Otterton 3, Bickleigh 0

Otterton moved smoothly into the last 16 of the area section of the Devon Intermediate Cup with a solid all-round performance.

The Otters started well and had chances to open the scoring when strikers Kev Pitt and Ryan Mitchell had chances saved.

At the other end the Mid Devon side struck the frame of the goal before the Otters took the lead with a late first-half strike.

Nick Tweedie found Simon Tuley with a precise cross and the master-marksman headed home.

After the break the Otters dominated and excellent approach play from Kevin Pitt set up Ryan Mitchell to double the lead.

With 10 minutes remaining Johnny Dack set off on a mazy run that ended with him crossing to Pitt to complete the scoring.

Team: Adam Williams, Nick Tweedie, Si Trim, Luke Iddon, Ben Yeomans. Lee Mitchell, Simon Tuley, Jon Dack, Charlie Copleston, Ryan Mitchell, Kevin Pitt . Subs: Adam Rolls, Liam Tweedie, Danny Marish.

Tomorrow (Saturday) Otterton entertain St Martins in a Football Express Cup 2nd round tie.
