Ottery St Mary are celebrating their first win of the Scott Richards Devon League South & East division, beating Plymouth Argyle FITC 2-0 at Washbrook Meadow.

Jordan Wilkinson and Sam Pyne, the latter a product of the Ottery Under-18 team, were the Ottery goal scorers.

In the North & East Division, Budleigh Salterton ended a Devon League North & East early season run of five straight defeats with their second success of the term, winning 5-2 at a Clyst Rovers side that is one of three teams in the division yet to register a point.

Clyst Valley have now played six games and lost the lot while Bovey Tracey Reserves and Witheridge have both lost all six of their early season outings.

Budleigh's win lifts them to 10th in the table - make sure of a copy of the Exmouth Journal (out next on Wednesday, September 11) for a match report and post match comment.
