Cleeve lose heavily to an Exmouth Town side who were without a league win before today

Ross Langworthy’s cross deflected away from Ethan Dunbar at the back post before Dunbar’s speculative effort dropped just over the bar

Langworthy won a freekick after good battling by Toby Holland with the latter curling his freekick effort just past the post

Exmouth then had a chance as Clayton couldn’t cleanly collect the ball but the Cleeve ‘keeper recovered in time to collect the follow up shot

Jay Malshanskyj the broke down the left for the hosts doing well to cut inside but Andrew Sowden-Bird in the visitors’ goal was equal to the shot

Clayton then had to produce a superb fingertip save from a ball pumped into the box that ended up heading for the top corner.

On the half hour mark the visitors took the lead, perhaps slightly against the run of play, when Michael Landricombe jumped highest to head home a cross from the right.

Exmouth doubled their lead when they won a penalty when Clayton was second to the ball and Benjamin Steer stepped up to convert into the bottom corner.

The lead was extended shortly after half time when as Exmouth played around the Cleeve box everyone seemed to stop and Ethan Slater managed to trickle the ball in before Ace High made it four minutes later.

With twenty minutes to go Holland hit a curled freekick into the top corner but that was to only prove a consolation as Exmouth recorded their first league win of the season
