TEAM NEWS for Saturday 13th Feb

This week we are at home vs Alphington and Heavitree. This is a fixture which was previously postponed and which we have switched to 'home'.

As last week's fixtures were postponed, I have kept teams the same except where parents have informed me that their child is not available.

Please note that I won't be there this week.

Therefore Mike and Steve will need extra support with putting up and taking down goals.

I would also appreciate it very much if one or two parents came along prepared to referee. I have asked the opposition to help out in this regard too and they have agreed so it won't be an onerous task, hopefully just one of the games.

As usual a 1030 KO so please arrive at 0945. Remember full kit, warm clothes, drinks, snacks, studs and shin pads.

Keep an eye on this webpage, emails and texts, should there be a need to postpone. Certainly check before leaving home on Saturday morning.


Utd - Ben, Cayden, Charlie S, Charlie W, Ed W, Joe R, Oscar, Raffy, Sam, William

City - Alastair, Ed B, Finley, Freddie, Jaiden, Joel, Josh S, Matilda, Matthew, Reilly

Following a ​spell of slightly drier weather, everyone seemed pleased that our matches were able to go ahead. The only disappointment was that Exeter Panthers were only able to field one team rather than two.

City were first up against Panthers. The long grass seemed to be causing problems for the more skillful players, preventing them from causing their usual problems for the opposition. Panthers were well organised, closing down space quickly, and very strong and physical in the tackle. Despite all of this City had several good chances well saved and managed to take a first half lead with Jaiden poking in the rebound following a long range Reilly effort. The second half saw City well on top but unable to add to their tally until late on when a quickly worked short corner saw James whip in low hard cross which cannoned off the defenders and rolled just over the line.
Utd were able to field a strong line up and were soon quickly into their stride. From the off they moved the ball well when in possession whilst working hard to win the ball back when they weren't. Cayden opened the scoring with a good finish from Sam's cross.  The second was an amazing strike from Raffy and the third was a close range Raffy shot after a great through ball from Oscar. This was probably the most complete Utd performance all season and the team went home very happy.
Players of the Day - Milo for Utd and Matilda for City
NEXT UP - Training at Exeter School on Monday and away vs Feniton and Hemyock at Hemyock on Saturday

We will endeavour to rearrange postponed games and play them in March/April.

The teams are essentially those which should have played last weekend except for changes due to unnavailability/illness etc.

We are at home to Exeter Panthers and Pink Panthers. As usual KO is 1030 so please arrive at 0945. We will need help with goal posts and if you are willing to referee, come prepared and I will supply the necessary whistle!

​A frosty but bright sunny morning greeted all the players at KGV for a last 16 round of the Cup. Our visitors were Feniton who came as something of an unknown quantity.

Playing up the slope in the first half Central started well although steadily and went behind to Feniton's first attempt on target. All credit to the Central players, they stayed strong and gradually took more and more control forcing a number of good saves from the Feniton keeper and soon equalised with a well taken goal from Jaiden.

Playing with the slope City became more dominant scoring freely through Alastair, Jaiden and Reilly and keeping the excellent Feniton keeper very busy. Playing good football on a difficult surface, the Central players saw out an impressive win.

RESULT - Central 4 v 1 Feniton





Created: Wednesday, 13 January 2016 16:10

This week is Cup week!

In the last round we lost Utd however City went through courtesy of a 4-1 win at Exmouth, taking them into the last 16.

So this week we welcome Feniton to KGV in the next round.

KO as usual is 1030. Please arrive by 1000. Help with the goalposts needed please. Remember full kit, studs, shin pads, drinks, snacks and jackets.

This week there has been less rain and more sunshine so we are hopeful of going ahead. It is likely to stay cold so please make sure players have plenty of layers and an extra jacket should they be on the sidelines for a period.

​Match Report

Following the Christmas break, all of the teams involved were very keen to play despite the weeks of heavy rain we have endured. Fortunately the mini pitches had drained well and although the grass was rather long, we were able to go ahead.
Our visitors to KGV were Copplestone FC and Crediton Youth. Both well run, well organised teams. The conditions proved to be difficult making free flowing football a real challenge for the players. The ground was soft, grass long, it was windy and heavy rain showers were frequent throughout.
In the first round of matches City found themselves in a close battle with Copplestone whilst Utd arguably didn't get the result they deserved in what was a good team performance against Crediton.
The second round of matches had a similar look. Both games highly competitive and played in a good spirit.
A big thank you to parents who helped put up and take down the goalposts and to Jack's Dad for refereeing.
City 3 v 2 Copplestone
Utd 0 v 2 Crediton
City 3 v 2 Crediton
Utd 1 v 4 Copplestone
Goal scorers included Reilly, James, Alastair, Charlie S 
Special mentions for our goalkeepers; Charlie D and Jack both performed really well in very tricky goalkeeping conditions.
Training at Exeter School 11/01/16,
Cup tie v Feniton @ KGV (Please note this only involves City),
23rd Jan away to Cullompton Cobras and Scorpions (players not involved against Crediton and Copplestone will be included)



Created: Wednesday, 06 January 2016 10:35


This week the season resumes with a home tie vs Crediton Youth and Copplestone Tigers.

As I'm sure you will all gather, the pitches are very wet following the amount of rain we have received in recent weeks. However we are set for a drier few days and are therefore hopeful we will go ahead. Keep an eye on this webpage for further updates.

We have a few players unnavailable due to illness, trips to FA Cup matches etc and, as always, there is some rotation. However, we are looking to field two strong teams and I'm sure all of the players are raring to go after the Christmas break.

As usual, KO is 1030. Please arrive by 0945. We do need and appreciate the help given by parents in putting the goals together. Referee volunteers welcome too, whistles provided!

Remember - full kit, drinks, snacks, studs and shin pads.


UTD - Ben, Charlie S, Charlie W, Jack, Joe R, Josh S, Luke, Olly, Raffy, William

CITY - Alastair, Charlie D, Finley, Freddie, James, Jago, Joel, Oscar, Reilly, Sam

Any decision to cancel will be made as early as possible.
