Exmouth Town latest - Town could face seven cup ties in three competitions in 25 days!
PUBLISHED: 12:54 29 August 2019 | UPDATED: 13:24 29 August 2019
Saturday (August 31) sees Exmouth Town host Brislington in an FA Vase tie (3pm).
Indeed, such is the impressive form that Town are showing this season that there is a possibility that each of the next three Saturday's could see the Southern Road men in national competition action!
If successful against Brislington, then the next round of the FA Vase is set for September 14 when Town would be away to the winner's of Saturday's Cadbury Heath versus Longwell Green Sports tie.
Regardless of what happens on Saturday, Town are at home on Tuesday evening in an FA Cup replay with Yate Town and, if successful, Town will play again in the FA Cup next Saturday (September 7) when they would face a trip to Highworth Town (who are at Willand Rovers this coming Saturday for a Southern League South Division One game).
With the 2nd Qualifying Round of the FA Cup set for Saturday, September September 21 and then a successful Town in both competitions would mean putting 'on hold' their Toolstation Western League campaign until Saturday, September 28!
Indeed, it is possible that Town could be involved in seven cup competitions over a period of 25 days - here's hoping the cup runs - on all fronts - are continuing at the end of those 25 days!
Town supporters could look forward to the next few weeks of cup football with -
Saturday August 31 Home Brislington (FA Vase)
Tuesday September 3 Home Yate Town (FA Cup)
Saturday September 7 Away Highworth Town (FA Cup)
Saturday September 14 Away Cadbury Heath or Lonwell Green Sports
Tuesday September 17 Away Almondsbury in the Les Phillips Cup
Saturday September 21 - possibly an FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round tie
Tuesday September 24 Away Cullompton Rangers in the Devon St Lukes Bowl
In the event of Town having their cup runs ended then there would be the following matches -
Saturday September 7 League Away to Shepton Mallet
Saturday September 21 League Away to Cribbs
Saturday September 28 League Home to Cadbury Heath.
Busy - and exciting - times for Town players and supporters alike!
Exmouth Town Reserves were beaten 3-2 when they visited St Martins for a midweek Scott Richards Solicitors Devon League North & East meeting.
Trailing 2-0 at the break, a neat finish from Tim Bradshaw and an Oliver Evans penalty had the Southern Rod men back on level terms only for the home side to take all three points with a last minute winner.
