Sidmouth Town bagged their first win in almost a month, confidently defeating Totnes and Dartington 3-1 at Manstone Lane.

Vikings boss Josh Stunell had suggested before the game that his young side had shown enough in the previous outing’s narrow defeat to Teignmouth Town that a win was close.

Town fell behind to an early goal when a corner was turned home by the visitors – the home defence guilty of leaving the ball for each other with no one taking charge of the situation.

However, the response was good and Town were quickly level with a goal from skipper Ryan Davis.

Teenage striker Jamie Orchard struck five minutes before the interval – that’s two in two games for the Devon Under-18 hit man - and Town led 2-1 at half-time.

The points were secured when another teenager – the talented Ollie Binnion - scored his first ever goal for the club.

A delighted Josh Stunell said: “The youngsters really were terrific. To think we had 16-year-old Tyler Wellman orchestrating things in midfield and another youngster, Ollie Binnion, netting his first senior goal.”

Stunell added: “The win had been coming. All my team needs is inner belief. We have the nucleus of a team that can challenge next season.

“What we need to do now is finish the season strongly and then, with a couple of new faces for next season we’ll be ready to move to a higher level of performance.”
