LYMPSTONE boss Mike Foster showed his team the way to score as he blasted a superb hat-trick to help guide the side to a thrilling 5-4 win at home to Kentisbeare and, with it, gain a place in the 2nd round of the Bill Slee cup.Josh Sale and Ben Canning also scored for the Lympets, who return to league action this Saturday with a Cliff Fields meeting against University.Exmouth Amateurs Reserves also made Bill Slee cup progress as they won 2-0 at North Tawton, thanks to goals from Oran Osmond and Ryan Devlin. On Saturday the Ammies make the trip into Exeter to meet Civil Service Reserves in pursuit of Senior Two points.No cup joy for Woodbury, though, as they slipped out of the Bill Slee competition, beaten 4-0 at home by a strong St Martins side. On Saturday the villagers are at Crescent for a Senior Four game.Ammies Thirds made progress in the Football Express Cup beating Ottery St Mary Reserves 3-1 at Warren View with the goals coming from Ashraf Ghanmi, Andrew Taylor and Declan Budd. On Saturday the side host Axmouth United in a Senior Five game.Ammies 4ths are also in action this coming Saturday when they go to Wellington 3rd to contest an Intermediate One game.THERE was a second succesive blank Saturday for Otterton when their East Devon Senior Cup tie at Upottery fell foul of a water-logged Glebe Park and the tie will now be re-scheduled for a Sunday in the near future. On Saturday, Richard Tapp's side are in Devon & Exeter League top flight action when they travel to meet a Hatherleigh side who will begin the game four places and three points worse off than 9th placed Otterton. Tapp says: "It's frustrating to have had no game for two successive Saturday's, but there is nothing we can do about it. The absence of action may prove to be a good thing, for it will have allowed the little niggling injuries to clear up and, let's face it, the lads ought to be champing at the bit to get out and play and so I doubt it'll take much of a team talk to get them fired up for the task ahead at Hatherleigh.
