Honiton Town had a productive Easter, banking six points for their two Fresha league games.

On Easter Saturday Town were 3-1 winners at Exeter Civil Service where Tom Genders bagged a brace and Dan Broom rifled home a wonderful free-kick from 25-yards.

Forty eight hours later they were back in action beating Clyst valley 2-1 thanks to a double from Scott Phillips.

Town boss Kev Blackwell said: “Of the two wins the Civil Service performance was more fluent. We were well below our best on Monday, but that speaks volumes for the ability and character in the team, for any side that can play under-par and still win is clearly doing something right!”

The games are coming thick and fast now for Town who were back in action tonight (Wednesday) with a trip to Topsham Town and again on Saturday afternoon when they host Dawlish Town.

After the visit of the South Devon side Town will still have another 14 matches to play in their Division Two campaign.

Blackwell says: “It’s all hands to the pump from now on. Where necessary we will have to patch up players and simply send them back out to perform. It’s going to need plenty of goodwill from players and their families alike, but I am confident we’ll be all right in what look set to be a very hectic end of season period.”
