Budleigh beaten at home by Alphington

PUBLISHED: 09:37 30 August 2018 | UPDATED: 09:37 30 August 2018




Budleigh Salterton went down 5-1 when they hosted Alphington at Greenway Lane, writes Alan Beer.

The Robins’, who went into the game having lost their first three games of the new campaign fell behind as early as the fourth minute when a Sam Webber cross from the edge of the penalty area went in off the far post with home glovesman Martin Hindle unable to keep it out.

In the 20th minute the visitors doubled their lead when harry warren pounced on a poor clearance.

Budleigh hit back and were denied a goal back when a Ross James effort was headed off the line.

Fifteen minutes into the second half Budleigh got the goal their general play deserved and, not for the first time this early season, young Ethan Slater provided the ‘assist’ for Ben Newman to net.

Five minutes later and Budleigh so nearly levelled when a Karl Riddell header flew just wide.

Typical of what usually happens to a side that then look to ‘chase the game’ in a bid to get back on level terms, Budleigh were caught on the break and harry warren doubled his tally.

Two further later goals from Callum Head and Ryan Moody sealed Budleigh’s fate.

For the Robins’ Ben Newman impressed in central midfield and Karl Riddell had another fine game at the heart of the defence.

On Saturday (September 1) Budleigh go in search of a first point of the season when they visit Brixham (3pm). The Robins will need to find a new glovesman for the next three games as goal keeper Martin Hindle is beginning a three match ban after his recent red card.
