SEATON Town's season continues to be one of continuous success as the side took a break from their 100% start to the Devon and Exeter League Division One campaign to contest a Jail Ale Devon Senior Cup third round tie with North Devon League side Shebbear United.

Such is the confidence flowing through the Town ranks that they won the game 2-0 - and with something to spare as well.

Josh French and Cameron Vere scored the goals for Town, who now switch their attention back to the league and take their perfect start to Morchard Bishop.

Town go into the game a point behind leaders Heavitree, who have played two games more.

There was no cup joy for Honiton Town who slipped out of the Jail Ale Cup, beaten 1-0 at home by Harbertonford.

On Saturday, Town travel across East Devon to Axminster Town Reserves.

The miserable start that Dunkeswell Rovers have made to the new season continued as they went out of the Devon Intermediate Cup, beaten 4-0 by Dawlish Town 3rds.

Away from the various county cup games, Feniton were beaten once again in the top flight of the Devon and Exeter Premier Division.

The 2-1 defeat at Newtown leaves the Blues rooted in the bottom two of the top flight, having won just one of their nine outings so far.

Next up is an Acland Park visit by Heavitree Social United, who have been beaten just once this term to date.

It's a similar tale of woe at Upottery where the village side are now rock bottom of the Second Division and have still to win a game after seven engagements to date.

Their latest defeat was a 3-0 loss at the hands of a Dawlish side who were winning their first game of the season!

Next up for Upottery is a very swift return meting with Dawlish and, unless a home win can be recorded this weekend, then it may well be the start of a long hard winter for the side.

Beer Albion continue to impress in Division One with their latest success a 3-0 home win over East Budleigh, thanks to goals from Mark Anning, John Cooper and James Melville.

Beer are up to fourth in the table and face the same opposition this coming weekend when they make the trip along the coast to East Budleigh.

Colyton stay third in Division Three after a 3-1 win at Exeter side Crescent.

The win means that Keith Somer's side have now won five and lost just one of their league games to date.

Next up is Saturday's short trip to meet Sidmouth Town Reserves.

The Vikings have a very similar record to Colyton's - they have won four and lost just the one. Manstone Road could well serve up a contest well worth watching this weekend.

Feniton Reserves lost their Division Five game at home to Woodbury, beaten 4-2.

Seven games in and the Blues have yet to record a victory. This weekend they entertain Cullompton Rangers 3rds at Acland Park.

Beer Albion Reserves made it a great weekend for the Furzebrake club as they won their Division Six game at University 3-2.

That was a second win of the league season for the Fishermen, who have home advantage for this weekend's meeting with UAU Exeter.

Honiton Town Reserves went down 4-0 at Beacon Knights in their latest Division Seven engagement and, in the basement Division, Feniton 3rds netted three times at home to Seaton Town 3rds, only to lose 5-3!

This coming weekend Honiton's second string host Dawlish whilst Feniton go to Tedburn St Mary and Seaton 3rds travel to Colyton Reserves for an East Devon derby.
