Sidmouth Town 4 – Budleigh Salterton 2

SWPL Div 1 East Wednesday 26th December 2018

On a grey but thankfully dry morning it was Sidmouth’s turn to host Budleigh Salterton in this annual Boxing Day fixture, the pitch was heavy in places and in front of a crowd of 82 the game kicked off, Town started the better of the two sides but the Robins soon got into their stride and it was a fairly even affair until on the 30th minute Matt Salter shot home from the edge of the box to give Town a 1-0 lead, 5 minutes later Harry Taylor headed home from a Ferenc Bodor cross to double the lead 2-0, shortly before the break Budleigh reduced the arrears and it was 2-1 at half time.

About 15 minutes into the 2nd half and Bodor went on a mazy run beat the defender and shot home from a narrow angle, a fine individual goal. Once again the Robins notched home to reduce the deficit and keep the contest alive, 75 minutes in and Chippy Churchill intercepted a poor back pass rounded the keeper and coolly and slotted home. Budleigh stuck to their task and for the last 15 minutes put a lot of pressure on the Sidmouth defence but to no avail and Town ran out 4-2 winners.

Sidmouth Starting Eleven: Jake Wreford, Dan Churchill, Matt Salter, Chris Duchenski, Ben Clay, Danny Burwood, Ethan Slater, Danny Clay, Harry Taylor, Ollie Jarrett, Ferenc Bodor.

Subs Used; Jack Hatswell, Will Jenkins.

Next game away to Newton Abbott Spurs on the 5th January 3pm KO.
