First time finalists Upottery win Golesworthy Final at Ottery

Ninch score first but overtaken.

Upottery Res captured the Golesworthy cup in their first ever final appearance coming from behind to win 2-1 against Bradninch Town. The Division 6 champions fell in arrears to their Div 7 opponents, but after equalising then scored the winner from a Gavin Richards free kick. It was disappointment for Bradninch who have been on a roll since they last lost a league match in September.

wednesday round up

Lyme Regis Res retained the Football Express cup when they defeated Elmore Res 5-3 on pens after drawing 1-1 at Budleighs Greenway Lane. Both regular time goals in a match of few chances came within minutes of each other in extra time, but Lyme held their nerve converting all five penalties to retain the cup which they won for the first time ironically at Elmore last season.

Alphington Res are through to the semi finals of the East Devon Senior cup thanks to a 2-0 win at Okehampton Argyle, and they will now face Beer Albion on monday for the right to meet Cronies in the final, although that will now be held over to the start of the new season.

Cronies beat landlords Topsham Town 3-1 to crown a magnificent first ever season as runners up, and for both teams that completed their domestic programme.

Referee Brian Holmes was the official at tonights Division 2 match between Bampton and Newton Poppleford which the ponies won 17-1. The Popples could only field 10 players, but Brian reported that once again their attitude and sportsmanship was incredible and despite the scoreline he was delighted to have refereed his last ever match in such circumstances.
