A jubilant Tipton St John made it into the quarter finals of the Devon Senior Cup after winning a penalty shoot out at Shebbear United of the North Devon League 5-4. The two rivals had ended the game at 4-4, but Tipton held their nerve from the spot. Tipton marksmen in normal time were Ryan Flack, Steve Flack, a Kev Sexton penalty and Josh Wright.
