BOVEY Tracey's Peninsula Premier team may be stealing the limelight with their FA Vase run, but anyone who has been following the the reserve side, currently leading SDFL Division One, will have witnessed one of the league's recent success stories.
Turn the clock back almost 12 months, and Bovey Reserves, then a Division Two side, were causing one of the few Herald Cup upsets by knocking out Premier side Abbotskerswell.
This was after storming to the Division Three double with the league's only unbeaten record and the best defensive statistics to boot.
When manager Neil Snell departed for Watts, Blake & Bearne that summer, taking numerous players with him, the Moorlanders faced a rebuilding job.
Not only did they respond by taking the Division Two title, they also once again conceded fewer goals than any other SDFL side (along with Premier champions Buckland).
They also ended the season with a 12-match winning streak, increasing that to 15 this season before their 2-0 loss at home to Totnes and Dartington Reserves.
This weekend, Bovey Reserves turn their attention to the Herald Cup, as they take on holders Watcombe Wanderers at the Recreation Ground in a postponed first round tie.
If the chance of an upset wasn't enough motivation, Bovey Reserves have the incentive of atoning for last season's third round defeat at Watcombe.
In the second round, last year's runners-up Buckland Athletic Reserves make their third trip to Moor Road where struggling Ipplepen Athletic will make a fourth attempt to pull off a shock result.
Dean Baker's side were unlucky not to get a point in their opening home league fixture against the champions, but were comfortably beaten in the Devon Premier Cup and again in the reverse league fixture at Homers Heath.
Buckland, on the other hand, remain at the top of the Premier, with two games in hand and no points dropped.
Defender Matt Guy has been among the goals for Bucks, opening his account against Ipplepen and popping up with another in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Newton Spurs.
Spurs will be pleased to have taken four points from Bucks this season and prepare to entertain Division Two side Harbertonford.
Brixham struggled at home against the top six last season, so a 3-0 triumph at home to Kingskerswell & Chelston will have delighted Jason Couch.
Couch's side play host to Division Four leaders and league top scorers Roselands; Kingskerswell & Chelston play Kingsteignton in the league.
Sean Finch seems determined to only deliver his goals in threes, with yet another hat-trick last weekend.
New strike partner Curtis Booth weighed in with a brace to complete a 5-1 victory over Watts, Blake & Bearne. WBB are at home to Galmpton Reserves in the league.
Upton Athletic joined the top six with a 3-0 win at Stoke Reserves; Upton will travel to Division Five's Torbay Police, while Stoke take on Division Four side Ilsington Villa.
Ivybridge Reserves secured an impressive 2-1 win at Loddiswell, striker Jon Noble with both goals, and host Division Three leaders Buckland & Milber. Loddiswell will travel to Ashburton, also in Division Three.
Elsewhere, Broadhempston are expected to see off Division Six outfit Malborough.
Goal-happy Dartmouth AFC, who won 6-1 at Buckfastleigh last weekend, face a tough trip to Division Two leaders Newton United.
In Division Four, Watcombe Reserves' 10-1 thrashing of Paignton Villa Reserves couldn't unseat Roselands from the top of the table, Roselands beating Dittisham 5-1.
Buckfastleigh Reserves are storming ahead in Division Five, and won 6-0 at Polonia Torbay, James Kelly scoring three.
AFC Staverton warmed up for their cup clash against Teignmouth Reserves with a win against Buckland & Milber Reserves.
And despite dropping two points at Ashburton Reserves, Watcombe Thirds still head Division Six.
Second-placed Barton will relish the chance of an upset at home to local rivals Waldon.
