There were double strikes from Patryk Plachecki and Jay Leballeur as Exmouth United Under-14s powered to a 5-0 win at Copplestone Colts.

Despite the blustery conditions, which made passing difficult, United served up a fine all-round show and fully deserved their clean sheet win.

In a bright start, United took an early lead when Plachecki broke through on the left and shot deftly past the keeper.

After some great link-up with full-backs Harry Bassett and Harry Bowley, it was right winger Lewis Evans who got the second with a blast from inside the box and United led 2-0 at the break.

In the second-half United continued to create chances, but it was glovesman Lewis Fulls who was busiest during the first period - his bravery and superb saves keeping the hosts at bay.

However, Exmouth gradually overpowered the home side with their superior passing. First Plachecki bagged his second and then striker Jay Leballeur added two late strikes. The pick of the goals saw United piece together a 10-pass move from goalkeeper through defence, midfield and attack.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable display from Exmouth, whose team-play continues to improve.

Team: Lewis Fulls, Harry Bassett, Tom Price, Tommy Foa, Daniel Alford, Cayleb Field, Seb Harrison, Dylan Mogford, Bryn Stephens, Finn Glanfield, Lewis Evans, Jay Leballeur, Patryk Plachecki, Harry Bowley.
