Beer Albion 2, Budleigh Salterton 2

The Fishermen twice led in a game that eventually slipped away for them and they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

James Melville and Chris Long, the latter from the penalty spot, had seen Albion lead 1-0 and 2-1.

Beer boss Phil Crabb lamented: “Its points dropped, and not for the first time. Unfortunately it was again a case of some silly goals being conceded and we really do need to stop giving away soft goals and then giving ourselves too much to do.”

It’s just one win in eleven now for the Fishermen and this Saturday they face the team sitting above everybody else in the Fresha league top flight Hatherleigh.

The free-scoring North Devon side beat Seaton Town 5-0 last weekend and have now notched 46 goals in a dozen league starts!

The one advantage that Beer do have about this weekend’s meeting is that it is at their Furzebrake home where they have lost just twice this term.

Crabb says: “I am sure the players will, rise to the occasion and Furzebrake is a difficult place to come to for any side, especially when our supporters get vocal!”

Richard Walker, who has been out for some time with injury is hoping to make a return in the game with Hatherleigh.
