The year of 2013 has certainly been a vintage one in terms of Exmouth sport, writes Steve Birley.
The town has quite possibly set a new mark for a Devon town to hold the County Cups in football, rugby and cricket all at the same time!
The silverware collecting began with the football club lifting the Devon Premier Cup, the counties top trophy for non-league teams. That was followed by Exmouth RFC landing the Devon Cup for the third year running and the hat-trick of silverware success came later in the year with Exmouth Cricket Club lifting the Devon Senior Cup.
It did not just stop with the unique hat-trick of cups!
Town also won their League as did the cricketers with their Francis Clark Devon League triumph and the Cockles gained promotion to the National Two (S) division, the highest level that the town of Exmouth has witnessed.
All that makes 2013 a year of unparalleled sporting success in Exmouth.
