Brixington Blues face Plymouth opposition in their bid to reach the final of the Wotton Printer Devon Country Under-16 Cup.

In Monday’s semi-final draw the Blues were given home advantage for a meeting with Hooe Rovers who hail from the DJM League Under-16 Howe Division.

The other semi-final awaits the conclusion of the quarter final ties for Colyton and Plymouth Kolts together with Tiverton Town and Kingskerswell Colts.

The four have been unable to play their last eight matches for two successive Sundays owing to the freezing conditions.

The semi-finals are to be played on or before Sunday, March 4.

There is also local interest still in the County Under-14 competition with Topsham Town still having to get through their twice postponed quarter final tie with Mayflower from the DJM League.

If the Tops win that game they will then host another DJM side, Plymouth YMCA. The other semi-final is between North Devon Youth League Torridgeside and Plymouth Kolts from then DJM League.
