KENTS, KIRTON & VIKINGS ALL ON THE VICTORY TRAIL INTO ROUND 2 OF PREMIER CUP
Round 2 here they come
The Devon County cups dominated the scene as football returned following last weeks decision to postpone all matches out of respect for Her Majesty the Queen.
The cup holders Beer Albion now moved on to the Devon League, defended their crown against visitors Bere Alston with a 4-0 win at home showing their determination to do it again, but within our ranks it was Kentisbeare who stole the show with their 8-0 victory against Plymouth Marjons, the college side no answer to a powerful Kents performance.
Crediton United frustrated by not knowing whether they were due to host or travel to Hartland & Clovelly were able to get their tie sorted at Lords meadow and saw off their North Devon rivals 7-0.
Sidmouth Town were pleased with their 3-2 victory against Newton Abbot 66, while Clyst Valley won a thriller at Colyton 4-3 on penalties after the pair got to 3-3 at fulltime. Keeper Ben Wilkie was the star for Valley with two great stops.
Just two Premier matches were scheduled for the weekend, but only one took place as Dawlish United were unable to make the trip to Lyme Regis and will probably forfeit the points. The one game that did happen was at Alphington where they clocked up their third victory 5-0 against Ottery St Mary, and now join Crediton as joint leaders both with three wins under their belts.
