Today’s Devon & Exeter League football round-up

CHAGFORD at Newtown seeking a place in the last eight of the East Devon Senior cup, one of the highlights in today’s Devon & Exeter League.

Premier leaders Newtown take time out to face Division One side Chagford in the second round of the East Devon Senior cup this saturday, the prize at stake being a place in the quarter finals.

The Moormen would cause a major upset if they pull off a shock win, but either way the result will complete the quarter finalists.

The cup distraction means Newtowns rivals get a chance to close the gap, and the pick of the Premier matches on offer is at Colyton where Clyst Valley are the guests.

Cronies are hoping Coronation Fields has recovered from the rains as they welcome Feniton, third place Exwick Villa have a big derby clash at Heavitree United, who bady need to find their winning touch again.

However the major derby of the day is at Beer Albion where Furzebrake will be packed for the visit of their biggest foes Seaton Town.

Topsham make the trip to Upottery, Exmouth Town are at Witheridge while Okehampton Argyle make their first ever trip to Lyme Regis.

New Division One leaders Lapford hope to strengthen their position with a win at home to Chard Town, but match of the day is between former leaders Kentisbeare who are at the University.

Tipton St John have the unenviable task of trying to stop runaway Division Two leaders Royal Oak, whose main rivals Whipton & Pinhoe are at their former base Hamlin Lane to tackle Priory.

One other match to catch the eye is at Thorverton where they face Axminster Town.

The University have the chance to go top of Division Three if they can unseat Lympstone, as leaders East Budleigh take time off.

Joint Division Four leaders Alphington are at Winkleigh hoping to match Elmore’s home result against Hemyock.

Newcomers Broadclyst and the Village Inn are in cup action as they meet in the first round of the Geary Cup. The winners will be away to East Budleigh in the next round.
