Josh Leach, 11, was presented the Exeter Friendly League Manager's Player of the Year for Hemyock for the third year running last Friday.

The sport star, who plays for the under 11s first won the award in 2003.

Josh, who plays as central defender and has scored four goals for the club this season, said: "I was surprised that I won the trophy again, but it's great because there are other good players on the team."

The award was presented at St James Park, Exeter, by John Penkethman, chairman of the Exeter Friendly League.

The Youth Football Club has recently started training on the new football pitch at Longmead, Hemyock.

An all-weather pitch and changing rooms are due to be built on the site as part of the on-going redevelopments.
