EXMOUTH Community College won their Under-15 Cup final against Cullompton Community College, played on then magnificent turf that is on the Woodbury Park Golf Club football pitch.The game was quickly into its stride with the Exmouth midfield of Cuthbert, Gibson, Dinsdale and Shipton passing the ball around very well.From that solid base the strikers, Tom Taylor and Dan Fulls, were able to probe the Mid Devon side's defences at every opportunity. Twice in the opening 15 minutes Exmouth scored, first through Fulls and then courtesy of Taylor.Josh Cuthbert made it 3-0 with a close range effort and then, thanks to the combined efforts of the defence of Doble, Dickinson, Wells, Steer and Sharkey, the Cullompton forwards got very little chance to make an impression and Exmouth took their 3-0 advantage into the break.A brace of goals early in the second half from Taylor saw an end to the scoring, one of which was the goal of the game, a shot that curled its way around the Cullompton keeper from some twenty yards out.Tom Morley and Danny Gould both came off the bench to play their part in proceedings over the final 20 minutes as Exmouth saw out the game to win 5-0.Joint managers Andy Bown and Ian Taylor were delighted saying: "The boys certainly saved their best performance of the season for the final. We like to get them playing football and it has to be said that the pitch at Woodbury, which is Premier standard and a credit to the groundsman there, makes playing the game easier.
