SEATON Town have certainly ended the season in good form and they served up a stunning final performance of the campaign to peg back high flying Bow AAC, who they beat 2-1 thanks to goals from Ben Ede and Asa Sandman.

Upottery's brave battle to avoid an instant return to Senior Two ended in disappointment as they had their relegation confirmed with a 3-1 defeat to University. Mark Read was the villager's scorer.

Axminster Town Reserves are just the one win away from yet another promotion. It is all very much part of the bigger picture at Sector Lane that the Tigers second string attain as high a level as possible so as to be able to support the first team in the Peninsula League and Kevin Turner's men look set to play in the 3rd tier of Devon & Exeter League football next season if they can win next Saturday's home game with relegation battling Lapford. Then they will seal the Senior Three runners-up berth and with a place at the higher level next term.

Colyton lost 3-2 to South Zeal in their penultimate game, they completed their season on Monday night at home to Clyst Valley. Regardless of what happened earlier in the week, Colyton will finish the Senior Three season in fifth spot.

Offwell Rangers Reserves completed their Intermediate Four campaign in some style, thumping high-,flying Hemyock 4-2.

Ollie Cramer fired Rangers ahead before the Mid-Devon side hit a quick fire brace to go in 2-1 up.

The second half saw the home side totally dominate the proceedings with Vulnet Ghuri grabbing the individual headlines with a magnificent hat-trick.

First team joint boss Nick Ogden said: "It was a very good all round performance that drew some sour grapes from a disappointed opposition.

"The lads showed that when they are fully committed, both individually and collectively they are a match for any side in this division. Jack Knight was a star amongst stars and, hopefully, they can come back next year and really push on as a team."

Axmouth completed what has been a very disappointing season in senior football with their first campaign at this level ending with relegation back to Intermediate football. They lost their final game 3-1 at home to Dawlish.

Awliscombe drew 3-3 with Alphington in their penultimate Intermediate One and they remain well on course to seal a top six finish.
