Spreyton hopes destroyed in extra time

Swans win Devon Intermediate cup after grabbing late equaliser

Spreyton village football team were within minutes of lifting the A & S Devon Intermediate cup when opponents Combe Martin of the North Devon League, snatched a late equaliser and went on to capture the trophy with a 3-2 ending. There was little to choose between the two sides in regular time but having taken the lead Spreyton looked on the brink of history when Combe pounced, and with their tails up went 3-1 ahead. Spreyton did get a goal back but it came too late to save the day.

Combe are a long established team and were beaten finalists in 1974 losing 3-1 to St Marks who sadly are no longer with us.
