Exmouth Town’s ‘Bring a Kid’ promotion which was blown away by Storm Dennis last weekend, will now be run this coming Saturday (February 22) when Town are in home Toolstation Western League Premier action against Wellington.

The promotion means that an adult attending the game with an Under-16 will pay half the usual entry fee - £3.

Gates will open on Saturday at 1.30pm and kick-off is at 3pm.

The other entry fees are: adults, £6; concessions £4 and Under-16s will be admitted free as will season ticket holders and, as is always the case with Town home games, members of the armed forces upon presentation of military ID.

● Town are also in midweek action next week when they travel to Bet Victor Southern League Divsion One South side Willand Rovers on Wednesday night (February 26) in the quarter-finals of the Devon St Lukes Bowl. The winners of this tie will then be away to Bovey Tracey in the semi-finals.

● Looking further ahead to the March fixtures, Town are currently facing nine games in just 25 March days starting with the March 3, trip to Shepton Mallet and ending with the March 28, visit to Westbury United.

As things stand, its then another eight fixtures in April for Town!

● Town thirds, who have only played twice since January 11, are in action this Saturday (February 22) when they entertain Bow AAC Reserves at the Archery Club pitches on Withycombe Common (3pm).
