Honiton’s game at Uplyme and Lyme Regis was hit by the weather without a single ball being bowled.

The inactivity helps neither side at different ends of the table.

Uplyme now sit a whopping 40 points off the team currently in the second promotion berth, Shaldon, who they visit this Saturday.

Only a big point’s win would re-kindle promotion hopes.

Honiton’s battle to avoid the drop to the E Division goes on after they got just six points from the abandonment.

The Mountbatten men sit seventh in the section and are just eight points off the drop spots with five to play.

They have their fate very firmly in their own hands for in those last five games they face two of the three teams who sit below them.

They travel to second bottom Countess Wear on Saturday and then host champions-elect Clyst Hydon before a trip to Filleigh followed by a visit to third bottom Halberton and Sampford Peverell on August 24.

The final game of the Honiton league season is home to Shaldon Optimist’s on the final day of the month.
