Tipton St John took their season’s goal tally past the half-century as they scored with unanswered goals to win their Macron League Division Three midweek game at Budleigh Salterton.

The win also extends the current unbeaten run for Tipton to six games.

In what was only Tipton’s 17th game of the season - they still have a dozzen league games to play and are still involved in a cup competition - they now have scored 53 goals in those games and are averaging three goals a game!

The side is very much in the hunt for divisional honours, but what might yet go against them is a hectic end-of-season schedule.

Tipton host Clyst Valley on Saturday and that will be the first game in a 14-day spell when the side will be playing eight times!

Next midweek, Tipton play on Monday (at home to Priory) and then have a Wednesday home game against Countess Wear Dynamos before next Saturday’s game away at Royal Oak who play on the new 3G pitch at Exwick in Exeter.

Tipton head into tomorrow’s (April 14) meeting with Clyst Valley sitting fifth, 14 points behind leaders University, who have played three games more.

With Royal Oak, who shared six goals with Countess Wear Dynamos in a Wednesday night meeting, currently sitting in fourth position, if Tipton can win their next three that game at Royal Oak is then a real ‘six pointer’!
