PUBLISHED: 09:51 14 September 2018


East Budleigh booked a place in the next round of the Bill Slee Cup with a comprehensive victory over visitors Sampford Peverell, defeating the Mid Devon side 6-1, writes Mark Auton.

Budleigh began in the ascendency and it was Adam Jones that saw his header from a Liam Mabin corner graze the Sampford bar.

After 17 minutes, Budleigh went ahead; Tom Chudley was the scorer from a sweetly struck left foot shot that went in off the post.

It was 2-0 eight minutes later; Dan Reynolds and Hugo Demetre combining to set up Chudley, who finished well.

Five minutes into the second half the tie was effectively sealed with a solo run and tidy finish from George Harris.

Jacob Rice was always a threat on the right and won Budleigh the corner that led to goal number four; Mabin fired the ball in, Jones got a touch before Liam West stole in to nod the ball into the net.

A fifth for Budleigh arrived after 62 minutes; Liam Matthew and Ben Wiltshire involved in setting up Rice, who struck the upright, before Demetre cleverly squeezed the ball inside the near post.

The away side grabbed a consolation and also hit the Budleigh bar, before Matthew finished the job in the last minute with Demetre claiming the assist.

The Man of the Match award went to Demetre and Budleigh are in more cup action this Saturday (September 15) when they travel to Clyst Valley in the Devon Senior Cup (2pm).
