East Budleigh Res 4, Amory Green Rovers 0

East Budleigh registered their second win of the Fresha Division Six campaign with a comfortable victory, but made hard work of it in the process, writes Mark Auton.

Budleigh were always the better side and produced some good approach play until they reached the final third.

Despite this it took just 10 minutes to open the scoring; Joe Rosser gleefully rifling the ball past the visiting stopper when receiving a Tom Christian centre.

Budleigh then had further chances; Harry Trick had a shot blocked, before another good move involving Simon Pearce and Rosser led to Ben Wilks going close.

A good ball in from Max Tooby saw Trick head into the keepers arms to leave Budleigh with just a one goal cushion at the break.

Budleigh stopper Mark Bown was rarely troubled but handled well when called upon, whilst his back four of Tooby, Adam Wheatley, Colin Jeans and Gary Western restricted the away side to one major second half opportunity.

Wilks was denied early in the second half by a fine parry, but on 56 minutes it was 2-0. Pearce saw the Amory keeper unable to hold onto his deflected shot.

Four minutes later it was game over; An Amory defender kindly headed into his own net from a teasing Christian cross.

Budleigh had to wait until six minutes from time for number four; Substitute Rory Waite setting up Rosser to bravely head into the net.

Trick was voted Man of the Match whilst Ryan Britton also worked hard.

This Saturday Budleigh have an away fixture at Topsham 3rd’s (2.15pm).
