Action from the Brixington Blues 6-0 win over Exmouth United in an Exeter and District Youth League Under-13 fixture


Brixington Blues Under-13s served up a scintillating second half show as they defeated near neighbours Exmouth United 6-0.

Skippered by Jake Haggerty, Blues, with the captain and Ben Geare quickly into their midfield work, fashioned the first shot of the contest with Elliott Bowyer denied by a good block.

United hit back, but the Blues back line of Finn Glanfield, Sam Reay and Lewis Ayley stood firm.

The deadlock was broken on the half hour when Haggerty and Thomas Rowsell combined to set up Jack Drew-Cull who saw his powerful shot fly through a crowd of players before nestling in the United net.

There was a second goal before the break, scored by an unfortunate defender, turning the ball past his own goalkeeper. United contributed much to the first half and 2-0 down at the break was probably harsh on them!

The second half began with Blues fielding a changed formation and Blues certainly looked more lively and indeed, more likely to unlock the impressive United defence.

Haggerty was again involved in the build-up, this time trading passes with Harrison Fox prior to Ethan Beverley rifling Blues into a 3-0 lead.

United struck back, but such was the Blues defending that glovesman Russ Bracey was only rarely called into action, though he did make a couple of competent saves to earn his clean sheet.

Blues made a change with Jayden Marles introduced from the bench and, with his first touch, drew a splendid save from the United glovesman.

Joel Knott, making a welcome return to action after an injury, linked up with Haggerty and once again Beverley was the beneficiary as he scored his second to make it 4-0 and Beverley was soon celebrating his hat-trick as he headed home an Oliver Bradley cross.

The sixth and final goal came after a Knott strike was parried by the United glovesman only for the ball to fall for Zac Brown who tucked it away to complete the scoring.
