Town bounce back at Beer - next it’s a Sidmouth re-match!

SEATON Town’s Fresha League title hopes suffered a bitter sweet weekend.

On Saturday Town were beaten 2-1 at title rivals Sidmouth Town but responded superbly to win their local derby with fierce rivals Beer Albion 4-0 on Monday afternoon.

Town boss Josh Stunell had no complaints about the defeat to Sidmouth saying: “The better side won on the day. We did choose absolutely the wrong day and the wrong opposition to have a mare, but that’s football and I’ve no complaints about the outcome of the game.”

Mark Hancock scored what was a consolation in the Manstone Road game but, 48 hours later, it was a very different Town side that took neighbours Beer apart, and on their own pitch too!

Sam Dibling (2), Alex Wheatley and Ben Ede struck the goals leaving Stunell to say: “hats off to the lads who were clearly very upset with their collective shift at Sidmouth. It was the easiest pre-match chat of my life as everyone in the team went out at beer with a steely determination to put right what they’d got wrong on Saturday.”

This Saturday comes a swift return with Sidmouth Town, who were 5-0 winners at Thorverton on Monday afternoon. However, Stunell does not think Saturday’s Colyford Road clash will necessarily determine the title winners. He said: “I think there’s every chance of a twist and turn yet so, whist Saturday’s winners will be in the box seat, I fancy it will not be over, whichever way the game goes.”
