The weather finally allowed the majority of Crediton Youth FC sides to return to action last weekend.
It was league cup quarter final day for the U13’s. They powered their way through to the semi’s with a emphatic win away at Culm Sampford Bobcats. Leading the goal scoring was Rhys Edby with six, Harry Norman and Zach Mildon grabbing hatricks and doubles from Hayden Leach and Ollie Baker with Ben Fantham and Max Collins completing the scoring.
The U8’s hosted Broadclyst and had two wins and two draws, but missed chances and the woodwork cost them dearly. Dexter Hughes leading the goal scoring for them. Neneh Richards was outstanding in defence and Ben Wheldal in goal pulled off some outstanding saves.
Also at home were the U11’s against Starcross. They went into half time 2-0 down, only to find themselves 3-2 up within five minutes of the restart. But at the final whistle they had to settle for a 4-4 draw. Their goals coming from a Hayden Richardson Miler hatrick and Jimmy Orchard,
The other game at Lords Meadow saw the U12’s after a slow start run out 6-2 winners against Twyford Spartans. Seb Roche with four and Alfie Williams Greenwood and Zac Miller grabbing their other goals.

Sunday saw the U11 girls get a 3-2 win away at Torquay United Community Sports Yellows, with Gracie Clements, Gracie Pugsley and Lexi Mullen getting their goals. Players of the match were Annabel Schuster and Gracie Pugsley and congratulations to Eva who had a fantastic game on her debut.
