LYME Regis stormed up to fourth in the Devon & Exeter League Division One with a thumping 6-0 victory over Bickleigh at Davey Fort.

A brace each for Cody Boucher and Keiran Daniels helped the Seasiders on their way along with two strikes from Darren Lock saw the hosts home

Lyme boss Robin Townsend said: “They are bottom for a reason. The game was dead after 15 minutes when we went 2-0 up.

“But, all that stopped because when you play against a team that you think you can beat, the tricks and flicks come out and we only went in at 3-0 at half-time.

“We saw the game out but, against the better sides, you can’t afford to be doing all of these tricks because they will come unstuck.

“But, fair play to the lads, they dug in and got the job done.”

It was also the Seasiders’ first clean sheet of the season, something that was a huge goal for their manager.

He added: “That’s what I wanted, that’s what I said at half-time. We haven’t had one yet and that was really pleasing. As a back four, we played really well. It’s all looking good.”

This is still a relatively new side at Davey Fort and Townsend is hoping his players can produce more performances in their next three games – all of which come at home.

The manager explained: “We’re getting there, it’s slowly coming together.

“We’re fourth in the league with games in hand and the bigger games are coming up now and we are going to try and go on a bit of a run.”
