Carl Throgmorton Devon Premier Cup, First Round:
by Martin Jones
Teignmouth proved too strong for East Cornwall league visitors Elburton Villa.
Hayden Roe scored Teigns’ first, heading home Sam Chapman’s looped cross in the 8th minute. Isaac Reed’s shot from distance was spilled by the away ’keeper in the 22nd minute but Roe doubled Teigns’ advantage, hooking the loose ball into the net. Chapman should have increased the lead in the 28th minute but put the ball wide of the target after Geoff Breslan’s astute pass had set him up. But two minutes later he atoned for his miss, scoring Teigns’ third with a blistering 25-yard strike. In the 43rd minute, Scott Telford’s powerful header from Reed’s corner gave Teigns a four goal lead at the interval.
Matt Eves replaced Geoff Breslan for the second half while Chris Bennett came on for Roe in the 50th minute and, on the hour, decisively converted a penalty after Chapman had been fouled to put Teigns five up. The scoring was completed in the 87th minute when Eves curled a 25-yard effort into the top corner of the net for the goal of the match.
FT: Teignmouth 6 – 0 Elburton Villa

Division One East/Carl Throgmorton Premier Cup, First Round
On Tuesday’s sole fixture, Crediton United climbed four places to 12th after they beat 2nd placed Galmpton United 4-2 at Lords Meadow; this was Galmpton’s third defeat on the trot having been unbeaten in their first nine matches of the season. Saturday switched attention to the Premier Cup, where Totnes & Dartington made it a hat-trick for the South Devon League as Buckland Athletic Reserves knocked them out 1-0. Three ties were all Peninsula League affairs which included St Martins winning 6-1 away at Liverton United and the tie between Appledore and Brixham ending early as alleged misconduct saw the match abandoned with Appledore leading 2-0. Galmpton United won away at Shamwickshire, the tie decided on penalties after a 2-2 draw, and Newton Abbot Spurs had possibly the result of the round as they won 4-0 away at South Devon League side Dartmouth, three goals coming before half-time. Player-manager Adam Dyson scored a hat-trick and Jake Elms was also on target. Jake Chisholm saw red for Spurs.
