Lacemen suffering on-going injury woes

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The Lacemen have endured a tough start to life at the higher level and the 'missing player count' increases by the week with injuries a key element of that.

Honiton suffered a fourth defeat in six Western Counties West outings when beaten 43-14 at third in the table Bideford, writes Justin Nuttall.

Chard were 23-21 winners when they entertained Kingsbridge in a Western Counties West fixture, writes Glynn Hughes.

After last week's defeat in Cornwall, Honiton were keen to get things back on track as they welcomed near neighbours Wellington to Allhallows, writes Justin Nuttall.

Honiton Under 9 Diamonds got off to a flying start at home where they hosted Sidmouth RFC, writes Greg Page-Turner.

Honiton seconds made the long journey to Cornwall on Saturday to take on Wadebridge Camels in a game that has become a regular feature in the fixture list in recent years, writes Jeremy Rice.

Honiton Hawks Under 11's made the short trip to Sidmouth on Sunday morning for their first outing of the season after a month of training.

Honiton Under-7s and 8s enjoyed their first outing of the new season when they took on their counterparts from Sidmouth.

Honiton made the long trip down to Wadebridge Camels to play their first league game of the season in the Cornish county. The Ton kicked off in poor conditions and frankly the weather got progressively wetter as the afternoon went on which played it's part in an error strung game.

Honiton Warriors u14s took on local rivals Exeter Athletic in the first round of the Devon cup running out convincing winners 36-0.

Chard scored seven tries in a splendid 44-26 home win over a Cullompton side that were relegated from South West One last year, writes Glyn Hughes.

On a very windy afternoon on a smaller than usual pitch, the game started off slowly with only two Lovesy penalties separating the two teams in the first 13 minutes to give Honiton a 6-0 lead, writes Jeremy Rice.

Honiton survive Tiverton test

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

On a breezy bright day and a good home crowd Honiton had their second home league game of the season hosting Tiverton. There was a sponsor lunch for In Zan's Finance Tackle company and Giles Bangerger so the scene was set for the encounter.

Honiton Otters went down 52-7 on their visit to Exmouth for the first league game of a new campaign.

Honiton showed real strength of character to secure their first win in the Western Counties West, beating hosts Teignmouth 26-24 thanks to a late Harry Wright try and conversion from Ollie Cave.

The rebranded Honiton Otters kicked off the new season by welcoming Cullompton seconds to Allhallows for a friendly, a phrase not usually associated to these teams meeting, writes Phil Bird.

Honiton RFC U9s seeking new players

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Honiton RFC U9s are keen to recruit some new players.

Honiton Warriors Under-14s made a great start to the new season as they chalked up a 29-22 success over a large Newton Abbot team.

Honiton began life as a Tribute Western Counties West side with a 20-9 defeat at home to St Austell, writes Justin Nuttall.

Chard made a losing start to the new Tribute Western Counties West campaign, but there was plenty in the 20-16 home defeat at the hands of Wellington to give the Chard faithful plenty of optimism about the long season ahead, writes Glyn Hughes.

There is a double-header of action at Honiton RFC on Saturday (September 7) with both the Lacemen's 1st and 2nd XVs in action.

Honiton warmed up for their first game in the Tribute Western Counties (West) campaign this coming Saturday (September 7) with a warm-up match 36-26 success at North Tawton.

Praise has been heaped on Honiton Rugby Club after they attended an event at East Devon District Council (EDDC) to commemorate their historic season.

New Honiton player-coach Alex Brooks has no plans to make wholesale changes to the set-up at Allhallows now he is in overall control, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.
