Beer Albion progressed to the next round of the East Devon Senior Cup with a narrow 3-2 home victory against a spirited Clyst Valley side, writes Roger Hoare.
The Fishermen started brightly with Jacobe Clode heading Beer in front after just two minutes. Further goals failed to come in the first half, with Long and Wakely going close. The Valley seemed to benefit more from the halftime break and began to dominate the proceedings, the Furzebrake faithful feared the worse and after sustained pressure the Valley equalised. Time for a change and substitute Pedro Fontes was summoned, and, within 10 minutes he had given Beer the lead.
With time running out the Valley left winger cut inside his full-back and his thunderbolt gave Beer glovesman, Jones no chance to force the tie into extra-time.
Beer player-manager Walker moved up front to partner the lively Seth Wakely and it was these two who combined well to create the chance for Wakely to net his opening goal for the Albion and seal a terrific victory.
The Man of the Match award went to the impressive Seth Wakely.
