For the want of football…

WITH local football wiped out completely by the weather today (Saturday), the emphasis now turns to the possibility of getting back on the park in February.

For Lyme Regis first team, it could mean they will relinquish their second place in Division One of the Devon & Exeter League, tenuously occupied during these past few weeks without a game.

The Seasiders have the long journey to Chagford and must return with three points if they are to stay in touch with the front runners, led by Exeter University 2nds.

Hot on their tail, the much fancied Colyton (currently in third place but with games in hand over Lyme) meet fourth placed Lapford.

The two others in the chasing pack, Cullompton Rangers and Chard Town Reserves meet each other so there could well be a change in the order at the top of the division by 4.45 pm next Saturday (February 3rd)

Lyme Regis Reserves will be looking to retain their second place in Division Five at home to Ilminster Town Reserves, a match they should win on previous league form.

In the Perry Street League, Uplyme face a tough encounter when they travel to Division One leaders Halstock, Charmouth are away to Netherbury Reserves in Division Two whilst Lyme Regis Reserves travel third placed Merriott Dynamos in Division Three.
