🎄Christmas countdown: Day 24

Watkins' double turns Devon Red in 2016

24 December 2018

Ollie Watkins’ brace in the final ten minutes secured Exeter City a league double over Plymouth Argyle at St James Park.

Whilst his first was slightly fortunate, there was no doubting the second...

With seconds of the game remaining the youngster drove forward, beating three Argyle players in the process, before smashing into the top-corner from long-range. An academy graduate scoring a last-gasp winner against his side’s arch-rivals - it was Roy of the Rovers stuff for a player whose career is only going in one direction. It was truly one of the greatest goals in Devon derby history.
