Mens Reserves Register First Win of League Campaign
Offwell Rangers 0 - 3 Ilminster Town Reserves - Devon & Exeter Football League Division 5
After last week's draw in the league's opening fixture Ilminster Town 2nd's made the trip to Offwell Rangers in the first away fixture of the season.
Ricky Anderson who has enjoyed a fine start to the season opened the scoring with an excellent top corner finish to make it 0-1 to the visitors.
The Offwell bobbly pitch gave Ilminster little hope of any smooth flowing football but it was Ilminster who looked the more likely to score as opportunities fell to Warren Gabbidon and deadline day signing Liam Riste.
A half time message of improved quality in possession and to get Davi Rodrigues on the ball more seemed to do the trick as the boys in blue started the 2nd half lively as Ilminster pinned Offwell back creating excellent opportunities to add the 2nd.
It wasn't long before the hard work paid off as Ilminster found there 2nd and soon after the 3rd with last seasons golden boot winner Warren Gabbidon opening up his tally for the season.
A much improved performance from last week and an excellent 2nd half gave Ilminster a well deserved 3 points.
Man of the Match
