Exmouth Town were denied Graddon Vending, Devon Premier Cup action at Upton Athletic owing to vandalised goals!

Exmouth Town had a unique reason for not playing on the penultimate Saturday of February.

Town were due to play in South Devon against Upton Athletic in the last eight of the Graddon Vending Devon premier Cup.

However the home side, who play their matches on the Barton Cricket Ground, woke on Saturday morning to find their goals had been vandalised and the cup tie had to be cancelled!

It means Town must travel again next Saturday (February 25).

That means a new date will have to be found for their South West Peninsula league, Eastern Divison game with Galmpton United.
