Ottery St Mary manager Dave Fairweather had plenty of reasons to be cheerful after watching the Otters net a second successive clean sheet victory as they won their Bill Slee last 16 cup tie with North Tawton 6-0.

Given that the side had not played since a December 16 1-0 win over Countess Wear Dynamo’s it was an impressive result for the Otters.

It also proved to be a wonderful first game back after a lengthy injury lay-off for Jordan Wilkinson.

The striker, who suffered a fractured ankle in pre-season, made a much anticipated return to action and scored a hat-trick.

Dan Jewell was another to find the net – he scored a double and the sixth goal came off an unfortunate North Tawton defenders boot!
