Veale's youngsters earn spurs
JON Veale declared himself delighted with his side's much-improved performance, despite watching them go down to a comprehensive defeat against Newton Abbot Spurs.
Kirton took the lead 25 minutes in following a superb free-kick from Phil Hardee, only for them to surrender the advatnage a minute later as Tom Sercombe levelled.
Adam Dyson put Spurs ahead before Adam Dyson made it 3-1, and Sercombe bagged a second five minutes from time to round things off.
But, with three 16-year-olds in the starting line-up and debuts from new signings John Elladon and James Satchell, Veale stated that he was pleased with the improvements in his Kirton side.

"It was very, very good. It was not quite the scoreline we wanted but everyone was asking us at the end of the match how we are so far down in the table," said Veale, whose side host bottom club Sidmouth Town on Saturday.
"It was probably the best football we have played since the Teignmouth game, which we won. Every player worked very hard and gave their all for 90 minutes.
"I think 4-1 was a slightly unfair result and I think that 2-1 would have been far more realistic, but we're still happy with things.
"I played three 16-year-olds on the day and they were all superb too. They manned up for 90 minutes and did what was expected of them, so I was very happy with that."
