Honiton Town Reserves 1, Otterton 4

Honiton Town Reserves slipped to another disappointing defeat as they succumbed to one of their promotion chasing rivals in an East Devon derby.

Despite the score line, Town enjoyed large periods of second half dominance, but were unable to make that pay.

Charlie Lane scored the Town goal.

Manager John Lewis said: Going four goals down after 35 minutes was a blow, but thereafter we laid siege to their goal. I am actually disappointed we got nothing out of the contest as I felt we deserve something. It was a combination of excellent goal keeping and poor finishing that cost us. The teams effort, determination and spirit

was top notch, we played the ball on the floor and made them look decidedly average.”

On Saturday Town are away at Silverton.
