Sidmouth Town III bagged their first win since being formed at the start of the season courtesy of a 3-2 success over Colyton.

The early exchanges gave Town much cause for encouragement with Jamie Briggs prominent and it was he who sent a set piece into the area for Jack Scrivens to fire then into the lead. The goal was young Scrivens’s first in adult football.

Two minute after going ahead the Vikings were pegged back with Town gloves man Adam Bartlett, despite a great effort, being unable to keep the ball out.

The Sidmouth response was good and Arnie Onaki headed them back in front.

Colyton restored parity early in the second half, but Ian Peacock’s team were in no mood to lie back and once again they were quickly onto the front foot and it was no more than they deserved Onaki rifled home what proved to be the winner.

A delighted Peacock said: “It was a superb all-round team show. Choosing a man of the match was unusually difficult. Mike Stamp caught the eye with some determined defending and impeccable organisational skills. Arnie’s goals would ordinarily have swung it for him. But ultimately it was decided that the Man of the Match should go to Jamie Briggs whose sheer will and determination stood out throughout.”
