Brixington United U9s continued their solid progress this season with a double dose of victories against Central United and Central City.

United dominated the early proceedings against Central and they went ahead when a Liam O’Brien free-kick found then top corner of the net. The Exeter side responded well and it needed some fine saves from United keeper Ieuan Brockway to keep them at bay whilst United continued to look slick on the break. The second and third goals arrived from George Pritchard and another for O’Brien, sending United into the break 3-0 up.

O’Brien completed his hat-trick after the break but that was top be the final score of the contest.

Central City were the second opponents. The hosts were very sharp in the early exchanges and it needed some outstanding goal keeping by young Brockway who also made an early contender for ‘save of the season’ to keep them out. He was eventually beaten but soon after, defender George Gelling began a passing move that ended with Joseph Vincent racing down the wing to cross for Tom Real to send United into the break at 1-1.

The match opened up in the second half with three goals for Brixington in as many minutes from Jack Ottaway, Tom Real and Liam O’Brien. Central weren’t broken though and fought back to score a consolation goal just before the final whistle with United taking the honours with a 4-2 score line.
