Another Exeter and District League season has come to an end and so how did local teams fare over the course of the eight month campaign?

In the Under-16 Division Two Brixington Blues earned the bragging rights as they finished fourth, four places and 25 points better off than club mates Brixington United.

In Under-15 Division One Exmouth United were relegated, finishing second from bottom with 14 points.

In Under-15 Division Two Brixington Blues finished fifth and Exmouth Town were ninth.

In Under-14 Division Two there were three local sides competing and Budleigh Salterton took the local honours with their second placed finish behind champions Okehampton Argyle. Brixington Blues finished sixth and Exmouth United battled gamely throughout the campaign before finishing bottom.

In Under-13 Division One Exmouth Amateurs finished sixth whilst Brixington Blues ended a tough campaign in bottom spot.

There was a right ding-dong of a battle between the two Brixington teams playing in the Under-12 Division Two with Blues finishing one place and four points above United. When the pair met in the league their matches were tight – they drew 1-1 when Blues were home and United won by the odd goal in five in their ‘home’ game.

Lympstone Rangers finished runners-up, four points behind champions Moors in Under-12 Division Three.

In the Under-11s age group, Brixington Blues were runners up in Division One, finishing five points behind champions Alphington Arrows – the meetings between the two teams being the difference for the Exeter side win them both. In the same section Lympstone Lions finished eighth.

Exmouth United finished third in Under-11 Division Two just five points behind champions St Martins who they did the double over in the league season!
