Archant

Hatherleigh Town 5, Seaton Town 0

Despite the final score Town boss Josh Stunell was remarkably upbeat.

He said: “The margin of victory flatters them (Hatherleigh). They are a good side with a real threat in the final third, but this was one of those contests where everything they hit turned to gold whilst we were unable to make plenty of possession and bags of chances stick! What impressed me most of all was the team spirit which, for the second week running was of the highest possible order. I see a real resolve about this Town side. Okay we got beat by five, but on another day we’d have won this one and I am sure, if we continue to show the sport of spirit and togetherness that we have in the past two games then the undoubted quality we have in the squad, will, shine through and the results will come, of that I have no doubt.”

On Saturday Town travel to Morchard Bishop.

Stunell says: “It’ll be another tough game, but I expect us to get something up there.”Town travel to Mid Devon having managed just one clean sheet all season home and away. Ironically that clean sheet came on their last visit to Mid Devon when they won 1-0 at Willand Rovers.
