Upottery Reserves made a superb start to their Macron Devon and Exeter League Division Six season with a 5-1 midweek evening win over Seaton Town Reserves.

The Glebe Park men made a slow start and it was Seaton who almost took the lead, only to be denied by the depth of then crossbar!

That was followed by Upottery glovesman Jake Welch making a super save. This seemed to sting the home side into action and, with 15 minutes on the clock, Sam Farmer got on the end of a loose ball in the area to fire Upottery into the lead. Once ahead, the Glebe Park men settled into their regular game and Farmer doubled his tally with a crisp finish before Brad King netted to make it 3-0 at half-time.

King scored a second early in the second half before Brad Morris came off the bench to slot a penalty and make it 5-0.

Upottery continued to dominate the second half, but no more home goals were forthcoming and Seaton got the late consolation they deserved to complete the scoring.
