Exmouth Town manager Kevin Hill was delighted with his side’s fighting spirit, as they were beaten 3-2 by play-off bound Sholing at the Circle of Care Community Stadium.

The away side went into a three goal lead, as a horrible additional time period in the first half saw Town go a goal, and a man down, followed by two goals in the second half. 

Exmouth battled back via goals from Harry Walford and Aarron Denny, but it was not enough to earn a point against their opponents.

“I thought the lads were excellent, we created chances, played some nice football at times, and not only that, but they also gave me 110% which is all I ask for,” Kevin said. 

“It all comes from the (first) goal, they go short from the throw-in, we switch off, we aren’t ready and they’ve gone and scored from it.

“When the third went in, it was a bit of a sucker punch because they’d put so much effort in, ten men chasing, they worked hard, but they kept going and what a great goal for the first one, well worked and a great finish from Harry.

“The second one was as well, great ball over the top from Jordan (Harris), Dean (Billingsley) squared it back and Denny finished well.

“I’d have bit your hand off to stay in this league, we were up there at Christmas, but we weren’t ready, but the main aim was to stay in the league and we have done that.”
