Exmouth Town were beaten 1-0 on their Wednesday night visit to Tavistock in what was their second outing of the new South West Peninsula League Premier Division campaign.

In what was a close encounter from start to finish Town spurned the chance to take a first half lead when a penalty from Nathan Cooper came back off the upright.

The only goal of the night came in the fourth minute of added time and, to add insult to injury, the goal was nudged home after a goalmouth scramble.

Town play their first home league game of the new season on Saturday (August 18) when Torpoint Athletic are the visitors to Southern Road for a game that kicks-off at 3pm.

Under-16s and season ticket holders are admitted without charge while the adult entry is £5 and for the Over-65s the entrance fee is £4.

The Southern Road bar and refreshment hut will be open from 2pm.
