Upottery 5, Abbotskerswell 0

Upottery produced a superb all-round show to claim a place in the second round of the Firewatch Devon Senior Cup.

Three first half goals saw the villagers in command and they added two more after the break to compete a nap hand clean sheet success.

Sam Winslade bagged a brace and the other goals were scored by Steve Pepperell, Dan Scadden and Aaron Lake.

Central midfielder Scadden was the star of the show and Jac Trevisic was fully deserving of his clean sheet.

Upottery boss Dan Prettejohn said: “We played well. It was a very convincing and confident display from all areas of the team. We took our goals well and passed the ball very crisply.”

Upottery have a big day to savour this coming Saturday (September 21) when they have the official opening of the splendid new changing facilities at Upottery.

Prettejohn says: “It’s a big day with the official opening. We are having a barbecue and live music together with a Disco to follow the game with Hemyock which kicks off at 4pm. We are so grateful to the Upottery Playing Fields Association who have driven this project over a period of two to three years to ensure that on Saturday we get to enjoy some great facilities and we, as football club, salute the efforts of the association in delivering this facility.”

Saturday’s opposition sit top of the table and a two goal win for Upottery would leave the villagers celebrating both the opening of the new changing rooms and also being top of the Fresha League Division Three table.
