East Devon Virtual League latest - matchday eight results, latest league tables and updated current form.

The East Devon Virtual Football League matchday eight also marks the first round of matches in the second half og the campaign.

Honiton Town are now unbeaten in three matches in the East Devon Virtual League Premier Division and the Hippos now sit third in the table following a 1-1draw away at Budleigh Salterton. Feniton sit second after they inflicted more pain on a Seaton Town side that remain the only team in the 24-team three division league yet to win a game. Axminster Town suffered a fourth successive defeat as they were beaten 3-1 at Ottery St Mary. The other top flight game saw leaders Exmouth Town move six points clear of second placed Feniton after completing the double over Beer Albion, beating the Fishermen 3-0 at Furzebrake.

In Division One Lympstone hold a three-point lead at the top of the table after they won 4-2 at Otterton and that means that the Otters have now lost all four of their home games this season. Upottery sit second and are one of four teams that are separated by just a single point in the chase of the table-toppers. Upottery remain unbeaten away from their Glebe Park home after a 3-3 draw at East Budleigh who sit third. Tipton went down 3-0 at Exmouth Spartans and that result means that Tipton slip to third with Spartans up to fourth and, with just four points between Spartans and the Lympets it means that the chase for the Division One top honour looks set to go all the way to the conclusion of the 14 match campaign. Cranbrook are now unbeaten in three matches and are themselves only four points adrift of second place after a 2-1 home win over a Seaton Town side that remain the only team in the East Devon Virtual League yet to register a victory this season!

In Division Two Exmouth Rovers claimed a sixth win in eight outings with a 4-1 home success over a Dunkeswell Rovers side that continue to seek a first away win this season and leaders Millwey Rise also picked up a sixth success of the season as they won 4-2 at a Colyton side that are now third, four points behind Exmouth Rovers. Axmouth United’s recent revival continued as they won 3-1 at Offwell Rangers and Farway United were 5-1 home winners in their meeting with Awliscombe.
