Upottery suffer double dose of frustration

PUBLISHED: 15:16 06 January 2015 | UPDATED: 15:16 06 January 2015

There was more frustration for Upottery as they were forced to sit out a the first Fresha League match day of 2015 with Glebe Park unfit for action and unable to stage the home game with Cullompton Rangers Reserves.

The cancellation denied Dan Prettejohn’s team the opportunity to claim a tenth successive Fresha League Two success and the manager’s frustrations will have been further increased by news that East Devon rivals Colyton were able to play, and win, and it is they who sit top, a dozen points better off than Upottery who have played six games fewer!

The villagers are away on each of the next two Saturday’s. They travel to Topsham Town and then to Sidmouth Town before ending the month at home to Culm United who, to date, are the only side to deny the mal three points in a Fresha league One outing this season. Then Mid Devon side beat Upottery on their own patch on the opening day of the season!
