Torridgeside manager Barry Paine knows his side need to be at the top of their game if they are to lift the Throgmorton Devon Premier Cup on Thursday evening.

T-Side take on high-flying Bovey Tracey at Devon FA's Coach Road headquarters in Newton Abbot, having reached the final for the second consecutive year.

They suffered a 2-0 defeat to Teignmouth in last year's final, and Paine knows his side will need to be right on their game if they are to go one better this time out.

"It's going to be a tough game and they are one of the best teams in the league," said Paine.

"We've got to be tenacious and work hard both as individuals and as a team, because we know it's going to be difficult.

"We've got a better team this year, and we're a little bit stronger, but the opposition is stronger as well, and that's no disrespect to Teignmouth.

"We've come a long way in such a short space of time, and to reach our second Devon Premier Cup final says it all for the bunch of lads we have got, and I'm hoping we can go one better.

"We do create chances and if we can create them and keep them at bay, keep our shape and frustrate them then we've got a great chance.

"We'll give them respect, but we are not going to give them too much respect. If everyone is at the top of their game we can turn them over. We've just got to be mindful they are a good team."

Torridgeside have form on their side heading into the final. They made it five wins in a row in the South West Peninsula League's East Division on Saturday with a 2-0 win at University of Exeter. A Marc Bettiss brace gave T-Side all three points.

They finish their campaign on Saturday at home to St Martins, who drew 1-1 with Ilfracombe Town last time out.

A well-taken strike from Alfie Moulden pulled a youthful Bluebirds side level in the second half after the visitors had gone ahead in the first period.

Ilfracombe finish their season on Saturday at home to Bovey Tracey.

Holsworthy's West Division campaign ended with a 2-0 win at bottom-of-the-league Ludgvan.

Goals from Taren Stacey and Joe Barker ensured the Magpies ended the season on a high. They finish in eighth with 43 points, having won 12 of their 28 games and drawing four.
