Action from Brixington Blues Under-12 and their meeting with North Tawton that they won 4-0.


Brixington Blues Under-12s were 4-0 winners at their Withycombe Raleigh home when they entertained North Tawton in an Exeter and District Youth League game.

It was a cagey opening 10 minutes as both sides looked to take command of the game.

The first good spell of pressure fell to Blues as they forced several corners in quick succession. After a couple of dangerous deliveries, Sammy Sidgwick whipped over the killer ball, dropping it right into the danger zone. Bobby Pond was first to react and found the back of the net with a clinical finish to give Blues the lead.

The visitors worked hard to get a foothold back in the game, and arguably dominated the remainder of the first half. But despite the best efforts of their left winger, no goal was forthcoming.

Ben Jeffery in the Blues goal made several good saves to maintain the 1-0 lead in the break.

The second half saw Blues extend their lead with Thomas Dean rifling home a free-kick from just outside the penalty area.

Dean struck again moments later, applying a clinical finish to his own strong penetrating run.

North Tawton struggled to make any headway through the second half, and with just over 10 minutes left, Dean completed his hat-trick this time with a low drive to the right of the diving glovesman, this after the scorer has linked well with Luca Brind in the approach play.

It was a huge positive for the whole team that the win was with a clean sheet – much of that down to good strong performances from both Max Neilson and Ben Jeffery in goal. The award for Player of the Week was claimed by Cameron Horne, who put in an impressive shift in midfield.
