Honiton Town thirds and Millwey Rise set for busy end of season’s

With just one game in the Macron Devon and Exeter League Premier Division beating the weather on the third Saturday matchday of 2018, it means more frustration for footballers as the soggy start to the New Year continues.

The Macron League top flight would normally stage 24 matches across three weekends, but it’s been just 11 games played since the turn of the year.

Indeed, of the 11 games played, Exwick Villa have staged three of them on their new all-weather G3 surface in Exeter and Beer Albion’s usually weather-resistant Furzebrake home has hosted two of them with six other clubs – Cronies, Exmouth Town Reserves, Heavitree United, Newtown, Upottery and Witheridge – staging the other matches.

Interestingly, all but two of the 11 games played so far have produced home wins. The exceptions have been a 4-0 success for all-conquering Elmore on the G3 pitch at Exwick and a January 13, 3-3 draw at Beer where Seaton Town were the opposition.

In terms of the state of play with regard to the remainder of the current football season there are still 15 Saturday match days to go until, and including, the first Saturday in May (May 5).


You may also want to watch:


Upottery still have 16 top flight matches to play so, if there are many more wet Saturday’s then they are going to have a number of midweek fixtures to squeeze into the end of their campaign.

Millwey Rise, in Division Five, have only played nine of their 26 games season and so they still have 17 fixtures to play in their league campaign.

If Millwey Rise are looking set for a busy time then that is certainly the case for the players at Honiton Town thirds who, in their Macron League Division Eight campaign, still have 19 games to play! That already means three or four midweek dates, and that is before the undoubted loss of a couple more Saturday match days between now and the first weekend of May.
