Clyst Valley 2, Budleigh Salterton Reserves 4
The Robins Reserves started the new Fresha League top flight campaign with a good away win, writes Alan Beer.
What made the victory all the more impressive was that they trailed 2-0 at half–time!
They came back strongly in the second period, in particular when Sam Schlaefli and Brandon were introduced from the bench.
Perry’s individual effort and shot was deflected into the net by a home defender just past the hour mark. Then Schlaefli pulled it level with another individual effort on 75 minutes. The Robins continued to press the hosts, and, Man of the Match Aaron Denny started the move which put the Robins ahead. His long clearance found Perry who in turn set up Callum Shipton on 80 minutes.
Budleigh rounded off a well deserved victory when Perry again found his way around the home defence on the right hand side and cut back for Schlaefli to make it 4–2 just five minutes before the end.
Next up for the Robins is a trip to Heavitree Social United on Saturday (3pm).
Budleigh: Hockhold, Pidgeon, Riddell, Nield, Pearce, Wilson (Perry), Denny, Hill, Carr (Lever), Shipton, Higham (Schlaefli); Subs not used; Bartlett, Everest (D)
