Upottery scored ten goals in a Fresha League Division two game for the first time this season as they exacted sweet revenge on Culm United, a side that had beaten them 2-0 on the opening day of the season, thrashing them 10-1 at Glebe Park.

In seven home league outings this season the villagers have won all seven scoring 35 goals and conceding just seven!

Steve Morris continued his rich vein of scoring with five of the goals. Dan Scadden and Sam Farmer both bagged braces and Jamie Girton also found the back of the Culm net.

The one blemish on an otherwise perfect afternoon was the conceding of one; the visitors netting after Upottery had gone 2-0 up.

However, such was the resolve of the villagers to ‘get the job done’ that, immediately after conceding, they kicked off and promptly restored the then two-goal advantage!

Upottery boss Dan Prettejohn was very pleased post match. He said: “It really was a case of sweet revenge. We felt we owed them one for the opening day defeat and produced something special. Things here at the club really could not be going any better. It’s not by magic that we have reached this stage. Far from it. We seem to have everything right on and off the pitch. From the way the team are playing to the way we have such excellent support in terms of back up to the team and the support we are now drawing, home and away, has to be seen to be believed.”

Saturday (January 31), sees Upottery involved in the division’s Match of the Day when they host table-topping Colyton who suffered a fourth defeat of the campaign last weekend when beaten by the rapidly-improving Chulmleigh.

A twelfth successive victory for Upottery would take them to within nine points of Colyton who will have just eight to play in their league campaign after this meeting whist Upottery will have 15 more league outings.
