Dunkeswell Rovers didn’t put a foot wrong during a weekend of league and cup action away from home.

Woodbury came first and were beaten 4-1.

Rovers got off to the best possible start when Brad Morris scored after just 43 seconds with a perfectly placed shot. The early goal let Dunks play with some freedom and soon Tom Cligg put them two up after the keeper couldn’t hold on to a shot and he was there to tuck it away.

Woodbury started the second half strongly and got what they deserved.

Dunks had to dig in for a while as Woodbury kept applying pressure.
