Sidmouth Town bagged a third successive win of the South West Peninsula League, Eastern Division season with a 2-1 Good Friday success at Budleigh Salterton.
It was a Cameron Vere double that saw the Vikings to the win – and it’s the first time this season that Town have claimed three straight victories.
Town boss Josh Stunell said: “To be honest we were not at anything like our best. In fact there’s a case for Budleigh to feel; they ought to have got a point from it. Dec (goalkeeper Dec Lines) was our star player – there’s no doubting that.”
The Town chief continued: “Having said we were not that special, the fact we got the points speaks volumes for the way the team are performing as a unit. To be fair, we have not had our fair share of luck this season and many a time I have seen the lads come of the pitch and felt we deserved more than we had got so perhaps lady luck was with us for this game. “What I would say is that for me, commitment and the clear desire to want to work hard for one another and the team as a whole, got us over the line.”
Connor Swingler had a fine match and it was from a cross of his that Vere netted what proved to be the only goal of the first half.

A slip at the back by the otherwise excellent Anthony Griffiths let Budleigh net an equaliser early in the second half.
However, Town are in a confident mood at the moment and they got back into the contest and took all three points when a Connor Swingler shot was half saved, but still rolling towards the net when Vere did what all good hit-men do – finished it off by smashing the ball home!
