TOPSHAM Town were without a game last weekend with Greenway Lane, Budleigh Salterton, unfit for action.

TOPSHAM Town were without a game last weekend with Greenway Lane, Budleigh Salterton, unfit for action.

It means that another game needs to be factored into what is already a busy end of season programme.

Devon and Exeter League fixtures secretary Pat Leisk is not one to let the grass grow under his feet and earlier this week he released a comprehensive set of fixtures to take the Premier Division to its conclusion on May 19.

The Tops are still to complete the first half of their 30 game season, that arrives, weather permitting, with this coming weekend's Coronation Field meeting with Alphington.

That game with the Alphas sees the start of a run of three successive home games for Danny Carpenter's side, indeed, four of the next five are at home as, after Alphington they host St Martin's and University, then go to Newtown before hosting Willand Rovers in the final game of the month.

April dishes up seven games starting with a trip to Clyst Valley that sees the start of five straight away games.

The Tops face four away from home in nine April days as they go to Willand Rovers, Hatherleigh Town, St Martin's and, finally, Budleigh Salterton.

The month ends with back to back meetings with Heavitree Social United.

May begins with a run of three home games as Wellington, Sidmouth Town and Newtown all visit Coronation Fields before the curtain comes down on what all concerned at Topsham Town hope is a glorious campaign with the May 12 visit to Sidmouth Town.

First up is Saturday's visit of Alphington and, when the sides met in Exeter in late September they played out a goal less draw.

With the only side to sit above the Tops, Thorverton, playing last weekend, winning and opening an eight point gap at the top, there's a real need for Carpenter's side to bank all three points against the Alphas, especially with Thorverton entertaining hapless Otterton at the same time.
