Budleigh Salterton were very unfortunate to be knocked out of the Throgmorton Cup when they were beaten by the odd goal in nine in an incident-packed match at Cullompton Rangers.

The Robins, playing against a side who play one level above them (The Mid Devon side play in the South West Peninsula League, Premier Division), led 3-2 deep into added time at the end of the 90 minutes when the home side scrambled an equaliser to make it 3-3.

Making their lead all the more remarkable was that they played from the 75th minute a man short following the straight red card picked up by player-boss Danny Williams.

Williams was most unfortunate to be red carded as even the most staunch of the home supporters deemed his reckless challenge to be worthy of no more than a yellow card. However, he probably suffered as his card came at the end of a five minute spell that had seen two of this players cautioned for similar over-zealous challenges as the Budleigh player allowed their frustrations at what they saw as some unjust decisions going against them, to boil over.

Had Williams stayed on the pitch there is little doubt that his side would have been the ones going into the next round. As it was, tired legs were evident in the 30 minutes of extra time that saw Cully score three times to the two that the Robins managed.

The score line was harsh on Budleigh who had the measure of their Premier Division hosts. Carl Everest was superb in the Robins back line whilst player-boss Williams and jack Greenslade carried a regular threat up top.

Elsewhere there was a splendid 2-1 win for Exmouth Town in the same competition. Richard Pears’ men maintain their unbeaten start to the season in league and cup with a 2-1 triumph at University.

Make sure of your copy of the Exmouth Journal out next on Thursday, September 27 in which there will be full match reports and post match opinion from both the Budleigh and Town matches.
