Sidmouth Town Reserves booked a place in the final of the Grandisson Cup thanks to a last gasp goal from teenager Joe Miller.

Miller netted minutes after Kentisbeare had levelled things up at 1-1 in the 86th minute.

The Town second string, despite being able to field a strong starting eleven, struggled to get the basics right which gave plenty of encouragement to the Division Five opposition.

However, just before the break Will Jenkins netted to put the Vikings ahead.

In the second half Town finally began to play some passing football A strong reserve side struggled to get the basics right and in doing so made this a tough contest Will Jenkins scored on half time after Town finally played some football, but it was, for the most part, a frustrating game for Town followers and potential disappointment loomed when the Mid Devon side scored with just four minutes to play.
