Sidmouth Town sunk in Devon Premier Cup tie by Navy Inn

Sidmouth Town suffered Throgmorton Devon Premier Cup disappointment when they went down by the odd goal in seven to free-scoring Plymouth and West Devon league top flight side Navy Inn.
In what was a classic ‘game of two very different halves’ it was Town who bossed the opening 45 minutes.
However, no doubt much to the dismay of Vikings’ boss Josh Stunell, he will have seen his side into the interval with just one goal to show for their superiority throughout the first half, that a 40th minute effort from Rob Knights powerful header.
The Plymouth-based side struck three times in the opening 25 minutes of the second half to take charge of the contest.
Ash Small hit back to make it 3-2, but a foul on a Navy Inn striker by James Clampin was punished by a penalty that was driven past Josh McLean to make it 4-2.

A Chris Ibbeson header set up a frenetic finish, but Town were left to pay for missing the chance to take a more significant – and perhaps match winning- half-time lead.
