Budleigh Reserves to face 30 Fresha League Premier Division games in the 2014/15 season

10:49 19 June 2014

From attending the Fresha Devon and Exeter Football League AGM, I understand that six teams have withdrawn, but on the positive side including reserves and third teams, a total of 14 have joined up for the coming season, writes Spurs Tom.

The result is that some teams have unexpectedly been promoted, or avoided relegation. The lower six divisions will each now consist of 14 teams, the first and second, 15 each, and the Premier will start a new campaign with 16 member teams.

The season is due to kick off on August 23. Sadly our club, Budleigh Salterton, will see the Reserve team begin another Fresha League top flight season without a manager unless a replacement can be found following the resignation of Duane Greenslade. Though sad to see him step down, I am not overly surprised, for I felt he did not look so happy towards the end of the season.

He joined the Robins at the start of the 2012-2013 competition, though he was unable to keep them out of the division’s lower region, they were not relegated. With Carl Wilson as his assistant 2013-2014 started brightly, then the long period of inactivity because of bad weather was a major disruption. There followed some indifferent performances, finally finishing ninth in a table of 15 teams. He has brought some bright young prospects to the playing staff for which the club is grateful. We got on well and I would like to add my thanks to those of the club for his very hard graft and attempt to bond a squad together (it has been a struggle at times). We wish him well with good luck for the future.
