LOTS OF TOP LEAGUE AND CUP ACTION THIS WEEKEND AND THE WEATHER LOOKS GOOD TOO
SATURDAY JANUARY 27
PREVIEW FOR THIS WEEKENDS ACTION
Premier Division title favourites Alphington reach the halfway point of their season with a visit from Clyst Valley who although languishing in the bottom half of the table will be looking to see if they can come slow down their hosts.
Joint leaders Kentisbeare would appear to have a much easier task at home to Elmore Res who are still struggling to get a point on the scoreboard.
Okehampton Argyle Res welcome third place Colyton, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth Town Res tussle in a Jurassic derby, the University Res have a visit by Lapford, and another big derby at Sandford against their closest neighbours Crediton Res.
Division One leaders St Martins make the short trip to Dawlish United who having lost all eleven matches this far could cause a tremor if they manage to avoid defeat.
However the big game in this division has to be the clash between Teignmouth Res and second place Wellington Res.
Clyst Valley Res and Westexe Park Rangers have the incentive of top spot in Division Two if either is victorious as current leaders Central turn their attention to the Bill Slee Cup where they face Honiton Town Res.
Beer Albion Res could also move into the top three if they win their derby at home to Farway United.
Division Three leaders Budleigh Salterton Res hope to get back to winning ways when they pop over the hill to Sidmouth Town Res, while their unbeaten closest rivals Witheridge are away on cup duty at Heavitree United.
Top game in Division Four could be a thriller with AFC Morchard Bishop at home to leaders Bickleigh. Second place Uplyme will not want to drop points at home to Cullompton Res.
The interest in Division Five is the meeting between the bottom two Exeter United and Tops United, the hosts still seeking that first victory.
With Division Six leaders Railway FC in Football Express Cup action at Starcross Dons, which should be another cracker, Otterton could go top if they get the better of Ex Dons at their Stantyway ground.
Just a point separates the top four in Division Seven but all eyes on the top pair City Raiders Res and Uplowmam Athletic, with third place Priory hoping for a draw in that game while they try for maximum points at South Zeal Res.
Division Eight leaders Heavitree United Res could find third place Amory Rovers a harder nut to crack if they dont take them too seriously, and Alphington 3rds are at Lympstone Res who are still unbeaten as well.
