Upottery, who play their football in the Macron Devon and Exeter League, were good value for the victory over their South West Peninsula League Eastern Division hosts.

A first half goal, scored by Jon Lambert, separated the sides at half-time and the cup tie was finally put to bed with 10 minutes remaining by a goal from Joe Jones.

Upottery boss Dan Prettejohn said: “We played well and it was a good all-round performance. So good in fact that when I was asked post match about the Man of the Match performance I really could not come up with an individual and so it had to go to the whole team – and they all deserved it!”

Next up for Upottery is a Macron League game on Saturday (March 9) when they entertain Witheridge at Glebe Park (3pm).
