Exmouth Town suffered another washout last Saturday as their scheduled game at Bodmin was postponed due to another waterlogged pitch, writes Joh Dibsdall.

This means that their last four away games have now all been cancelled, three to the weather and one as their opponents, Godolphin Atlantic, were involved in a cup-tie. In the same period Town have managed to play both their home games but it does mean they will now have to travel to play midweek games. The Bodmin match has been arranged for Wednesday April 23, with the Elmore game being put back a week to April 30.

Sandwiched between is a trip to Newquay to play Godolphin with Town currently finishing their season home to Plymouth Parkway on May 3.

There was only one game played last Saturday in the SWPL Premier division with Ivybridge winning 3-2 at St. Blazey.

This Saturday Town are home to Bovey Tracey kick off 3pm. When the sides met at the beginning of November Town came from a goal down to win 4-2 with Ian Patchett, James Ansell, Lloyd Gardner and Jamie Moore on the score sheet.

The Moorlanders are eleventh in the table with a decent away record with three wins and three draws from their eight games played.
