Exmouth Town moved eleven points clear at the top of the South West Peninsula League table with a 3-0 victory over Totnes and Dartington at Southern Road, writes Steve Birley.

Town boss Richard Pears was delighted with his team’s performance.

He said: “After the midweek draw with Teignmouth when I felt we looked a little tired. That’s something I expected given the run of midweek games we have had to endure recently. Before the Totnes game I told the lads that this was to put one big shift so we could then have a week off to rest up ready for the forthcoming big matches.”

He continued: “So to get the performance we got was very pleasing. A third clean sheet in four games, our fifth at home this term, adds weight to the feeling that we have strength in all areas with this team. Dan (Boere) is scoring a lot of goals, but he’d be the first to say that it’s a team thing and right now everybody is playing their part at our club.”

On Saturday Town travel to Galmpton before locking horns yet again with Stoke Gabriel next Wednesday evening in the semi-final of the Devon Premier Cup.

Pears says: “One game at a time. We may have walloped Galmpton as recently as last month, but I fancy that will only serve to make them more determined. What’s more we will not have any thoughts towards Stoke Gabriel and next Wednesday night until after Saturday’s game is done and dusted.”
