WINKS HOPING TO CLOSE THE GAP AGAIN
SATURDAYS BIG MATCHES NOVEMBER 25
Winkleigh get the chance to rejoin Alphington as Premier Division leaders this weekend if they get the better of struggling Okehampton Argyle Res at Simmons Park. The Alphas are at Lyme Regis in an East Devon Senior cup tie, so for Winkleigh this is an opportunity to keep the pressure on.
Kentisbeare also have the incentive to stay close to the top two when they host Crediton United Res.
Upottery welcome the University Res and Colyton are at home to Sandford, both hosts needing to win to stay with the leading group.
The other top match is at Lapford where they welcome a much improved Sidmouth Town Res.
Division One leaders St Martins have a big game against a Newtown Res they will not want to drop points against as their closest rivals Exeter University 3rds, currently unbeaten, start as favourites at home to Wellington Res.
The other big game in this division is at Teignmouth Res where the fourth place team take on third place East Budleigh.
Central defend their position as joint Division Two leaders at home to Feniton Res, with rivals Farway United looking to have a far easier task at home to a Tedburn St Mary outfit still without a win.
Again another big clash at Westexe Park Rangers against Clyst Valley Res, 3rd v 4th.
The star game in Division Three is at Budleigh Salterton Res who as leaders are hoping to end the 100% record of visiting Broadclyst and Alphington Res are at home to Witheridge, both teams protecting an unbeaten record.
The top four in Division Four are also entwined with Bickleigh tackling third place Heart of Oak, and second place Honiton Town Res in a big derby against fourth place Uplyme.
Division Five leaders Starcross Dons are due to start the second half of their season when they trek out East to take on Millwey Rise. If the Dons win they could be 15 points clear if the University 7ths slip up at Whipton & Pinhoe, and St Martins Res lose to new boys Tops United.
Big game in Division Six is leaders 100% Railway FC at home to closest challengers Whipton & Pinhoe Res, and keep an eye out for Ex Dons who might end the day in the top three if they get maximum points at Beacon Knights.
The Universitys 8th team get the chance to end Division Seven leaders Uplowman Athletic’s unbeaten record, while in Division Eight leaders Alphington 3rds plan to reach the halfway mark of their season with victory at Starcross Dons Res and their 100% record intact.
There are several other intriguing cup ties to look out for as well. Clyst Valley face Newton St Cyres in the East Devon Senior cup, City Raiders Res and Upottery Res finally hope to resolve their Devon Intermediate cup clash after two postponements, and Awliscombe United are at home to Otterton in the Football Express Cup.
