Honiton Town faced their umpteenth postponement when the rain washed out any chance of them staging their Mountbatten Park home meeting with Beacon Knights.

It merely serves to add to the fixture chaos faced by Town boss Kev Blackwell and his team.

They were in action on Monday night with an East Devon derby at home to Sidmouth Town Reserves (check out news of the game at www.midweekherqald.co.uk) and that kick started a sequence of eight games in 16 days!

They play again tonight (Wednesday) when they travel to Pinhoe and on Saturday they go to Chagford.

They then play next Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights and round off a hectic schedule with a May 1 home game with Beacon Knights.

Blackwell’s side will still have another six games to squeeze in after May 1!

The Town chief says: “It’s a tough ask and a real test of our resources – and the patience of family members! This really has been a season like no other and it is extraordinary for us, as a club, to still face a complete half a League season with the campaign already halfway through April.”
