WITH their regular glovesman unable to play in Saturday's Intermediate Two game against Bow AAC, Lympstone Reserves were fortunate to be able to call on the services of Scott Clayton.The Lympets' regular 1st team keeper was happy to oblige and turned in a man of the match performance that included a superb penalty save, helping the side to secure what was only a 7th point of the season. The club's secretary, and current 1st team boss, George Webster said: "He (Clayton) played very well and it was an all round fine effort by everybody to secure the point. There was plenty of effort and desire on show and that was good to see."The Reserves are at home again this coming weekend when they entertain Rockbeare Rangers and the scheduled visitors will be grateful that the fixture computer has thrown up this encounter. The East Devon side have only played eight matches compared to the 17 that Lympstone have completed and a home win would see Lympstone off the bottom of the table - at the visitors expense.With the Lympets' Senior side having their game last Saturday called off and being without a game this coming weekend, it means that the next outing for Webster's men will be the February 21 visit to Cliff Fields of Civil Service, who sit immediately above the Lympets. Webster says: "That next game is going to be massive in the context of our bid to avoid the drop from Senior Two. There's plenty of life left in us yet but there's no hiding from the fact that the next game is so important.
