Busy Weekend for Crediton Youth
Another busy weekend of football for Crediton Youth FC again saw some excellent results.
Observing a minutes silence for Prince Phillip
The U16’s continued their fine run with a 5-3 victory away at Cullompton with goals from Freddie Blackburn, Kofi Firth, Sam Price and a Lewis Heywood brace.
Unfortunately, the 15’s lost a tight game down at Lords Meadow 3-1 against Okehampton. Finn Warren getting the consolation goal.
Bragging rights went to Crediton in the U14’s derby against Copplestone Pumas’s. Callum Lethbridge, Morgan Vincent and a Josh Snell penalty doing the damage for Credy.
The U12’s continued their fine form with a 3-0 home victory over Heavitree Youth. Hayden Leach, Ollie Storey and Zach Mildon sharing the goals.
Desperate to get back playing the U8’s, were let down by their opposition and were very grateful to the U9’s who agreed to come down and play friendly fixtures, to ensure they got back playing.
Sunday fixtures saw the U12 girls return to action in the North Devon League Plate semi final, with a 5-1 victory over Bideford girls. A fine team performance, with a Heather Singer hatrick and a Ruby Turner double saw them through to the final.
The U14 girls also had a fine morning, goals from Hannah Lindsey 2, Kaitlyn Rickard and Kayleigh Turner saw them get a 4-1 win against Ottery St Mary.
Another proud moment for the club saw Jess Sandland make her debut for Exeter City women FC in their 5-0 County cup quarter final victory over Feniton. Jess has graduated from the girls development recently after turning sixteen. The club wish her every success in the future.
When girls football returned to the club in 2015, Jess was part of that first side. She has always been a great role model and ambassador for the club.
With the club being asked not to use the car parks at the leisure centre on Saturday mornings to assist the vaccination program. The club would like to say a massive thank you to the Crediton Rugby club for allowing them to use parking on their pitches at the moment to ease congestion at Lords Meadow.
