AFTER a full two months without a game, Exmouth Town under-16s made a return to action, writes Jon Collins.

Opponents Pinhoe offered a big test but it was Town who started the brighter and were quickly into their stride, passing the ball superbly.

Chances were created, but Pinhoe were also passing the ball well. However, it was Town who broke the deadlock with a fine goal on the half hour.

It was Aidan Dinsdale who got the goal, his second of the season, but Pinhoe responded and were soon level with a well worked goal and they were mighty close to a half time lead, the crossbar coming to Town's rescue!

The game became a contest of end to end football and both teams created chances that, on another day, would have been netted.

With the game heading towards a draw, Tom Taylor picked the ball up and ran at the Pinhoe defence, only to be upended just inside the area.

The referee awarded the spot kick and Luke Bradford tucked it away to seal a 2-1 win.

The victory, Town's sixth successive win in the League, keeps them at the top of the table.

Man of the Match was a close affair with Taylor, Jordan Bishop and Ben Rees all staking claims, the honour eventually going to Rees.
