More referee praise

Seasiders and Tops earn full marks from referee Cairns

Top Devon & Exeter referee Mike Cairns felt he could not let today’s thrilling encounter at Colyford Road between Seaton Town and Topsham Town go without praise. Both teams are struggling in Premier but Mike took to his computer for the reasons he outlines below.

“After the final whistle I was compelled to congratulate both teams following a hard-fought competitive game played in driving wind, torrential rain and importantly completely within the framework of the Laws. Despite the deteriorating field of play and increasingly difficult conditions, both teams continued to play end to end football in a game finely balanced at 3-2 albeit, Seaton Town scored twice more in added time. This was truly a great advert for grassroots football and a privilege to have officiated this game. Congratulations again to Seaton Town and Topsham Town”.

Kind regards
Mike Cairns
