In terms of where to see local football on the second Saturday of the New Year, with Honiton Town not playing and Budleigh Salterton away to Alphington, the spotlight falls onto the Macron Devon and Exeter League.

It is also East Devon Senior Cup quarter-finals day with Upottery travelling into Exeter to meet Exwick Villa, while Beer Albion host Clyst Valley. The other last eight ties are Witheridge versus Alphington and Newtown versus Heavitree. Back in the Macron nLeague there is an East Devon derby at Feniton where Seaton Town are the visitors.

In Division Two, Axminster Town’s second team have a home game as they host Bow AAc.

In Division Three, all eyes will be on the Washbrook Meadow home of Ottery St Mary to see if they can make it 10 successive wins when they host Tedburn St Mary (3pm).

There’s an East Devon derby at Cloakham Lawns where Millwey Rise entertain Feniton Reserves in a Division Four meeting and, in Division Five, Awliscombe, Cranbrook (playing at Broadclyst) and Upottery Reserves, are all at home, hosting Dunkeswell Rovers, Starcross Generals and Central respectively.
