EXMOUTH Amateurs' first team travelled to Culm United in the East Devon Senior Cup and came away with a convincing victory, writes Ross England.

Not only did they score two goals, but hit both post and crossbar and had a goal disallowed.

A very strong, swirling wind made it difficult for Ammies to play their usual slick passing game, but still dominated the game in the early stages and Adam Bartlett hit a post with a shot from outside the box.

Ammies thought they had scored the opening goal of the contest via a Steven Coulam free kick, only for the referee to rule it out, stating he had signalled for an indirect free kick!

The second half saw Ammies in even more determined mood and they were rewarded with a goal from an excellent header from Mitchell Cudd, following a Tim Wright corner.

Simon Withers then hit the bar from 30 yards as Ammies continued to press home their advantage.

The second goal came via the boot of Steven Coulam, who curled the ball into the net after his initial free kick had been partially cleared.

Shaun Coulam had the chance to make the game safe for Ammies, but managed to miss the target from 10 yards.

Ammies were never in any danger of losing, however.

Elsewhere at Ammies last weekend, second team boss Nick Adair knew it was not going to be his day when his cup game against South Zeal was switched to Moretonhampstead.

The players discovered a surface which was seemingly unplayable, but the game went ahead and Ammies were 2-1 up via goals from Mark Crellin and Liam Cooke before South Zeal snatched an equaliser to take the game into extra time. Despite Jack Penzer netting in the extra half hour, the hosts scored twice to win the game 4-3.

n There is double action at Warren View this week with the second and third team at home to Upottery and Westexe Rovers, respectively.

The first team travel to Clyst Valley.
