MARINES AFC manager Shaun Foster missed his side's Throgmorton Cup defeat at Premier Division Clyst Rovers.Had he been present he would not have enjoyed the way his defence dealt with the home strike force in the second half of the game at Waterslade Park.The game was locked at 1-1 after an evenly contested first half. Four second-half goals saw the Marines go down 5-1. It's back to Eastern Division League action on Saturday as the Marines make the short trip into Exeter for a game at Civil Service.Next Wednesday (October 29) it's the 'big one' - the derby meeting against Exmouth Town at Southern Road.l IT was another very forgettable afternoon for both Woodbury and Lympstone Football Clubs as they both slumped to Devon & Exeter League defeats.Lympstone went down 6-1 to a very strong Morchard Bishop side. It was the Lympets' third defeat in five Senior Two outings. On Saturday they take a break from league football to begin their challenge in the Bill Slee Cup when they host Kentisbeare.Woodbury went down 2-0 at Crediton United Reserves and lost the chance of moving up into a top three berth in Senior Four. On Saturday the villagers are, like Lympstone, in the Bill Slee Cup and they too have a home game, against St Martin's Reserves.l TOPSHAM TOWN fell to a narrow defeat, beaten by the odd goal in three by University. James Ware netted the Tops' goal and there was plenty within the team's performance to give boss Danny Carpenter reasons to be cheerful."We were rather unfortunate not to take something from what was a close encounter," said Carpenter."We are growing in confidence and that is shown when we get it down and pass the ball. "On Saturday the Tops are in East Devon Senior Cup action when they take on a Feniton side they have already beaten 3-2 in the Premier Division this term. "We came back from two down to take the points in the league meeting and I have no doubt they (Feniton) will see this as a chance to get their own back," said Carpenter."I can see us making genuine progress and if we play as I know we can then it will be another fascinating contest."l THE third-round draw for the Raddon Vending Devon Premier Cup served up a real East Devon derby with the meeting of Exmouth Town and Budleigh Salterton at Southern Road on Saturday, November 8. The Royal Marines also enter the competition at the third-round stage and they will be delighted with a game against a Teignmouth Town side they beat last weekend in the Peninsula League Eastern Division. The full draw is: Appledore v Stoke Gabriel, Axminster v Totnes & Dartington, Bovey Tracey v Plymstock, Braunton v Liverton United, Crediton v Vospers Oak Villa, Exmouth Town v Budleigh Salterton, Galmpton Gents v Alphington, Kingsteignton v Okehampton Argyle, Old Suttonians v Buckfastleigh Rangers, Ottery St Mary v Bickleigh, St Martins v Exeter Civil Service, Teignmouth v Royal Marines, BOCA Seniors v Kingskerswell & Chelston, Heavitree Social United v Bere Alston United, Plymouth Parkway Reserves v Clyst Valley, Tavistock Reserves v Brixham Villa.
