Bad weather once again left the fixtures list in the North Devon Gazette Football League looking somewhat depleted at the weekend - but the quarter-final stage of the Arlington Cup was finally completed.

Sporting Barum were particularly impressive, beating fellow Intermediate One side Morwenstow Reserves 8-0 to reach the last four.

Damian Green came off the bench to score a hat-trick, while there were two each for Stuart Cameron and Matthew Deakin.

Marcus Mahoney also netted to set up a semi-final clash with Ilfracombe Reserves.

‘Combe booked their place in the last four by beating Clovelly by a goal to nil on Saturday.
