Cameron Brown put some colour back in his manager’s cheek with a well-taken hat-trick away to local rivals Lympstone, as the Budleigh Salterton Reserves ended a miserable run of defeats with a 5-0 success at Lympstone in a Macron Division Three meeting, writes SpursTom.

It’s a welcome victory for the Robins’ second string, who last won a game at the end of August; coincidently, it was also against Lympstone.

Several changes were made to the Robins team with debuts handed to Ben Haycock, Leigh Jones and Andrew Empson while James Gill made a welcome return to strengthen the defence.

One blow was the regular glovesman Nick Eveleigh having to drop out and so 16-year-old Guy Laverock stepped into the position, one in which he performed admirably.

A good run and cross by Adam Wilkinson led to Cameron Brown opening the scoring on 18 minutes.

Ben Haycock marked his debut with the second just after the half hour mark and Brown bagged a second to leave Budleigh 3-0 up at half-time.

Immediately after the interval started, worse was to follow for Lympstone, as with only seconds gone, Budleigh broke-up an attack, fed Brown, and he strode forward before rifling the ball home to make it 4-0.

Shortly after completing his treble, Brown was replaced by Sam Balbi. To their credit, the home side kept battling away, but there was a determined look in the visitors’ play as they thwarted the opposition’s attack.

When called upon, defenders Ghanmi, sub Empson, Everest, Gill, plus wing backs Snook (sub Jones) and Wilkinson, were always on hand to ensure any Lympets raids were held in check.

The midfield of Gibbings, Pannell, Shipton and Haycock, also did a sturdy job. The fifth and final goal was scored by teenage hit-man Wilkinson. Young Laverock, as stand-in glovesman, fully deserved his clean sheet.
