There were mixed fortunes for local sides on the first full Saturday of a new Fresha Devon and Exeter League season.
Seaton Town were 3-1 winners over Topsham Town with Dan Norman netting a brace.
There was a welcome return to action after a lengthy injury lay-off for Beer Albion’s Jamie Trewick who was one of four different scorers as the Fishermen beat Thorverton 4-2.
No such joy for Colyton who were thumped 6-1 by a powerful Witheridge Reserve side.
Axmouth United were quickly into gear in their new surroundings of Division Four, cruising to a 7-1 win at home to Newtown Thirds.
The East Devon derby at Upottery where Offwell Rangers were due to visit fell foul of the summer rain and the same soggy fate befell the opening game for Dunkeswell Rovers who had planned to entertain North Tawton.
