Seaton Town have endured mixed fortunes over the past week with two wins and a defeat.
They had back to back wins, with a midweek Morrison Bell 4-2 win at Newton Poppleford followed by Saturday’s 4-3 home win over Hatherleigh in a Macron League Premier Division meeting, before a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Upottery in another league game played on Easter Monday.
The league win over Hatherleigh was achieved thanks to goals from Jacob Rowe, Seth Wakley, Adam Whitehouse and James Hill and gave the team just a second win of the top flight league season.
On Easter Monday they met an Upottery side that had not played for just over five weeks, but, despite goals from James Hill and Seth Wakely, lost 4-2.
In terms of looking to avoid a bottom three finish all is certainly not yet lost for Town, but this Saturday has certainly thrown up one of those classic ‘must win’ games.
Town are currently sitting second bottom sitting on 10 points from 19 games, four points better off than basement side Topsham Town, who have played three games fewer, and one behind Hatherleigh Town, who have played two games fewer. Fourth bottom are Feniton, who Seaton Town travel to face at Acland Park on Saturday (April 7). Feniton will start the game sitting seven points better off than Seaton, but they have played a game more so a Town win and the ‘great escape’ would certainly be on. In what will be their final 10 games after the Feniton match, Town do still have two meetings with Topsham Town as well as a home game against an Exmouth Town Reserve side, who may yet be dragged into the battle to avoid finishing in one of the three re-election places. Town are next in home league action on Wednesday, April 11, when they host Beer Albion at Colyford Road (6.30pm).
