Budleigh Salterton were 3-0 winners when they journeyed to South Devon for their latest South West Peninsula League Eastern Division game to meet relegation-threatened Galmpton and Roselands, writes Alan Beer.

The Robins are ending the season in style and this latest clean sheet win was a fifth such success in their last nine outings.

What’s more, the team has now scored three or more goals in nine away matches – they have also managed the feat in eight home games – and have taken their season’s league goal tally to an impressive 85 in 30 outings!

The opening goal in this game came from the penalty spot when Aaron Denny, who was the player felled in the area, got up and drilled the ball home to give the Robins a 12th minute lead.

Just three minutes later the lead was doubled when George Pannell made good progress down the right before delivering a telling cross that leading scorer Jordan Harris turned into the net.

Galmpton, fighting for their lives at the foot of the table, did offer a threat, but they got little change out of a solid Budleigh back line in which young full back Luke Iddon was outstanding both on the ground and in the air.

Midway through the second half Denny combined well with teenage striker Adam Wilkinson to fashion a chance for Harris, but his shot flew past the glovesman only to be kept out by a goal line clearance!

The third goal duly arrived late on when Denny finished what he started, rounding the home glovesman to roll the ball into an empty net and seal a 3-0 win.

The Robins were in action last night, playing their final home game of the league campaign with a match against Torridgeside (see how they got on now at and they complete their league season on Saturday when they visit Ilfracombe Town where they will be seeking to complete the season with a fifth successive away win.
