Rowson and Long net goals as Beer sink Clyst Valley

Clyst Rovers 0, Beer Albion 2 The Fishermen put serious breathing space between themselves and the Fresha league relegation places with a comfortable success on their visit to Winslade Park, on the outskirts of Exeter.
First half goals from Matty Rowson and Chris Long were sufficient to bank Beer three precious points.
Such was the Fishermen’s superiority throughout that keeper Steve Jones was a virtual spectator.
What made the result all the more impressive was that Beer travelled for the game without as many as five of their usual match day squad.
Manager Phil Crabb said: “If I was to be critical then I’d have to say we ought to have scored a lot more and that remains a concern. The clean sheet part of it is great, as of course is the three points which puts a big gap between us and those bottom three. I felt this was a key game and the players came up trumps to deliver the goods.”
You may also want to watch:
Beer sit eighth in the Fresha League top flight with six to play. They probably now need just four more points to be sure of staying out of the bottom three.
On Saturday they travel to a Morchard Bishop surprisingly beaten by bottom side Exmouth Amateurs last weekend.
