Exmouth Amateurs 0, West Exe Youth 1
Exmouth Amateurs were edged out in a close contest against a side that stated the day one place above them in the Exeter and District Youth League Division One table.
Ammies made the worst possible start, paying for their sluggishness by conceding a goal inside three minutes!
After the early blow it took Ammies some time to recover and finally get into the pace of the game.
A half-time ‘chat’ with an unhappy coach did the trick for, after the break, Ammies looked far more like their usual selves!
They dominated the opening 15 minutes of the second half, but, despite some excellent approach play could not find a finish to match their endeavour. It was with some relief that the home side welcomed the full-time whistle.
On Saturday Ammies entertain an Okehampton side that beat tem 2-0 on the opening day.
Revenge for that will see Ammies climb above the seventh placed visitors in the table.
