Exmouth Town maintained their 100% home record with a simply sensational first-half performance last Saturday when they overcame Evesham United 4-1.  

The opening fifteen minutes saw both sides enjoy their share of possession with no indication of what was to follow, Town scoring three goals in a pulsating four-minute spell.  

Ace High threaded a pass through the heart of the Evesham defence, where Aarron Denny took full advantage of a sublime dummy by Levi Landricombe to fire home. Two minutes later and an intended back pass soared over the head of his own ‘keeper to double Town’s lead.  

The cheers were still ringing out from the majority of a crowd of 380 when Jordan Harris collected the ball just in the opposition half, a quick glance to see the ‘keeper on the edge of his box and delivered an exquisite lob for the third. 

To their credit, Evesham stuck to playing controlled football and were given a lifeline when they were awarded a penalty, duly converted on 25 minutes. Their thoughts of a comeback were dealt a serious blow five minutes later when a defender was shown a straight red card for a dangerous tackle and the game was virtually over when Landricombe added Town’s fourth on the stroke of half-time.

Not surprisingly, the second half was a much tamer affair. Evesham kept plugging away and Dan Cullen headed one goal-bound effort off the line and they also clipped the top of the crossbar.  

Whilst Town were largely content to preserve their lead, they always looked dangerous and the visiting glovesman had to make several decent saves to prevent further goals.
