CAN KIRTON STOP THE PREMIER LEADERS TONIGHT & A FULL SATURDAY PROGRAMME

Crediton United Res have the unenviable task of stopping juggernaut Premier Division leaders Alphington when they line up against each other tonight at Lords Meadow 6.45pm. The Alphas are already eleven points clear and not conceding goals, so Kirtons task looks formidable.
Then tomorrow their nearest challengers Kentisbeare swing back into action at home to Sidmouth Town Res, who seem to do better on their travels than at home.
Lapford still in the hunt have a derby game against Sandford, and a huge game at Upottery where they welcome Winkleigh.
Okehampton Res and Elmore Res battle for relegation points at Simmons Park.

Division One leaders Wellington Res complete their season at home to Lympstone and victory would take them five points clear, but title rivals St Martins and the University 3rds are not in action.

Central are 12 points ahead of the pack in Division Two but face arguably their biggest challengers at Westexe Park Rangers who face a very busy end of season.

In Division Three after their midweek defeat at Bravehearts, second place Broadclyst hope to bounce back at Hemyock. The Braves meanwhile are planning another upset against third place Heavitree United.
Leaders Witheridge meanwhile tackle Exmouth Spartans in the Bill Slee cup both looking for a semi final slot.

The Heart of Oak have the chance to trim back Division Four leaders Bickleigh who have the day off, when they are at Morchard Bishop.

Victory for Starcross Dons at Whipton & Pinhoe would see them become Division Five champions if St Martins Res and Upottery Res drop points in their respective clashes with Exeter United and Tops United.

Division Six leaders Railway FC have a home date against Witheridge Res which could see them six points clear.

Uplowman United could go eight points ahead of their Division Seven rivals if they win at home to Newton St Cyres Res.

Just one match in Division Eight with second place Heavitree United Res seeking to get within sight of the runners up slot with maximum points at home to Starcross Res.

Finally the Football Express cup quarter final between City Raiders and Ex Dons is on at Bettysmead, just two days after the Dons won their league meeting on the same pitch 4-3. The winners this time will face Beacon Knights in the semis probably next week as the final is due to take place on May 1.
