Honiton Town have more reason that most to rue what was a second successive Saturday wash-out across the Fresha League on the final match day of 2012.

If the weather relents to allow Town to host Colaton Raleigh in a Division Two contest on Saturday it will be their first league outing in seven long weeks!

The last time that Kev Blackwell’s team played a league game was back on November 17 when they won 4-3 at Clyst Valley Reserves.

Since then they have played just once, to make Devon Senior Cup progress with a win in Plymouth that sets them up with a quarter final tie at Colaton Raleigh next month.

It is set to be a busy second half of the season for Blackwell and his team.

With the festive period traditionally the half-way stage of the season Town had completed just five of their 26 Division Two games.

That leaves them to negotiate 21 league games plus cup ties in the final 17 weeks of the season.

Currently their campaign ends on April 27 with a Mountbatten Park meeting with Pinhoe.
