Exmouth Town head for Galmpton on Saturday (March 16) looking to move closer to being crowned champions of the South West Peninsula League, Eastern Division.

Richard Pears’ men travel to South Devon unbeaten so far this term in the league campaign and eleven points clear of the field.

Pears is expecting his side to face a tough task, despite the fact that Galmpton were beaten 7-1 at Southern Road as recently as last month.

He says: “The fact we beat them so heavily at our place probably makes this game on Saturday a little tougher than it might have been for they (Galmpton) will be charged up and determined on two fronts. They’ll be looking to get some sort of revenge for the 7-1 and, I have no doubt that they will have, as all sides do we face right now, an extra stride in their step in a bid to become the first team to carry the tag of being first to topple Town!”

Pears went on: “We are fortunate enough to have a near full-strength squad available for the game. That does mean there will be one or two players who will undoubtedly be disappointed not to make the starting eleven. However, as I have said many time this term, the run-in is not about the 11 who start each game, it’s about the wider squad for every one of the lads is going to have a part to play in the last two months of the action – especially if we are to go on and make this currently special season a truly memorable one.”
