Rob Hall, playing his final game for Exmouth Town reserves before departing for New Zealand, blew the chance to end in glory as he fired a penalty wide of the mark - it did not affect the outcome of the game though, as Town chalked up an eighty successively victory.

Exmouth Town reserves made it eight league wins out of eight when they defeated UAU Exeter 3-0, writes John Dibsdall.

Whilst this was ultimately a comfortable victory, Town made heavy weather of breaking down a stubborn and resolute defence, and it needed a penalty midway through the first half to steady their nerves.

Josh Kirby made no mistake from the spot to give Town the lead with his fifteenth goal of the season.

The second half saw a more composed Town performance that created many chances most of which went begging.

Their dominance was finally rewarded when Dave Cooling scored twice to bring his personal goal tally to thirteen for the season.

Rob Hall playing his last game before leaving for New Zealand was given the chance to finish in style when Town were awarded another penalty. Unfortunately his effort threatened the donkeys in the adjoining field more than the keeper!

We wish Rob all the very best on his travels.

This Saturday Town travel to Honiton (kick-off 2.15pm). having already defeated the Mountbatten Park side 5-1 in the home fixture and will be looking for a similar result to maintain their lead in the league and of course, take their current run to a ninth straight win.
