Lympstone Youth followed up their impressive 5-0 win over CS Pumas on the first Saturday of 2018 by bagging a 3-1 victory over St Martins on the second Saturday of the year.

It was the visiting side who struck first, netting midway through the first half, but Lympstone were level again within just two minutes when the impressive Tom Garland was tripped in the area after beating three opposition players and Billy Worthington drilled the resultant penalty into the bottom corner of the net.

The scores remained level into the second half and, shortly after the restart, Lympstone glovesman Brad Worthington pulled off a fine fingertip save to deny the visitors a second before, at the other end of the pitch, Alfie Jones out-paced the St Martin’s defence to score with a fine finish.

Lympstone then began to dominate the contest with full backs Seb Pope and Murphy Boltrukiewicz constantly causing problems on the overlap.

The home side got a richly deserved third with 15 minutes remaining when Billy Worthington curled a superb free-kick from the edge of the area into the top corner of the net.

In what was a fine all-round performance, special mention must be made of the contributions from midfielders Erin Assleman, Thomas King, Jack Draper and Tom Woodhead, who dominated the later stages, with Woodhead going close to getting a fourth Lympstone goal when his powerful shot zipped marginally wide of the goal.
