Sidmouth Town Reserves 3, Pinhoe 0 The Vikings were good value for a clean sheet victory over the visitors.
Being able to pick from virtually a full squad was the real bonus and from the kick off they looked totally dominant and it quickly became clear that the only doubt of the day was what the winning margin would be!
There were no goals in the first half, a fact that lowed much to the excellence of the Pins keeper.
The Vikings flew out of the blocks in the second half scoring with their very first attack with Tim Lister netting.
Paris Pinney was summoned from the bench and his pace immediately began to be influential.

Town boss Nick Ogden said: “This was probably our most controlled performance of the season. It was all about staying calm and being patient against a doggedly defending opposition team. In an all-round excellent team shift the Man of the Match must go to Constantin (Michael ) Rusu who just pipped his team mates for the honour.”
