to set up midfielder Cayleb Field whose cool left-foot finish found the net. The next breakthrough came when right-back Harry Bowley struck a superb long-range pass to release Leballeur who slotted it home to make it 2-0. More great passing football followed and mighty midfielder Dylan Mogford fed left-winger Seb Harrison whose incredible skill created another chance for Leballeur who duly grabbed his second.
Whilst Exmouth attacked very effectively they were also water-tight at the back with centre-backs Daniel Alford and Bryn Stephens anticipating and sweeping up the danger with an almost telepathic connection.
After the interval United took things up another gear, passing and moving magnificently and competing to win every challenge. Leballeur was on fire up front and not long after completing his hat-trick he was up-ended in the box. It was a special moment as he dispatched the penalty to reach an incredible target of 60 goals in 20 matches!
At 5-0 Leballeur swapped places with keeper Lewis Fulls. The visitors pushed for a goal but the home defence would not give them an inch, Harry Kifli-Reynolds stopping all attempts to break down the right wing.
Fulls now began to pull the strings for Exmouth and he soon put Harrison through for a sixth goal. At this point United had the luxury of giving substitute Finn Glanfield a run out after injury. Glanfield slotted into midfield and soon played a superb through-ball for Fulls to get his first. After grabbing a second goal the replacement striker claimed his hat-trick when right-winger Patryk Plachecki dribbled past four defenders to provide a wonderful assist.
The match finished 9-0, a first-class performance from an excellent hard-working side. Congratulations to all the Exmouth United squad for their brilliant efforts this season!
