With a couple of results still to come in Division 1, Axe Cliff A look to be favourites to take second spot, but a final week trip to Golden Hind B won’t make their task easy.

At the bottom, Harbour A host Kings & Queens in a relegation decider, with Kings & Queens needing two points from the match to stay up.

The Division 2 title is a straight battle between Gerrard Arms B and New Inn Flyers; the latter team’s victory at Royal Clarence B has guaranteed that these two teams will take the promotion spots.

At the bottom, Kingfisher Rebels and Kings Jesters look favourite to finish in the relegation spots, but the possibility of only one team being relegated means there’s plenty still to play for.

With Harbour Fourplay’s surprise loss to Harbour Sea, the Division 3 title looks to be heading for already-promoted Royal Clarence A, who need at most a point from their final game to be crowned champions.

Third place may well also be promoted; Golden Wonders cannot finish worse than third, but both Kings Cavaliers and Seaton Town FC B can still tie with them.

Results:

Division 1: Kings & Queens 2 Golden Hind B 3; Ship Castaways 3 Harbour A 2; Whitford Warriors 4 Kings Arms A 1; Axe Cliff A 3 Beer Club 2; Colyton FC 5 Lamb (mutton) 0.

Division 2: Kingfisher A 3 Kingfisher Rebels 2; Royal Clarence B 2 New Inn Flyers 3; Kings Jesters v Seaton Town FC A postponed.

Division 3: Harbour Sea 3 Royal Clarence A 2; Seaton Town FC B 3 Kings Cavaliers 2; Golden Wonders 3 Lamb Visitors 2; Lamb High Flyers 4 Red Balls 1; Harbour Fourplay 1 Harbour Sea 4.
