The South West Peninsula League has produced the latest statistics with regard to the 'Fair Play' award that is presented at the end of each season to the team who bank the least number of points in each of the three divisions; Premier, East and West.

In the Eastern Division, in terms of the four East Devon-based clubs playing in the division, it is Sidmouth Town, who sit highest.

The Vikings are currently seventh with Budleigh sitting 10th and the other two teams, Axminster Town and Honiton Town sit second bottom and bottom respectively.

The table-toppers of the Fair Play table are the side marooned at the foot of the league table – Liverton!

The South Devon side are one of two Eastern Division sides not to have received a red card to date this season – the other is University, who sit second in the Fair Play table.
