EXMOUTH Town Under-16 went into their Juventus League game with Heavitree Youth with a brace of wins behind them.

Against a side who started the day immediately above them in the table, Town made a positive start to the game.

They quickly began to dominate proceedings with a good mix of passing football whilst also resolute in defence and, at the opposite end of the pitch, striker Tom Steer was leading the Exeter side a merry dance.

Even the 10th minute loss through injury, of influential skipper Billy Gibson, failed to knock an impressive Town out of their stride.

It was no surprise when the strong running of Steer was rewarded with the opening goal.

A lapse in defensive concentration allowed the Heavies back into the game, but the lead was quickly regained with an element of the spectacular!

Luke Bradford placed a free kick fully 40 yards from goal. Took a stp back and smahed it into the net!

A second from the lively Steer put Town fully in charge and they went into the brwak with a 3-1 advantage.

The Exeter side had a real go in the second half but the Town defence was more than up to the task, marshalled superbly by stand-in skipper, and Man of the Match, Matt Amor.

The Heavitree pressure did see them score a second, but Town were not to be denied and closed out the game to bank the points with a 3-2 victory.
