ALL THE SENIOR CUP AND LEAGUE ACTION
As always mixed fortunes for our teams in the opening round of the Devon Senior cup, but plenty of goals to provide entertainment.

Hemyock won a thriller at Elmore 4-3, and Culm United came away from Princetown as they edged the South Devon side 3-2.
Seaton Town were elated to get through 5-4 on penalties at Barum United in North Devon after a 1-1 draw, and Bravehearts also won on penalties 5-3 at home to Clyst Valley after the pair shared four goals..
The University although not yet back at college managed to rustle up a team to get their tie resolved at Winkleigh who many thought would make it through.
Elsewhere Feniton were beaten 7-4 at home by DC Auto repairs from Plynmouth, and Chagford lost their big derby to Stoke Gabriel 6-1,
Close defeat for Tipton St John at Lugger Devonport by 3-2, and even closer at Woolsery in North Devon where Broadclyst were beaten 6-5 on pens after the teams ended 3-3.
Sadly no news yet of how Exeter United fared against Plympton, but news now in that Teignmouth who were 1-0 winners at home to Holsworthy.

East Budleigh were 2-0 winners at Colyton to go top of Division Four on goal difference, and were joined by Sidmouth Town who were too strong for visiting Alphington winning 6-0.
Cheriton Fitzpaine and Budleigh Salterton settled for a 1-1 draw at White Cross, and Dawlish United and Uplyme also drew 0-0 but this result is pending and may not stand.
