Uplyme get runners up in first season

Exmouth Rovers are runners up in Division Nine


The Division Five title between current leaders Exeter University and AFC Exe remains on the shelf until the college return this coming weekend to complete their two outstanding matches both against Amory Green Rovers. So the focus fell on Division Six where newcomers Uplyme secured second place with a dramatic 4-3 victory at Witheridge. The home side did their best to upset the day but Uplyme held firm. Charle Rook with two of the Withy goals, the other from Lee Cole.
Kenn Valley United finished their season on a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Sandford and only a Phil White penalty gave retiring manager Ricky Bourne something to be cheered by.
Devon Yeoman beat Falcons 2-1 in the other game played.

Thorverton made sure of runners up spot in Division Seven after a convincing 6-1 win at home to Beacon Knights. Darren Osmand and Bailey Carbines both scoring twice, Will Hawkins and Toby Jefferson with singles. George Dennis was the Knights scorer in their closing match.

No matches played in Division Eight but Exmouth Rovers clinched second place in Division Nine winning 6-1 at Hemyock. The home goal came via Kurtis Robbins, and good news about referee Dave Pointing who has recovered well after being taken to hospital after the match but diagnosed with a stomach upset. Dave expects to be at the LMC meeting on monday night.

Lots of action in the League cup Two tournament but nothing yet resolved. In Group A saw AFC Morchard Bishop and Whipton & Pinhoe Res share a 1-1 draw, which rules Morchard out of the reckoning. Chris Andrews with the home goal, Ben Leighton with the reply.
Group B saw another 1-1 draw between leaders Cranbrook United and Ex Dons, both teams still in with a shout.
Cheriton Fitzpaine beat Priory 1-0 in Group C and a draw when they meet again would be enough for Cheriton to go through. Priory will need to win.
Whipton & Pinhoe are Group D winners after they whacked Otterton 8-1. Dale Evans with the Otters consolation.
