After last Saturday’s contrasting fortunes for the Exmouth rugby and football teams it’s home action for both this weekend, writes Stephen Birley.
The Cockles, beaten heavily at Taunton Titans last Saturday, entertain a Bournemouth side who have won both their opening games.
The Imperial Ground action kicks off at 2.30pm.
Exmouth Town begin their challenge for the FA Vase which offers the finalists a memorable day out at Wembley.
Town entertain Toolstation League Premier Division outfit Buckland Athletic at Southern Road (3pm).
Last season’s FA Vase run saw Town put out two Western League sides before they were edged out in the dying moments by Sherborne and Town boss Richard Pears will be keen for his high flying South West Peninsula league side to make further progress this term.
The winners of this tie bank £800 in prize money as well as a place in the next round of the competition.
