They have followed up their earlier success at the Exeter City Youth Academy tournament held at Cullompton Rangers by winning competitions at Colyton and Twyford.

First up at Colyton where the players on duty were; Russell Bracey, Jake Haggerty, Jack Drew-Cull, Ben Geare, Luke Paramore, Ed James, Lewis Ayley and Oliver Bradley, Blues won all their group matches before defeating Exeter Panthers 3-0 in the semi-finals. That saw them into the final where they took on CS Cougars in what was a close encounter eventually won by Blues 1-0.

A feature of the Blues success at Colyton was that the team only conceded one goal the whole competition!

The day after winning at Colyton, Blues ventured across to Tiverton tom play in the Twyford Spartans tournament where their squad comprised of Russell Bracey, Jake Haggerty, Jack Drew-Cull, Elliott Bowyer, Luke Paramore, Harrison Fox, Sonny Cox and Harrison King.

In the group stages, Blues lost one game and so finished second in their group. That took them into a quarter-final meeting with hosts Twyford Spartans who they beat 2-0. Heavitree were the semi-final opposition and the Heavies were beaten 4-0.

In the final, Blues made sure of a second trophy in two days with a 4-1 win over Somerset side Wembdon.
