Sidmouth Town suffer late blow and exit cup
- Credit: Archant
Sidmouth Town went out of the Walter C Parsons Funeral Directors Cup – beaten by an 87th minute goal from Stoke Gabriel.
However, Ottery St Mary enjoyed their day as they become only the third side to win at Macron League outfit Royal Oak, beating the Exeter side by the odd goal in seven on their own turf too!
It was only a second win of the Macron League Division Three campaign for Dave Fairweather’s men, but it is three precious points banked from a visit to a home ground where the hosts seldom drop points
Sidmouth Town thirds lost 3-2 at Sidbury in a Devon Intermediate Cup tie against Central, but there was a fine 4-1 win for the Town fourths in their Macron league Division Eight game in Exeter at Central. That win sees the Vikings’ fourth string up to fourth in the table.
There was also a superb 4-1 Macron Division Three win for Otterton at Countess Wear, but Tipton St John tasted defeat fore the first time this term when beaten 3-1 at home by all-conquering Crediton United Reserves.
