Exmouth will travel fewer miles in pursuit of Francis Clark Devon League Premier Division points than six other top flights sides next summer.

The Maer men make their second shortest trip of the campaign on match day two when they visit Sidmouth, this seven days after they begin the season at home to Bradninch.

The shortest trip is of course the local derby game with Budleigh at Ottermouth which next season takes place on July 27.

The longest trip that Exmouth face is the 136 mile round-trip to Instow to face North Devon, a journey they make on Saturday, June 22.

In all the Maer men will travel 568.36, significantly fewer than North Devon who must travel 1,097 miles whilst the least travelling is done by Exeter who will travel 441 miles.

The full list of Exmouth games is:
