BUDLEIGH RESERVESBUDLEIGH Salterton Reserves cruised into the Seaton Cup Final with a 4-0 win over Senior One outfit Broadclyst at Greenway Lane.The Robins have ended the season in superb form and still may yet escape the drop from the top flight of the Devon & Exeter League.On a perfect surface, the home side played some wonderful passing football and the Mid Devon side were on the back foot from the early stages of the contest.The Robins opened the scoring around the half hour mark when in-form striker Sam Schlaefli smashed in a low drive from eighteen yards out. Leigh Begam nearly doubled the lead soon after but volleyed wide when well placed and the sides went into the break with the Robins leading 1-0.The second half was pretty much one way traffic and it was that man Schlaefli again who raced clear and calmly beat the keeper to double Budleigh's lead. Leigh Begam added the third with a brave header and sub Scott Howarth sealed the win with a late strike. Budleigh will now meet either Seaton or Sidmouth in the Final on Saturday, May 23 (2pm).The Budleigh match night squad was: B Evans, Owen, West, Bradshaw, Rose C, Higham, Grover, Ellis, Turner, Begam, Schlaefli S, Poulton, Howarth, White L, Sprakes and Free.The star man was Bradley Evans, of whom player boss Alex Free said: "Although Bradley (Evans) had precious little to do the fact is that what did come his way he dealt with very efficiently.
