Mixed fortunes for local sides on first full Saturday of new season.

There were mixed fortunes for local sides on the first full Saturday of a new Fresha Devon and Exeter League season.

Seaton Town were 3-1 winners over Topsham Town with Dan Norman netting a brace.

There was a welcome return to action after a lengthy injury lay-off for Beer Albion’s Jamie Trewick who was one of four different scorers as the Fishermen beat Thorverton 4-2.

No such joy for Colyton who were thumped 6-1 by a powerful Witheridge Reserve side.

Axmouth United were quickly into gear in their new surroundings of Division Four, cruising to a 7-1 win at home to Newtown Thirds.
