Brixington Blues U15 cup action versus Newton Fire


Brixington Blues girls Under-15s are eagerly looking forward to their Devon Cup final appearance later next month.

Prior to their thrilling semi-final win over Newton Fire, the Blues girls had also accounted for Crediton.

They are yet to discover who their final opposition will be, though it is likely to be table-topping Moors, who are hot favourites to defeat Plymouth in the other semi-final.

Tiverton-based Moors are without doubt the top girls’ team in the age group, but the Blues girls can take heart from the knowledge that they have fared better than most against Moors, losing just 3-1 when the Tiverton side have scored a lot of goals against most teams in the league.

What’s more, when the pair met last season as Under 14 teams Blues came out on top!

As for next season, Blues will be staying together to play as an Under-16 team. Playing nine-a-side, they can operate with a squad of 15 and do currently have one spare slot in their squad.

The team still has six league games to play before the May 20 Devon final, which is being played at Tiverton High School. The Blues girls play their home matches on the ground at Withycombe Common, close to the Archery Club and they train on the all-weather surface at the Exeter City training ground.

In terms of their team sponsors, the Blues enjoy the support of computer company Solve IT, and are grateful to Kris Daniels for the sponsorship in respect of the team jackets; Love Donuts (Jade and Ben Priestley Smith) has sponsored the Blues home kit.
