Out of the 51 matches that were scheduled to be played across the nine divisions of the Macron Devon and Exeter League and various cup competitions, just a handful survived and what that means is another round of matches having to be found new dates in what remains of the football season.

There have been 11 Saturdays to date in 2018 and, with fair weather, had all matches been played across the Macron League there would have been some 649 matches played.

However, January and February rain, followed by the early March snow and more rain, has meant just 233 games being played!

The Premier Division has seen the most. Across the 11 weeks, with a full complement of matches, 88 would be played in the top flight. However, there have been just 35 played.

In terms of where the action has been played, the numbers are: Division One, 23 (out of 66 that were scheduled); Division Two, 25 (77); Division Three, 25 (77); Division Four, 27 (66); Division Five, 26 (77); Division Six, 22 (55); Division Seven – which has not seen a single game played in either of the past two match days, 24 (66) and Division Eight, 26 (77).
