Sidbury United were 4-0 winners over Beer at Byes Lane, a fourth successive clean sheet victory.

Goals from Dan Churchill, Dave Greenm, Danny Green and a first United score for Dan McCann saw United to a season’s double over the Fishermen.

United boss Jeremy Schofield was delighted with his teams performance against Beer.

He said: “We felt we owed them one after the meeting at their place this season when we got some stick from the home support. Comments like, not a good side and lucky really grated with us and we wanted to do a number on them. So this win was most satisfying!”

Schofield continued: “I was thrilled to bits for Dan (McCann). To think that two years ago he was a regular in Division Eight of the Fresha League and here he is now making big contributions to the cause. For him to net his first Sidbury goal at this level, and in such a big game, was very special.”

Much of that is down to the collective efforts of the defenders; Skipper Sam Seldon, Richard Bacon, Dan McCann and Ben Farringdon have all, individually and collectively been terrific in the current run of shut-outs.

Chard Town Reserves were the last team to net against United in a 4-1 Byes Lane defeat five days before Christmas.

On Saturday United travel to Exeter to face a University side that shared ten goals with one of Sidbury’s rivals for a top three finish, Feniton.

Schofield says of the next game: “It’ll be tough, but then they all are at this level. We beat them 3-2 earlier in the season and student teams always have plenty of energy.”

United have a clean bill of health for the game which is being played at Topsham with a 2.15pm kick-off.
