SOLO EAGLES CARRY THE COUNTY CUPS BANNER FOR THE LEAGUE
Quarter finals day in the County competitions
Elmore Reserve will carry our banner by themselves for saturdays Devon Premier cup quarter finals. The eagles face former league members Newtown of the Devon Football League and will be seeking a big upset to make it into the last four.
It is also quarter final day in the Devon Senior & Intermediate cups and we are guaranteed at least two places in the Senior competition. Bow AAC are at home to AFC Exe while Newton St Cyres host Teignmouth Reserves.
Home advantage has also favoured us with Seaton Town tackling Beesands Rovers of the South Devon League, and the Universitys Third XI facing Harbertonford also of the SDFL.
Either City Raiders who meet Bickleigh will be sure of a place in the last four of the Intermediate cup, but the league will hope Dolton Rangers can get through at home to Lifton once of our league and former winners in 1971. Dolton are hoping this will be third time lucky as they chase a trophy they have twice before lost in the final.
Crediton United Res are hopeful that home advantage will come to their aid when they welcome Premier leaders Alphington to Lords Meadow just a week after losing 2-1 to them.
The Alphas go into the match 15 points clear of rivals Exeter University Res who travel to Sidmouth Town Res, and Kentisbeare who have a really tough date at Clyst Valley.
Lyme Regis plan to get their challenge back on track in the return against Okehampton Argyle Res where they suffered a surprise 3-1 defeat just last saturday,
Two big matches in Division One with leaders Upottery at home to Chard Town Res, and rivals Winkleigh at Lympstone who have recently managed to get vital points on board.
One result to watch out for in Intermediate football is the Division Five meeting between Amory Green Rovers who have just won for the first time and newcomers Teign Village. A lot at stake for both teams.
