Fluxton proved to have too much for visiting Feniton Reserves who they put to the sword to the tune of a 6-0 score line at Tipton Playing Field, writes Alex Paget.

Fluxton are famously rudderless, but it was quite unprecedented to see a touchline entirely bereft of trench coats and tracksuits at Tipton Playing Field. It seems Feniton have abandoned their managerial dictatorship in favour of a Fluxton-esque Socialist experiment. Not a gesticulation to be seen, no claret scarf tousled by the breeze, no mastication of minty gum.

But Fluxton’s is a well-oiled regime. “There’s no one you don’t want to pass to,” said Matt Clothier-Smith over a plate of post-match shepherd’s pie at Ottery’s Volunteer Inn. In place of lethargic Doctor Jeckyll, a marauding Mr Christopher Nigel Sercombe opened the scoring on 15 minutes, bundling in an Olly Paget layback in a tightly-packed box. Man of the Match Si Durrant then drew a foul on the edge of the box. He mudded himself down and rifled home the set-piece.

Ali Buchan had been full of bristling energy before his knee buckled on twenty-five minutes. Sadly, no manager also means no bucket-and-sponge man!

Many a wounded revolutionary has limped off to the desolate touchline before him, and he won’t be the last. Replacement Andi Davies headed home a Rob Hart corner and Fluxton trotted off at the break 3-0 to the good.

Fluxton attacked the River End with vim, striking metalwork for the second and third time before Clothier-Smith rounded off yet another all-inclusive passing move.

Ollie Paget contrived to miss a golden chance for a fifth, but Hart pounced to snaffle the rebound. The excellent Davies made it a half-dozen in this Fresha League Division Five top six clash, before the men dismantled the goals and put away the flags.
