TWO MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS COULD BE RESOLVED THIS SATURDAY

SATURDAY APRIL 27

The Jurassic coast is the backdrop on saturday for Witheridge to celebrate the Division Three championship if they win at Davey Fort against Lyme Regis Res. Their only two rivals Broadclyst and Heavitree United do battle at Broadclyst but whatever the outcome victory for Withy will do the trick.

Division Seven leaders Uplowman Athletic could also be champions tomorrow if they win at Tedburn St Mary Res and their only two challengers University 8ths and City Raiders Res drop points. The University host Priory and Raiders receive Phoenix United.

Premier Division leaders Alphington can take out two of the only four teams who can overhaul them if they win their match at home to Lyme Regis first XI. However the most intriguing clash is at Lapford where they welcome second place Kentisbeare and defeat for either side is unthinkable.
Upottery still with hopes of a top three finish are home to Sidmouth Town Res.
Winkleigh still with eight matches remaining are at the University Res, Sandford face Colyton and the bottom two Elmore Res and Okehampton Res meet up again at Horsdon Park.

St Martins need victory at home to Dawlish United in their last match to guarantee at least the runners up slot in Division One. Current leaders Wellington Res have their fingers crossed for an upset, but current title favourites Exeter University 3rds still with six matches remaining have work to do at Hatherleigh Town.

Division Two leaders Central wind up their home season against Farway United, while the two teams that could still catch them Exeter University 4ths and Westexe Park Rangers cannot afford to drop points. The students are home to Exmouth Spartans, and Westexe welcome Tedburn St Mary.

Half a dozen teams could still be Division Four champions but leading the way are Bickleigh who make the trip to Chagford.
The buzzards main challengers are probably the Heart of Oak who are away at Colyton Res, and both Honiton Town Res and the University 6ths who clash at Mountbatten Park.

Neither of the top two in Division Five are in action which gives Upottery Res the chance to cut their lead, but anything less than victory at Exeter United will take them out of the equation.

In Division Six Otterton still on cloud nine after booking their place in the Football Express Cup final have another huge match when they welcome leaders Railway FC. Victory for either side is paramount.
Ex Dons and Bampton meet up at Withycombe knowing they cannot afford to slip up to stay in the race.

Only one match in Division Eight to complete the saturday programme and that between Farway Res and Bow Res but that has now been postponed as Farway cannot field a side.
