We will work within the Government and FA guidelines and will ensure safety is always put first. The club continues to believe that the children’s enjoyment comes first.
Many lessons can be learned about commitment and togetherness in light of this season and we look forward to the future.
This is what our Managers say:
"The U16s experienced a very mixed season. In the early weeks, some player departures left us with a numerically challenged squad. That loyal band, however, rallied together to produce some fantastic displays. Despite everything, a cup run also took the team to the semi-final for the second year running and the season ultimately ended up being one of great achievement. The attitude, spirit and determination of those that saw the season out was faultless. It is very gratifying that nearly all have expressed the desire to continue at U18s level – a first for the club."
"The U15s had a tough season in division 1 in which points were hard to come by, however, the team showed a fantastic spirit and put in some excellent performances against the top sides. The high morale and positive attitude were ever-present at training where the team always worked hard and enjoyed their football. The families are supportive and have created a positive and friendly atmosphere around the team."
"Exmouth United U14s have taken part in division two of the Exeter & District Youth League and progressed to the semi-final of the cup before the season was cut short due to COVID-19 lock-down. The team has been well supported by the parents who are proactive and very complementary to the players and coaches."
"The U13s boys have shown a new maturity in training sessions and we have benefited from the club paying for extra weekend training sessions on astroturf when matches have been rained off."
"I am so proud of the way our U12s have performed and the way they have dealt with the disappointment of games being called off. During lockdown we have kept in touch by having zoom meetings and holding a weekly quiz. We have also been setting football challenges, which they have loved. We are very much looking forward to getting the squad back together for our first year at 11 a-side."
"Despite the obvious frustrations this has also been a season of tremendous growth for the U11s. We started the season learning to get to grips with the larger 9 a side pitch (along with the introduction of the offside rule) and as our fitness improved following the summer break, our season simply grew from strength to strength."
"The U10s want to take this opportunity to celebrate what was an amazing season and to thank the players for all their effort, hard work and enjoyment they gave to all. The quality of the football and the spirit in which we play has earned us praise from parents and coaches of pretty much every team we have met. Everyone who has been a part of the squad this season should be very proud of their efforts and achievements and be congratulated on what was a great season."
The U9s made a lot of progress in their gameplay this year despite the short season and bad weather. The players benefitted from the move to Exmouth Cricket club where the surface encouraged them to play a passing game out from the back. Their team spirit, enthusiasm and hard work have been amazing and it has been a pleasure to be their coach for a second year."
"The effort and desire to learn shown by the U8s, demonstrates what a great future they have together. The progress this season has been awesome to see, from big early season defeats to their first league goal, first friendly win and then achieving a couple of draws in the league. If they continue to show the same level of commitment and enthusiasm as they have done this season, I have no doubt they will grow as a team and achieve great things together in the future."
"The U7s team formed in October 2019 with new team members joining throughout the season. Despite not knowing each other before they have become friends and always show a good team spirit. As a coach, it’s been enjoyable watching the progress made - and them playing with a smile win, lose or draw."
