Sidmouth 33 v Exmouth 21
Exmouth Under-11s played their opening game of a new season in sunny conditions at Sidford, writes Debbie Percy.
Despite the scoreline the young Cockles gave a good account of themselves and can be very proud of their collective efforts.
The hosts were quickly into their stride and scored a converted try during the opening exchanges.
They added a further try and held the advantage throughout, despite some excellent battling from the Cockles.
The match proved a great start to the season with much to be pleased with; solid work in the scrum, excellent tackles and effective counter rucking.
The Cockles three try scorers were seasoned players Scott Acheson, Finn Musgrove and Ieuan Brockway, with all three convertions tucked away by Liam Daniels. Team effort was the order of the day, but there was also some fine supporting work on display from the rest of this close-knit squad with impressive debuts from George Smale, Keenan Palmer and Ryan Bowyer.
