Millwey Reserves went down 5-0 when they travelled to Mid Devon to face Culm United Reserves in a Macron League Division Eight game.
With a couple of players dropping out right before meet time, leaving only 13 players travelling, it progressed into a troublesome afternoon for the side.
Things got decidedly worse for Rise when goalkeeper Terry Male had to go off after just 15 minutes with what is thought to have been food poisoning and coach Craig Mitchell took on the glovesman duties. After 25 minutes Rise were 4-0 down, but that was the sum total of the first-half goal scoring.
Rise battled well, but their cause was further hit with injury prematurely ending the game for midfielder Matt Rocket, who was replaced by manager Mark Enticott.

Just one more goal was conceded in the second half by Rise.
So, a ‘bad day at the office’ for the team, but managers Mark and Craig would like to thank the players that turned up and kept battling throughout the game putting in 100 per cent effort and were pleased to see Millwey return home with great attitudes despite the result. Man of the Match was midfielder Sam Turner.
