Reserve team news
Devon & Exeter Premier League title
Tiverton Town Reserves strengthened their grip on the Devon & Exeter Premier League title with a 2-1 win over local rivals at Ladysmead on Wednesday evening. Goals came from top scorer Dave O’Connor and Tom Tricker.
Three points picked up away at the Uni...
On a very windy cold day on a very sticky pitch which had a couple of rugby games played the previous day, the ressies picked up a vital win. Tivvy played the first half with the wind and after an onslaught of crosses we scored from the head of Richard Groom after an in swinging free kick from Andrew Thompson. We were unable to convert a number of other chances created in the first half. We changed the formation in the 2nd half as we were against a strong wind into a more defensive Sharpe of a 4-5-1 which was working very well until we conceded a silly free kick just outside our box, the resulting free kick was met by one of the Uni players to level the score. Ten minutes later after a couple of half chances. we won a corner which was taken again by Thompson and was met by the club captain Ben Ashford to head towards the goal line were Jessie Howe was on hand to convert from close range to put Tivvy 2-1 up. It was a fantastic three points gained and another match crossed of the list. We are away to Heavitree next week which will be another good test as yesterday was. Just wanted to say it was brilliant to have Danny Jones up and about supporting the lads yesterday after breaking his leg two weeks earlier... Team: Wannell, Coomb, Ashford, Groom, Tricker, Furness, Thompson, Bradford, Mortimer, Howe & Oconnor. Subs: Rapo(Mortimer) Kewley not used.
5 Star performance.....
Having only played three minutes of football in the last four weeks and playing against a hard working disciplined opposition, I was extremely pleased with the way the team played and went about breaking down a stubborn Beer side.
Our first goal was scored by Jessie Howe as he received an inch perfect cross from Dave O'Conner to the far post. The second goal came along 10 minutes later and was a carbon copy of the first goal with O'Conner out pacing Beer's left back to cross to the far post with Howe arriving, to show some neat footwork to score his second goal.
Once again a good in-swinging cross was met by the hard working Adam Wakeley to who controlled the ball on his chest, and neatly converted his chance against his former club.
Our 4th and 5th goals were scored by the outstanding Richard Groom. Both scored within the six yard box.
A very pleasing result as we haven't got a fixture next week and it was important to try and maintain our momentum at the top of the table.
Tiverton would like to welcome new signing Russel Coombes to the club.
Team: Wannel, Ashford, Groom, Coombes, Wakeley, Oconner, Jones, Bradford, Passmore, Rapo, Howe, Subs: Kewley(Coombes) Tricker(Passmore) Furness(Ashford) Searle not used.
Good away day at Blustery Seaton.
A very windy and somewhat bumpy pitch, saw Tivvy get off to a decent start. Not the best conditions for football, but after an early change of shape Tivvy quickly raced into a 2 goal lead through a double from Jesse Howe. The third added not log after by Richard Groom with a swivel shot in the box after the ball landed at his feet at a corner, and was turned into the corner of the net. 3-0 up at half time, but with the wind now against us it was much harder to get out of our half. However two more good chances fell to Jesse to score his hat-trick, but unfortunately couldn't convert. John Wannel was rarely fully extended in goal, but when called upon made a few excellent one on one saves. Seaton did score after a free header from a free kick, and only by our own mistakes, or long balls pumped into the box seemed their best option for more. All in all a good team effort for another three points away from home, and it will be nice to get back to home turf next week.
Team: Wannell, Skinner(Wakeley), Goff, Groom, Furness, Tricker(Rapo), Jones, Bradford, Passmore, Howe(jagger-Caine), O'Connor.
Subs: Wakely, Weeks, Kewley, Rapo, Jagger-Caine.
