East Devon Cup: Thorverton 5, Wellington Reserves 2

The Reserves showed their Jekyll and Hyde character as they were embarrassed at Thorverton in the East Devon Cup.

After the recent weeks of early goals, it was Wellington who were to suffer this affliction this time round, finding themselves 4-0 down within 35 minutes and effectively out of the cup an hour before the final whistle.

Poor defending and a lack of tracking back cost them dearly.

Ollie Nott pulled a goal back before half-time to at least give some pride, if only tiny, to the halfway scoreline.

More resolve was shown in the second half, but Wellington never looked like the same team from the previous week’s home hammering of Bow.

The second half ended even at 1-1 thanks to a good header from Josh Baker but the overall scoreline of 5-2 was unarguably deserved from this showing.

Changes will inevitably be made to this week’s outing to Exeter University.
