Sidbury United boss Jamie Schofield is having to shuffle his pack for tomorrows Devon Premier Cup tie at home to Bovey Tracey (3pm).

Schofield is missing the services of the holidaying Charlie Cox together with the unavailable Richard Bacon and Spencer Lane.

However, the United chief is able to give a debut to Jamie Bayliss. Schofield explained the new man’s signing saying: “Jamie (Bayliss) was at Exeter University and works with one of our players so, when he expressed a desire to come and join us it was music to my ears. He’ll give us real strength in the attacking department.”

Schofield is also hoping to complete the signing of Ben Clay within the next week. Clay is currently on the books at Exmouth Town and the United boss is delighted to be closing in on the talented defender of whom he says: “Ben’s presence in our group will be significant. Of that I have no doubt. He’s talented, experienced and fit and will become a big player for us.”

The game with Bovey Tracey is one that could be a banana skin for the Byes Lane side. The South Devon outfit are yet to win a game this term whilst United are unbeaten.
