Upottery 5, Roborough 0 Upottery moved smoothly into the 3rd round of the Firewatch Devon Senior Cup with a comprehensive defeat of the Plymouth and District League side.

Three first half goals had the contest effectively over by the interval.

Steve Morris stuck all three in the first half and the other goals came from Mark Tucker and Stewart Coombe.

Coombe celebrated his goal with a cradle rocking action as he was also celebrating becoming a father after the birth recently of his daughter.

Upottery boss Dan Prettejohn said: “It was a very good all-round show against a team who I am afraid did not put very much into the contest. That might have been down to the way we played of course. I am very happy with how things are going and now we can all look forward to a nice local derby at Ottery St Mary on Saturday.”
