Youth players get revenge with 3-1 win over Grecians
AVENGING A 1-0 defeat there three weeks ago, Torquay United's youth team beat Exeter City 3-1 in the FL Alliance Group Cup at City's Cat & Fiddle Training Ground.
Goals by Danny Sullivan, Tom Ellacott and Jamie Alexandrou saw the young Gulls home.
United's Head of Youth Geoff Harrop acknowledged the irony when he said: "After playing so well in other games and losing, we won this time after not playing as well as we have done before.
"But we defended strongly under pressure in the second half and our finishing was very good.

"Because we've been in the lead and lost three times, there was bound to be a worry at 2-1.
"But this time we actually went on and got the third goal, which I think quite shocked a few of our lads.
"But we're really pleased for them, because it's a reward for keeping believing in what we're trying to do."
Harrop mentioned a fine display by first-year trainee striker Monty Berrow from Totnes.
He added: "Our new goalkeeper, Conor Thompson, had a real presence, even though he didn't have a huge amount to do.
"Jake Hutchings, Rob Nardiello, Jack May and Danny Sullivan all did well, so we had a strong spine right down the middle of the side."
This Saturday United continue their Group Cup campaign away to Yeovil Town, whom they've already beaten once this season.
