Bitton 0 Town 1 

A great day out with a trip up the M5 car park.

Town took the lead through a great finish by Ace High after 25 mins. 

A  really even first half with town slightly edging it.

In the second half Bitton had a lad sent off for an off the ball incident which only the linesman saw. 

Town had a nervous ten minutes at the end with a fantastic save from Chris Wright the town keeper.

Town deserved this hard fought victory . The Att was 92 with approx 30 from Town.

The bar was fun after, nice club. Looking forward to Parkway on Wednesday.

Parkway 1 Town 0 

A Great game which Parkway settled into nicely in the first half. Town grew into the game and played well but gave the ball away a little to often .

The goal came when Town were looking for a free kick which wasn`t given and switched off. This gave Adam Carter the room to finish smartly .

The second half was open and Town gave as much as that Parkway did. Town came close about 20 mins from time when Harris had a powerful drive tipped over by the keeper. Parkway were hanging on towards the end but probably just edged it, if you were a neutral (Which Im not)

Towns first League defeat of 2019 (The last was boxing day at home to Cully) 

ATT 305 which around 50 were from Town . UTT

Yate 2 Town 2

So we start the day with our coach driver getting lost enroute and arriving at the ground at 2.25 (We left at 11.20)

So a delayed kick off in searing heat at 3.05. 

Town were out of the traps first and looked good against a team two leagues higher.

Denny scored a deflected goal after about 20 mins. This woke the home side up.

They played some great football on the bowling green surface of a pitch.

It was no surprise when they pulled level after about 40 min.

The second half was more of the same with Yate passing the ball around well and Town defending for there lives UNTIL

Yates keeper forgot why he was in goal (You know what I mean) and tried to dribble the ball past Jordan Harris, who promptly took the ball off him and finished from a tight angle.

Yate were affected by this and Town pressed but couldn`t get the third.

Yate did pull level after 80 min and Town did have to battle to get the draw. The boys were clearly knackered at the end of a tough week.

A great effort this week with a win at Bitton a tough game at Parkway Wednesday and Yate yesterday. The replay is Tues 3 rd Sept at Southern Road (Not a bowling green) UTT

Att 240 (40 from Town)

That's a cracking result against Yate.  I watched them win 4-0 against Taunton a couple of weeks ago and they surprised me.  The lad James Ollis on loan from Bath, and Luke Spokes up front were both very good players.

Good luck in your replay.

Exmouth Town 3 Brislington 2

This was an entertaining Vase game which Town could have put too bed early.

Town took the lead after about 20 min when A Jordan Harris shot cannoned in via a defender and the keepers face!!!!

Brislington took advantage of Town switching off, the forwards was in acres of space to nod home.

Callum  Shipton restored the lead after 40 min from a tight angle. HT 2-1

In the second half Brislington started brightly, but didnt really threaten and when Jordan Harris scored the third, you would have thought that was it.

Brislington pulled a goal back in the 86th Minute but didn`t come close to getting the tie level.

Fair play to the Brislington boys they stayed until 7pm in the clubhouse having a few beers . 

A decent bunch

So its Cadbury Heath away on the 14th in the next round .

ATT 161(I think) UTT

Exmouth Town 2 Yate 0

 

Well what a game .

Yate are a decent side ,but are used to playing on a billard table pitch. Credit though to both teams this was a proper Cup tie. End to End ,

plenty of chances and saves. Yate hit the bar and Harris had a one on one saved in the first half .

HT 0-0

Second half Town went for it , Ben Steer got on the end of a cross which the keeper fumbled under pressure then Arron Denny finished of a great run From Ace High.

Town then defended for there lives and kept hitting Yate on the break. Town hit the woodwork twice in the last ten minutes. 

A Great 2-0  win.

Two coaches booked for Saturdays trip to Highworth Town.

Highworth Town 4 Exmouth Town 2 

So not the result we wanted here, but a great run. 

Highworth were better team in the first half taking a lead after 4 min and getting the second after 25mins. Town were off the pace in the first half but had a couple of chances.

The second half was a different game ,Town on the front foot getting forward down the slope.

Highworth had a player sent off and Jordan Harris pulled a goal back . Town at this point were all over Highworth plenty of shots, headers, saves and then Dave Rowe crashed a shot against the bar . It just wasnt to be . Town were then hit on the break twice going 4-1 down. Then minutes from the end Town lost Harris sent off for a challenge. (Gutted 3 match ban) Then Aarron Denny smashed in a fantastic long range effort to pull it back to 4-2 on Full Time.

It was a great day apart from the result . We ran two coaches and had approx 80 supporters in a crowd of 191 .

Next up Cadbury Heath away in the Vase.

Cadbury Heath 1 Exmouth Town 5 ( FA Vase)

So our 4th Saturday away day on the trot.

Town were out of the traps quickly dominating this game. 

Towns Karl Rickard hit two first half pens to give Town a 2-0 lead at ht.

Again after the break. Town were on the front foot with Ace High getting on the end of a knock down from Rickard to make it 3-0.

Cadbury Heath pulled a goal back from a shot from the edge of the box.

Town immediately went 4-1 up after a great run and finish from Ben Steer.

Ace High finished things off late on making it 5-1.

A Good day and trip. Found a great pub just around the corner from the ground, the King William, as the clubhouse / lock up wasnt open when we got there at 1.30.

Stayed at the Clubhouse / Lock up until 6PM after the game. Nice people running the club.

Att 83 inc approx 25 town

Exmouth Town 2 Cadbury Heath 0

Not a great game, Town had plenty of chances but took til the 44th Minute when Centre Half Dave Rowe beat the keeper after been put in. 

The second half was a wet and horrible half, Cadbury Heath raised there game ,but Town put the game to bed 15 min from the end with a neat finish from Jordan Harris.

Cadbury Heath had just had a three match unbeaten run ,they also looked a changed team from the one we played a few weeks ago away winning 5-1 up there in the Vase.

Att 141 (City at home always affects the gate) around 10 visiting supporters

Wellington 0 Exmouth Town 2

A Sunday game as a part of the groundhopper day. Town were slow off the mark with Wellington looking better than there League position would suggest .

A fantastic ball from Denny put Jordan Harris through with a defender and the keeper to beat ,which he duly did in the 20th min.

Late in the half another great ball from Ace High and a  neat finish from Denny gave town a two goal lead at HT. 

The second half was very similar to the first with Town having most of the play until  Wellington were reduced to 10 men on about 60 min.

This actually spurred Wellington on and it was a much closer game. 

Town hit the post and bar and Chris Wright made a couple of decent saves.

A Decent 315 crowd for a Sunday (inc approx 60 Town)

Next up Portland at home in the Vase UTT

Exmouth Town 2 Portland United 0

Southern Road passed a pitch inspection at 9.00am . The ground  was WET but playable.

Needless to say it  was going to be heavy. Town should have taken the lead after 2 mins when Denny hit a one on one at the keeper.

After 8 minutes Callum Shipton was handily placed to pass the ball into the net from close range. 

Town doubled there lead 20 mins later when Karl Rickard had a deflected shot rifle past the keeper. 

Portland had a player sin binned  for 10  at this point

HT 2-0  

Portland were better in the second half with Town defending for long periods catching Portland on the break a few times but not putting them to bed. 

In defense Kieron Wildig made one fantasic block on the line and Chrissy Wright made a couple of decent saves.

FT Town 2-0 att 211 with around 40 from Portland.

A Decent crowd for a wet day and City at home.UTT

Next up the draw Monday and Street at home Wednesday evening 7.30

Exmouth Town 5 Street 0

A really entertaining game which ended up with A one sided final score.

Street were a decent young team, who played some great football. They were unfortunate to lose two lads carried off injured in the first half.

Street started the game strong but Town took the lead after a fantastic finish from Callam Shipton. Karl Rickard added a second fifteen minutes later.

Jordan Harris then put Town 3 up ten minutes before half time .

Street came out strong in the second half and had plenty of the ball without threatening Chris Wrights goal.

Jordan Harris and Aarron Denny both added the scoresheet with a couple of great Team goals. 

Town could have scored two or three more ,but for the Street keeper who made a string of saves.

This could have been 8 or 9. A Funny game ,this Street team were not that bad honest.

Att 161 with about 15 from Street.

Next up Keynsham away Saturday .

Didnt make Keynsham away on Saturday , but not a great result for Town.

I hear it was not the best performance on the artificial Pitch .The reports suggest Town struggled with the pitch and weren`t helped too much by the Ref.

But hey,it happens some times .normally when you lose.

A big week coming up, Tavvy at home Wednesday. We need to bounce back. 

(Also might be off to watch Buckland v Parkway on Tuesday.)

Exmouth Town 4  Tavistock 2

This was a horrible evening ,players and supporters had problems getting to Exmouth for the 7.30pm kick off due to an accident on the A38 and it started to rain around 4pm and carried on all night! That said it was a great game,Town were dominant for most of the first half but went behind in the 45th Minute when a great hard and low cross was turned in by a Town defender for an OG.

HT 0-1

The second half started with a bang when Ace High got on the end of a great cross to equal the scores.

Tavistock then bounced back into the lead when awarded a Penalty which was easily converted.

To be honest at this point I thought Tavistock would raise there game but no, Town absolutely  brushed Tavvy aside with 3 goals in 10  minutes, Callam Shipton was given the freedom of Southern Road when he headed in from 6 yard and then Ace High scored his second. Jordan Harris hit the fourth from a direct free kick from 25 yards .

A Great result for Town ,not sure Tavvys boss will be happy with their performance.

A Decent 174 at the game with about 25 from Tavvy (Fair play to them with the hassle on the roads.)

Next up the second half of Brislington at home after City v Argyle  at Lunch time on Saturday.

Tavistock 6 Exmouth Town 1 FA VASE

Well a bad evening for Town ,which Tavvy absolutely got revenge for the poor performance at Southern Road a couple of weeks ago.

Town had a bad start when Keeper Chris Wright was substituted after 5 mins injured ,but fortunately Town had a keeper on the bench.

Town took the lead after  8 mins with a tap in for Ace High .That was the end of the good news for town.

Tavvy banged in 3 goals before half time and then another 3 in the second half. No excuses from Town we were just second best all night.

The pitch was fine . The only slight niggle was I couldnt understand why Tavvy didn't announce the game was on through Social media ?

I`m sure there would have been a few more there to watch, no idea what the attendance was ,but there were around 30  from Town .

Ahh what do I know. UTT

Don't know if somebody different has taken on the Tavistock social media side this season, but it seems to have gone downhill.  

Guess we are spoilt at Plymouth Parkway with the quality of club website, Whats App, Twitter,Facebook, YouTube and Instagram output.

Exmouth Town V Parkway

Off tonight, Did a pitch inspection at 1.30pm the pitch was fine , due to the weather Forecast it was prudent to check again at 4.30.

The  heavens opened at around 4pm and the pitch which was already wet, now with surface water and the forecast was bad for the next 3 hours.  hence gutted, we had to call it off.

Had more games off due to the weather this season than the whole of last season.No idea when this Les Phillips game will be played. UTT
