It was a somewhat scrappy affair, with both teams occasionally showing glimpses of what they are capable of.

The early chances fell to the visiting Vikings who were unable to capitalise.

The Robins grew into the game, but half-time arrived with the game still without a goal.

The deadlock was broken 11 minutes into the second period following a partly cleared corner kick, the ball was put back into the box by Lewis Hillier and flicked on by Will White for the smallest player on the pitch, Joseph Vincent, to head home.

Both defences continued to dominate with no addition to the score sheet, giving the hosts a welcome three points and a winning start to the new campaign.

The Robins had been due to begin their season the week before with a Wotton Printers Devon U16 Cup tie against Feniton. However, Budleigh were unable to raise a side owing to commitments to rugby and other Sunday sports and, as an alternative date could not be agreed, forfeited the game, handing Feniton a walkover into the next round.
