North Tawton 0, East Budleigh Reserves 7

East Budleigh Reserves completed their league campaign in style with a crushing victory over bottom side North Tawton last Saturday taking their goal tally to 17 in the two games played against their hosts, writes Mark Auton.

Joe Rosser made his return to the starting line-up and after starting the game well with some powerful running crossing gave Budleigh the lead, taking the ball in his stride from Rory Waite’s pass to finish with aplomb.

Ben Wyatt and Ryan Britton fought for every ball in the midfield and when the latter alongwith Tom Christian competed on the edge of the 18 yard box the ball dropped nicely for Britton to drive home his tenth goal of the season.

Moments before the interval Budleigh had a third, whilst the defence of Rich Wyatt, Adam Wheatley, Colin Jeans and Waite mopped up well infront of keeper Mark Bown.

Budleigh continued to pepper the home defence after the re-start and it was Ben Wyatt who stepped up to curl the ball into the bottom corner, before they added a quick fifth.

Goal number sixth was well taken; A pinpoint clearance from Bown found Waite who inturn found Rosser whose diagonal cross was joyfully headed into the net by Dan Atkinson.

A late seventh completed the rout.

Man of the Match went to the all round goal scoring display from Ben Wyatt.
