Exmouth Amateurs 1, Upottery 8

Upottery powered to victory on their visit to Exmouth to stay four points clear at the top of Fresha League Division Three.

Joe Jones, Dan Scadden, Mark Tucker, Steve Morris, Steve Pepperell, Jake Welsh and a brace from Sam Winslade were responsible for the latest haul of goals.

The eight that Dan Prettejohn’s team netted in Exmouth takes their season’s haul to 60 from 17 league and cup games.

Prettejohn said: “I was not happy at half-time. I thought we were well below par in the first period, but we had a chat at the break and I asked the players to give me more and, to be fair to them, they did just that.”

Upottery have two more to play before the end of the year. After Saturday’s visit from eighth placed Tedburn they travel on December 28 to Ottery St Mary.

After that the villagers will have just seven league games left and a top three finish and promotion to the third tier of the Fresha league looks very on!

Prettejohn says: “We are in a good place, but we need to stick at it and not drop these current high levels of performance. I want the next two won so that we can sit pretty going into the new year.”
