Axminster Town face a run of seven games in 21 days during April in what is a congested end of season for the Tigers.

Town are next in action this coming Saturday (March 17) when they travel to Teignmouth Town. That’s followed, 10 days later, by a midweek home game against Torridgeside before a Good Friday home meeting with Crediton United (7pm) a game that is part of the 2018 Groundhop that will see Tiger Way boosted by the presence of over 100 Groundhoppers.

A busy April begins with a Wednesday (April 4) East Devon derby at Budleigh Salterton and three days later they are at Bovey Tracey before a swift return meeting with Budleigh – this time at Tiger Way on Wednesday, April 11.

There’s a Sunday, April 15, journey to North Devon to face Appledore before title seeking Newton Abbot Spurs are the Wednesday night visitors to Tiger Way on April 18. Three days after that there’s another East Devon derby for the Tigers with a trip to Honiton Town before the curtain comes down on the Axminster Town season with a Wednesday (April 25) home meeting with Ilfracombe Town.
