The youngsters, coached by Norwich City legends Rob Newman and Darren Eadie, won 4-0 at South Molton Community College in the semi-finals of the ESFA Playstation Small Schools’ Trophy.

Striker Tyreece Simpson gave Langley the best possible start, firing a well-taken shot in off the post after five minutes.

The visitors made it 2-0 some 20 minutes later through Spencer Keller, ending a twisting run with a calm finish.

South Molton ended the half well, and were beginning to threaten a lot more when a sucker-punch from Keller came, the forward getting his second when rounding off a rapid counter-attack.
