History is on the horizon for Lympstone Football Club as they are just one win away from reaching their first ever Devon County Cup Final.

The Lympets performed superbly to win 4-3 on penalties at Central FC after the game had ended 1-1, Brad Worthington scoring the Lympstone goal that ensured the game went to spot-kicks.

Defeat for Hatherleigh Town and Halwill means Lympstone will be the only representatives from the Devon & Exeter League left in the semi-finals, where they are joined by AFC Dumnonii from North Devon and South Devon duo Paignton Saints and Newton Abbot Spurs.

In the Devon Intermediate Cup last four, Starcross Dons and Railway FC will fly the East Devon flag alongside South Brent and Watcombe Wanderers.
