Axmouth United were washed out in their bit to further strengthen their grip on top spot in Fresha League Division Four when the rain led to a postponement of their visit to Cheriton Fitzpaine.

The fixture computer has United down to meet the same Mid Devon opposition this time at home on Saturday.

United head into the game having not played a match at their Boshill home since a November 30, 3-2 win over Lords XI.

Since that outing United have played twice and so, with two shut-outs in wins at Winkleigh and Newtown, have not conceded a goal in six weeks!

Cheriton will pitch up at Boshill sitting fourth in the table, a dozen points behind, but having played two games fewer.

After the meeting with the Cherries United host North Tawton before making trips to Exmouth Town Reserves and Bampton.

The game with Cheriton is match number 16 of a 26 game season and victory over then Mid Devon side would bring Division Three action that bit closer to all at Boshill.
