Braunton Reserves and Torridgeside Reserves became the first teams to book their places in the semi-finals of the Combe Martin Cup on a rain-affected weekend for North Devon football.

Braunton reached the last four by overcoming a stubborn Pilton Academicals by two goals to one.

Pilton have improved considerably since the start of the season, and led until late on during Saturday’s quarter-final tie.

But despite an unconvincing performance, it is Braunton who went through thanks to late goals from Ollie Stevens and Johnny Shury.

Torridgeside are also through to the semi-finals, having convincingly beaten Shamwickshire Rovers Reserves on Saturday.

They put four past Shammy to reach the last four, where they will face either Merton or Hartland.

One league game survived in the Senior Division - but it produced 10 goals.

Chittlehampton were on the right side of that scoreline, beating Merton 8-2.

Chris Dent hit a hat-trick and Bobby Davidson scored twice. Rob Reed, Jordan Roberts and Mitch Thorne all scored for Chittle.

Merton’s goals came from James Ashton and Liam Brend.

As with the Premier Division, Intermediate One was also completely washed out by the poor weather conditions on Saturday.

There were no games played in Intermediate Two, either, but one NDJ Cup quarter-final did go ahead.

Georgeham and Croyde Reserves are the first team to reach the semi-finals of this year’s competition following their 4-1 victory away at Woolsery Reserves on Saturday.

They will face Ilfracombe Thirds or Fremington Reserves for a place in the final.

The weather does not look great for this weekend either, but there are a number of games scheduled across all four divisions.

In the Premier Division, second-placed Braunton will have the chance to close the gap to leaders Torridgeside when they travel to Shamwickshire Rovers.
