Feniton were 4-1 winners in the East Devon derby against Beer Albion at Acland Park.

Dave O’Connor, Ben Ede and Phil Everett were amongst the scorers in a win that leaves Mark Kingdon’s side all but assured of the fourth spot in the top flight.

They were winners again on Monday night with an Acland Park success over Heavitree United and are back in action on Thursday when they entertain University who they play again on Saturday morning (11am). The early kick-off is so that many of the Blues players can dash off to change kit and play cricket in the afternoon for Feniton as a new cricket league season gets underway. After the back-to-back University games the Blues complete their Fresha campaign at Heavitree on May 10 and then contest an East Devon Senior Cup semi-final against University Reserves the following day! That all means the Blues boys will face the students no fewer than three times in ten days!

Beer Albion, whose goal in the 4-1 defeat at Feniton came fro James Melville, have three to play, they host champions-elect St Martins at Furzebrake on Saturday then travel to Newtown on Monday before wrapping up their season at Topsham on May 10.

Seaton Town have four games to go in their top flight campaign. They are away at Hatherleigh on Saturday before travelling to Heavitree on bank Holiday Monday. They then entertain Tiverton Town Reserves on May 10 before ending their campaign at home to University on May 14.

Colyton’s 3-2 win at Pinhoe ends any lingering fears of relegation in Division Two. The victory in Exeter lifts the Tanners to ninth in the table.

Upottery’s nervous wait to see if they are to be going up as Division Three champions or runners-up goes on after rivals University won 1-0 at a Hemyock side who slip out of the top three as a result of that defeat. The Students won again last night at Woodbury and need to win three of their last four games – they travel to Newtown (May 1) and Exmouth Amateurs (May 5), host Newtown (May 7) and then end their season at Chulmleigh (May 10).

The miserable end to Axmouth United’s Division Four season continued as they went down by then odd goal in three to Newtown Thirds. That’s a fourth defeat in the last six league outings as United’s bid for promotion – they led the table at the turn of the year – is now dead in the water!

In Division Five there are three East Devon side’s set to drop down a division with Dunkeswell Rovers and the Reserve teams of Beer Albion and Seaton Town occupying the bottom three berths.
