Tipton St John were 3-1 winners when they travelled into Exeter to meet Priory in a Macron League Division Three game.

The first half of the match at saw two teams ‘test’ each other out, but neither seemed able to get a serious foothold in the contest.

That all changed early in the second half when the home side took the lead, but Tipton did not take long to hit back and they went on to win in a degree of comfort with their three goals coming from Ian Pring, Hayden Banfield and Dave Johnson.

Tipton play-coach Dale Strawbridge said: “We were punished for a slow start to the second half, but quickly responded to the set back of them scoring and went on to win well. Confidence is high and we are all looking forward to this Saturday’s game with Pinhoe.”

Tipton’s away form this season is flawless as they have won all three of their away matches with a brace of league wins and a Bill Slee Cup success also.
