Farmer spot on as Honiton Town bag second succesive win

PUBLISHED: 13:02 01 December 2011

Honiton Town continued their revival with a 1-0 win at Broadclyst.

A second successive clean sheet victory has also lifted Town out of the Division Two bottom three for the first time this season!

The goal that decided matters was a penalty awarded in the 75th minute when Mark Bowles was bundled over in the box and Sam Farmer made no mistake for the spot. It was 17-year-old Dale Davison who once again caught the eye for another exemplary shift at right back whilst central defensive duo Darren Witt and Ben Welch played their part to help keeper Ben Kayes keep a second successive clean sheet.

Town boss Gary Osbourne said: “We deserved to win and also to keep a clean sheet. Dale (Davison) was superb again at right back but everyone put a healthy shift in for the cause. All the hard work on the training ground is paying off. The recent upturn in results is no fluke, the players are working very hard and preparing ever so well and getting their just rewards.”

Since a 3-2 defeat at Uplowman on October 15th Town have drawn three and won two and are actually now just six points and six places off sixth placed Colyton!

Next up for Town is Saturday’s visit to a Newtown side that will start the day two places and three points better off than them.
