|Under 13 East Devon League
Ottery St Mary 7 - Uplyme Youth 0
On a raw and blustery Sunday at Ottery’s ground, the under-strength Uplyme team kicked off and despite having only ten players took up the attack but, lacking up front numbers, failed to test Ottery’s keeper. Ottery then took the ball to the other end but didn’t trouble Uplyme’s keeper, Brett James. Ten minutes of fairly even play were ended when Ottery slipped in two goals in quick succession. The Uplyme defence and keeper and were kept busy for the remainder of the first half and prevented any more score until the final minute when Ottery’s third goal was scored.
In the second half Uplyme’s game featured Anthony Simes’ long punts up the pitch, terrier like runs by captain Sam Jones, sound defensive clearing and goal keeping whilst Ottery played more of a passing game. This kept the numerous crowd entertained with chances at both ends but Uplyme’s lack of a full squad told and Ottery scored four more times. The final score was 7 – 0.
Uplyme’s Man of the Match to judged be Sam Jones. Uplyme Youth’s next match is at home to Colyton on Sunday 10th February, kick-off is at 2pm.
