Millwey Rise were beaten 4-0 by Newton St Cyres in a Bill Slee Cup first round tie.

With the opposition playing their league football a division higher than Rise it was always going to be a tough game.

Rise glovesman Brett Garner made an early save, but was eventually beaten when Millwey were punished for being sloppy with a throw-in.

An equaliser so nearly followed soon after, but an effort from Nathan Womersley went through the goalkeepers legs, but wide of the goal!

Minutes later Womersley was put through by Keith Forsey, but the opportunity was cleared up by a very good recovering centre half.

During the break, Millwey boss Dan Murnane told his players they were very much ‘in the contest’ and Rise made a fine start to the second half with midfield trio Keith Forsey, Dave Bridges and Ty Allen pressing the opposition, not allowing them to play the football in which they were in the first half.

Dave Bridges and Womersley combined well prior to Sam Wadden sadly heading wide of an open goal before the Mid Devon side doubled their lead.

James Rockett, Wayne Wadden and Mark Pike took over from Nicky Land, Wayne Sam Waddon and Jack Farrant, but even with fresh legs in the action, Rise were unable to find a way back and two late goals ended the contest.

The Rise Man of The Match award went to Keith Forsey (sponsored by The Fisherman’s Wife Lyme Regis), who worked tirelessly throughout.

On Saturday (September 15), Rise are in Devon Senior Cup action at home to Babbacombe Corinthians (2pm).
