Budleigh Salterton Reserves' match away to Seaton Town was a feisty Jurassic Coast battle between the Premier Division's two bottom clubs, writes SpursTom.
So zealous was the contest that the match official took the names of five players.
Budleigh began with the sun behind their backs and Seaton Town opened the scoring when a free-kick was launched high into the Robins area and Mark Hancock knocked it home.
What followed was a no-nonsense first half where both sides could have added to the scoring and perhaps at least one name could have entered the referee’s note book!
The second half was much more competitive, with the majority of the attacks coming from the hosts, whereas the visitors wished they had a genuine goal-scorer to call upon.
They did have joint Man of the Match performances though in the shape of debut playing right back Mathias Mourier and midfielder Graham Tapp.
As the game progressed the tackles got fiercer and the yellow card count began to grow!
The half’s only goal came from Jake Richards to wrap things up for the home side who had bagged a second win of the Fresha League top flight season at full-time – their other victory being in the meeting with Budleigh at Greenway Lane.
