Stoke Hill 0, Exmouth Amateurs 1
Ammies Under-12s returned from a visit to fancied Exeter-based Stoke Hill with all three points after a superb collective display.
The hosts began brightly, but the Ammies defence of Bennett, Crescall and Cuthbert denied them any clear cut goal scoring opportunities and half-time arrived with neither keeper beaten.
After the break Ammies, prompted by the busy Lewis Cockayne and Sam Wheeler, began to create chances and when Cockayne was brought down in the area skipper Max Handford slotted the spot kick and give Ammies a deserved lead.
The home side threw everything they had at Ammies, but with central midfield duo Danny Lewis alongside his skipper, working hard and the defence making big tackles the final whistle arrived with Ammies still leading, much to the joy of a large band of travelling supporters.
Ammies team: Ben Dawson, Cameron Bennnett, Josh Crescall, Lewis Cuthbert, Danny Lewis, Max Handford, Luke Davis, Oscar Moyle, Sam Wheeler, Lewis Cockayne, Ryan Shapcott.
