Devon Premier Cup: Frustrating afternoon at the office...
A very frustrating afternoon yesterday away at Beer in the Devon Premier cup. On a sunny afternoon, the team experienced a problem with the post, crossbar and an inspired home goalkeeper. Having the majority of possession throughout, we created enough chances to win any game. A excellent solo goal by Luke Mortimer made the score all square after the home side had gone one nil up. After 90 mins and in extra time the score remained at 1-1. The match went into penalties but unfortunately we lost 4-2. A real shame with the result, I couldn't fault the effort and work rate by all of the lads yesterday. On another day we could have won by double figures but it wasn't meant to be. Team: Wannell, Searle, Ashford, Goff, Frazer, Tricker, Jones, Skinner, Mortimer, O'Connar, Groom. Subs: Bradford(Frazer), Crook(Jones) Howe(Groom) Kewley not used.

Another good away win...
A very professional performance by the lads yesterday and a well deserved three points gained. The first of our three goals scored in the first half was scored by the head of Richard Groom after an excellent cross by Luke Mortimer. The second was a strange goal, a long kick from the hands of our goalkeeper John Wannell carried the length of the pitch with only one player reacting to the ball travelling was Groom again, with a neat left foot shot into the corner of the net. Fantastic cross from Isaac Furness from the left hand side of the pitch was met with strong powerful header from Groom again. The second half started badly as we gave away an early penalty which was converted by the home side. Our fourth goal was scored by Dave O'Connor after he intercepted a bad back pass. Good work by recent signing James Skinner down the right hand side of the pitch, he delivered a inch perfect cross for Groom to score his forth and the teams fifth goal. A great result as we do not have a league game for couple of weeks. We are travelling to Beer for the Devon Premier cup next Saturday. Team: Wannell, Searle, Asford, Goff, Furness, Mortimer, Jones, Tricker, O'Connor, Groom, Rapo. Subs: Skinner(Rapo), Frazer(Tricker), Townsead(Searle) not used: Cane & Crook.

Another clean sheet....
The reserves went into Saturday's home fixture with Budleigh full of confidence after keeping clean sheets in the last three league games, and scoring a total of 11 goals. The game from the start was really a non event as the away team had no intention of showing any form of attack play, and only sat back and defended their goal. After 45 minutes of possession in the first half we managed to create double figures of goal opportunities but only managed to score three goals. The first two goals where scored by the head of Ben Ashford showing the rest of the lads how to score. The third was goal was finished off by Keiran Rapo after some good work by Tom Tricker. The second had the same feel to it as the first as Budleigh seemed to only try and keep the score down. Our fourth goal was a great turn and strike from Dave O'Conner. Richard Groom a second half substitute scored our 5th goal after a great bit of individual skill riding two strong tackles and smashing the ball home. A fantastic header from Luke Mortimer after a pin point cross from Dan Jones made it 6-0. An in-swinging corner from Luke Mortimer was met firmly from the busy Dave O'Conner making it 7-0. A delightful lob from Luke Mortimer and another headed goal from Richard Groom completed the scoring to make the final score 9-0. The team: Wannell, Frazer, Ashford, Goff, Furness, Tricker, Jones, Bradford, Mortimer, Rapo, Oconner, Subs: Groom, Searle, Skinner, Townsend & Cane. The reserves would like to thank Gordon & his staff for the pitch condition, making it a perfect surface for our team to play our passing game.

Back to back wins for the reserves...
Saturday we entertained a very hard working Topsham Town team. A very professional performance by the team which ended with a two goal victory a goal in each half scored by Dave O'Connor and Richard Groom. Tuesday's home match against our local rivals Elmore, was an entertaining and fiercely challenged match. The first two goals in the game were scored by two ex-Elmore players, 1st one being an unstoppable powerful shot from just inside the 18 yard box by Luke Passmore, and the 2nd was from Kieran Rapo of his own making after chasing a back pass and having a 50/50 foot race with the goalkeeper to get to the ball first and win the challenge, resulting in the ball ending up in the net to make it 2-0 to Tiverton. Change of formation for us in the second half, to counter act their relentless long hopeful balls being played forward. Having a two goal lead we decided to "close up shop" and hit them on the break, which worked twice in the second half, first being John Bradford who went one on one with the goalkeeper, and neatly slotted it past the keeper to make it 3-0. Then good work by John Bradford breaking free again and squaring the ball across the edge of the box for Josh Serle to tap in, making our final score 4-0. Very pleasing to be able to change our system away from possession football to counter attacking football and being successful, the boys thoroughly deserve a pat on the back for their efforts. The reserve team would like to give a big thank you to the club for our new yellow home kit and also our new polo shirts and tracksuits.

Good away win in the Devon Premier Cup....
The team continued from last week's game against Newtown, by scoring 5 goals in the first half. First goal coming from Kieran Rapo with a close range finish, Beer Alston equalized after Tiverton gave away a penalty. Second goal was scored by Dave O'Connor with a delicate lob over the goalkeeper, the third was 5 minutes later and was a close range header from Luke Mortimer. The fourth goal was a good move which resulted with Isaac Furness slotting the ball home. And Dave O'Connor scoring his second of the game making it 5-1 at half time. Second half started with some strong fierce tackling from the home side, but two further goals created by Luke Mortimer and scored by Kieran Rapo, this making his tally five goals in the last two games. Overall a very good team performance away from home, but we are looking forward to having three home games in a row in the coming weeks. It's great to see the team scoring lots of goals, but that means the report is longer and more work for me to remember! Team:- Wannel, Furness, Searle, Ashford, Groom, Mortimer, Passmore, Jones, Wakley, Rapo, O'Connor. Subs:- Kewley for Furness, Crook for Searle, Goff for Groom.

Good result after last week's disappointment...
A fantastic response from the team yesterday after the disappointment of last week when we lost 2-0 to Sidbury. The first goal was scored in the first half by Jake Searle from inside the 6 yard box. The second half produced four further goals. John Bradford scoring after a one on one with the goalkeeper made it 2-0. Then two further goals were scored by Kieran Rapo, his first league goals scored since his move from Elmore. The scoring was completed by Luke Passmore with a powerful 30 yard shot, which made the final score 5-0. This was an important result and gaining 3 points for the team as we don't have a league game next weekend, as we are playing away in the Devon Premier Cup. With some separate news, we are delighted to have signed Scott Townsend and also that we have re-signed Darren Goff to the club for this season.

A brief roundup of pre-season and the start of the new season.
The team had a fantastic pre-season, being undefeated and playing some very attractive football, this was very pleasing to the management and coaching staff. We have managed to keep the majority of last season's squad with the addition of four new players signing for the club. We have won our first two league games, scoring 9 goals and conceding 2, but unfortunately last weekend against Sidbury we lost 2-0, this was our third game in seven days which might of taken it's toll on the players. We are away at Newtown this weekend with the players looking to bounce back and get a good result.

Martyn Rogers eyes three home wins from four
Martyn Rogers says that he would be satisfied with three wins from Tiverton Town's cluster of four home games. The Yellows, who host North Leigh on Saturday and Bishops Cleeve on Tuesday, are half-way through a four-match streak of home games. The first saw them put in a spirited display in the 2-1 defeat to Truro City in the Red Insure Cup, but they followed that up with a first win in five by beating Wantage Town 2-0 in the FA Trophy. As happy as Rogers was with Saturday's victory, he said it...

OPINION: Tiverton Town lacking in striking options?
Tiverton Town's problems in front of goal suddenly seem to be easing after both Jamie Mudge and Owen Howe scored in Saturday's 2-0 win over Wantage Town. With converting chances having been an Achilles heel for the Yellows in recent weeks, it was a relief for Martyn Rogers to see both his strikers hit the target, with Mudge's a particularly emphatic finish. Unfortunately for Tivvy, problems do remain, with news emerging last week that striker Khaled Badavi had sustained a broken foot. That...

Jamie Mudge glad to break Ladysmead duck
Striker Jamie Mudge has spoken of his relief at scoring the opening goal during Tiverton Town's win over Wantage Town on Saturday. Mudge scored the opener in the 2-0 FA Trophy victory, firing a powerful half-volley underneath Wantage keeper Gareth Tucker after 35 minutes. It was his first competitive goal at Ladysmead since returning to the club, and his third of the season having already netted twice in the 3-0 win at Wimborne Town last month. The Yellows have struggled to convert chances of...

But Wantage, who snatched a dramatic 2-1 win on their last visit to Ladysmead in September, came out of the traps quickly in the second half. They were denied by a couple of good stops from Chris Wright before Tom Melledew...
