Exmouth Town launched a new home season in the South West Peninsula League Premier Division in real style as they defeated Torpoint Athletic 4-0.

Town, who had won on the opening day, 4-1 at Elburton Villa, before being edged out by a last gasp goal at Tavistock in midweek, were three goals to the good at half-time and added a fourth after the break.

It was Ace High who drew the plaudits for a splendid first half hat-trick, taking his season’s goal count to an impressive five in just three starts and Dan Boere responded to being asked to operate as a make-shift striker, by scoring the only goal of the second half.

Another very impressive statistic from the game was that a crowd of 165 were at Southern Road to see the Town performance.

Town are next in action on the final Saturday of the month with a visit to Callington Town.

The penultimate Saturday of August was not quite as memorable for the Town Reserves as they went down 15-0 in their opening Devon and Exeter League Premier Division game at a Cronies side that are many pundits tips to win the division this season.
