Sidmouth Town thirds followed up a Saturday 3-0 Macron League success at Seaton Town by bagging a Golesworthy Cup last four berth on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over Division Eight table-toppers Bravehearts.

The victory was sweet revenge for Town who had been knocked out of the Geary Cup by the same Cullompton-based opponents earlier in the season.

In a scrappy and at times bad-tempered game, the Vikings were ultimately good value for their win.

Goals from Joe Miller and Ollie Turton plus a stunning save from Jack Burgess being the particular highlights.

Next up for the third team is a special match this coming Friday (April 14) when the team play a tribute game in honour of their late team mate, Sam Marriott.

The opposition are going to be the side that Sam played in when they represented Sidmouth Town as a youth team up through the age ranges.

The match is being played on Good Friday at Manstone Lane.
