Exmouth Amateurs 0, Central Rovers 0

Exmouth Amateurs Under-12s hosted title challenging Central Rovers looking to impress again after there 1-0 cup victory over Brixington last time out.

These two teams drew 2-2 in the reverse fixture in Exeter before Christmas and this contest proved to be just as close!

Central made an impressive start, but did not take their chances. Ammies were restricted to a single attack in the first half. The pattern of play was similar in the second half when the Ammies defence worked superbly as a unit in front of impressive gloves man Ben Dawson. Twice the visitors struck the frame of the goal, but Ammies deserved to take something for their contribution to a fantastic game.

This is only the second time this season that Central have failed to score in a match
