THE Mayor of Crediton, Cllr Frank Letch, presented Crediton Town Council’s highest honour, a Town Plate, to a Crediton man for his services to youth football in the town, at a ceremony in Crediton’s Town Square this week.

Cllr Letch said of Crediton Youth FC’s Chairman, Martin Daniel: “It is our pleasure to give Martin a Town Plate.

“It shows our recognition for all the hard work he does over the years as a football coach, chairman, treasurer and secretary of Crediton Youth FC.

“The club has 250 young people on the books which is testament to his and the club’s hard work.”

Martin said: “On behalf of myself and the club, we are very honoured to be recognised.

“Crediton is a very sporting town and clubs like ours fill a void to keep young people occupied and entertained.

“We could not do what we do without the hard work of everyone at the club, players, coaches, managers and committee.

“It is their hard work which makes the club a success and I accept this award on behalf of everyone.”

Mr Daniel said that more trainers and coaches would be welcomed by Crediton Youth FC.

Mr Daniel has previously been recognised for his voluntary work to local football by the Football Association at an annual awards ceremony held at Wembley Stadium prior to a Community Shield match between Leicester City and Manchester United.

Martin had previously been presented the award for “Outstanding Contribution to Community Football” by Devon County FA and was one of six finalists present at the ceremony for its top award “The Peoples Award.”

Martin had been a stalwart of Morchard Bishop Football Club for 20 years and a manager for Crediton Youth FC for many years.

October 2020

Crediton Youth U13’s were presented with a new kit kindly sponsored by Orchard Packaging, SANDS Engineering and JS Engineering, due to COVID 19 the annual football tournament was cancelled and these 3 businesses kindly decided to donate their 6 a-side sponsorship money to our U13s for a NEW kit supplied by Raging Bull.

The club were also fortunate to have KEWILLJOE Structural Designers sponsor the U13s with Body Suits to keep the boys warm on these coming cold winter mornings  - picture taken prior to their recent game against Exmouth United.


The season has started well for the U13s after Two Home wins followed up with a Third versus Exmouth United – The boys went onto to win 8-1, with Bjorn Caruana scoring four, Joseph Hopkins two, with Jack Brimilcombe and Will Cridge getting one each. 


The club would again like to express their thanks to the sponsors for their continued support.


Other results from Saturday saw Crediton Youth U8 United & Rangers make their debut in the Exeter & District Youth league with three wins and one defeat away at the Dawlish. The U10 Panthers and Pumas won two and drew two against Exeter Panthers and Pink Panthers. The U12’s won 8-2 away at West Exe Youth, and the U15’s had a  3-2 win away at Central Giants with Finn Warren grabbing a hatrick. The U16’s unfortunately went down 5-2 away at Elmore. 

The recent Saturday morning fixtures at Crediton Youth FC, gave the club a long overdue opportunity to say a big thank you, to two long standing club committee members and ex officers. 

Stuart and Karen Maule joined the committee a number of years ago as their son Fraser had played his youth football at the club.. Stuart served as treasurer for many years alongside Karen, who took on the roles of secretary and tournament secretary. They brought great business and administration skills to the roles and have played a major part in the development of the club.

On their entry to the pitches at Lords Meadow, they were welcomed by a guard of honour from the Under 12,13 and 14's players who had home fixtures that morning.

Presentations of gifts were made by club Chairman Adrian Harvey and Secretary Sabrena Philp in appreciation of all their years of service. These included a framed print of the River Exe at Turf Locks and a photo album of Club Memories and other gifts.

The couple then spent the morning walking around the pitches watching the morning fixtures. They were treated to some great games, with the Under 14's winning 2-1 against Exmouth Town, the Under 13's 7-0 against Central Youth Reds and the Under 12's sharing the points with Stoke Hill in a thrilling 0-0- draw. With the news filtering through that the only other Crediton Youth side in action that morning, the U16's had won 7-1 away at Exmouth United capped another fine morning for the club.

Many coaches and committee members attended to say their farewells to the couple who hope to move to Scotland once Covid regulations allow.

Club Chairman, Adrian Harvey added "Stuart and Karen have been tremendous servants to the club, with most who have benefitted from their hard work and support being totally unaware of how much commitment they both put into the club. The committee thanks them for all their hard work, which has taken the club to it's established position it finds itself today. We wish them both all the very best for the future, and look forward to seeing them back at Lords Meadow sometime soon.
