THERE was major weather disappointment for the Exmouth Town Reserves on Saturday, writes John Dibsdall.

The Town side, enjoying a hugely successful Devon and Exeter League Division Six campaign, where due to contest a Devon Intermediate Cup area semi-final at Perry Street League side Farway United but the tie was called off owing to a waterlogged pitch at Farway.

It means that the much anticipated top-of-the-table clash with nearest rivals Clyst Valley will not be played this coming weekend and instead Town will try again to negotiate safe passage to the last four of the competition where a meeting with the winners of the Woodbury and Sampford Peverell match, awaits the victors of the game at Farway.

The bad weather meant that just two matches were played in Division Six and both those games involved sides in the lower half of the table so the Town Reserves still hold a two point lead at the top from a Clyst Valley side who have played three games more.
