East Budleigh took on the students of Exeter University twice in a week and both sides had to settle for a win apiece.

Budleigh produced an excellent all round performance on Bank Holiday Monday to win 2-0. Jack Greenslade opened their account before Joe Bowden produced a fine finish to seal the points.

Three days later, the Exeter side got their revenge winning by the odd goal in seven.

It was the away side that struck first, but Budleigh soon levelled; Adam Wilkinson and Greenslade combined before the latter was brought down in the area; Greenslade picked himself up to coolly convert the penalty.

Unfortunately for the Jays, the lead was regained before the break. Two minutes after the restart, Budleigh regained parity when a corner from Toby Hill eventually fell to Liam West who made no mistake to make it 2-2.

In a topsy-turvy encounter, the students took the lead for the third time, before a frantic finish saw Darren Everest force the ball home from a Greenslade corner, but Budleigh were left crushed when conceding a late fourth.

The Jays completed their campaign with a fine team display to beat Teignmouth 3-0.

After seeing out an early onslaught it was Budleigh that struck first; Liam West with a great finish from a Jack Greenslade corner.

Brad and Toby Hill then combined to set up brother Rian who produced an accomplished finish from 18 yards before Greenslade sealed the win.

East Budleigh Reserves completed a very satisfactory season with a share of the spoils at Uplyme and a fifth-place finish in Division 4.

Uplyme scored first with a penalty but Budleigh were level before the break; Nathan Penhallurick with a stylish finish from a good team move. In the second half, the Jays took the lead when Owen Corrick headed his side in front, only for Uplyme to level things up again.

In an exciting last quarter, Brendan Hood and Will Price both hit the crossbar for the visitors, as did the home side, who were also denied a winner late on, Budleigh ‘keeper Chris Wardle making an excellent reaction save to preserve a point.
