Ottery St Mary claimed a 16th win in 18 Fresha League Division Six starts with a 4-2 over Railway Club.

The win leaves the Otters 13 points clear at the top of the table and they are now just 18 points shy of being crowned divisional champions.

Jordan Rogers was the star of the show, the youngster bagged a brace in a fine all-round individual shift.

Leading scorer Adam Harris notched another and Connor Swingler was also on target.

The two goal winning margin might well have been much larger, but for the fact that the Railway Club goal led a charmed life!

Three times the Otters saw shots beat the visiting gloves man only for the frame of the goal top keep the ball out of the end and there were countless goal line clearances during a second half power-show that saw the Otters lay siege to the Railway goal!

One feature of the contest was the growing number of followers that the high-flying Otters are attracting. A large number of whom journeyed to Exeter to support their team on a bitingly cold afternoon.
