The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN PREMIER SOUTH - By Jay Richard­son

POOLE Town came away from The Ian Moor­croft Sta­dium with a de­served three points af­ter a clin­i­cal dis­play in Devon.

Poole opened up brightly with James Con­sta­ble, Sam Grif­fin and Luke Roberts look­ing very dan­ger­ous.

It was that man Con­sta­ble who nearly opened the scor­ing on 20 min­utes but he was de­nied by a great Liam Arm­strong save.

The pres­sure was pil­ing on and the home team had only half chances to show for their ef­forts.

On the stroke of half time Poole took the lead when the Dol­phins broke into the box and Con­sta­ble slammed home the ball into the cor­ner of Arm­strong's net.

The sec­ond half saw Poole Town con­tinue where they left off and it was no sur­prise that on 55 min­utes the Dol­phins dou­bled their lead.

Roberts broke into the box and fired past Arm­strong giv­ing the keeper no chance.

Tivvy huffed and puffed but there was no way through the Poole Town de­fence mar­shalled by the im­pres­sive cap­tain Will Spetch.

Af­ter this vic­tory, and with games in hand, Poole ap­pear to be mark­ing them­selves out as se­ri­ous play off con­tenders while Tiverton slip to their third de­feat in their last four games.

STAR MAN: James Con­sta­ble (Poole) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
