Farway on form in Inter cup

PUBLISHED: 20:31 11 November 2010




FARWAY Utd are through in their favourite cup, the Devon Intermediate Cup, after beating Langdon 3-0 at the weekend.

But it was no showstopper of a game, more a run of the mill affair. Manager Andy Baily said: “ They were never really in it, but we never really looked that good either!”

And, on a muddy pitch, it was 0-0 at half time. After the break it was down to skipper Phil Derryman to get the ball rolling, he scored a well-worked goal after 55 minutes and that was followed up by carbon copy strikes from Bradley King and James Salter.

Man of the Match for Farway was defender Dave Dare.

The East Lee pitch was muddy after Friday’s rain, and with further rain forecast this week, it is not looking good for Saturday’s home game against Misterton.

Baily said: “It’s not wet enough to call it off now but if we have the rain they say is coming then it will definitely be doubtful.”

Farway Reserves lost 4-0 last week to Chard Utd. They have a new manager at the helm. Paul Salmon is back in charge, aided by Chris Haines.

Also in the Devon Intermediate Cup, Millwey Rise had an amazing 16-0 win over Tedburn St Mary.
