Watts Blake Bearne footballers Sam Sayer and Christian Pople show off the Mid-Devon Advertiser's pre-match preview which helped inspire their team to an emphatic 7-0 Herald Cup Final victory over Denbury Athletic.

In the article, Darren Nethercott, manager of underdogs Denbury – who play in division four of the South Devon League – said that due to the number of games the premier division side had played, they were 'looking knackered' and that 'his players could have the edge on fitness'.

However, joint WBB boss Matt Heyward said: 'We just put the Mid-Devon Advertiser article on the dressing room table prior to the game and got all the players to read it.

'It certainly helped fire them up.'
