Exmouth Town take on Hallen today looking for an 11th straight Southern Road sucess and, ahead of the 3pm kick-off there is a lunchtime drinks promotion in the bar.

Today's big match at Southern Road sees a lunchtime drinks promotion runningfrom 12.15pm to 2pm during the TV screening of the lunchtime Premier League meeting between Everton and Chelsea when beer, cider and lager will be on offer atg £2.50 per pint.

As for the big match action on the Southern Road turf (kick-off is ast 3pm), the visitor are Hallen who sit third in the table and have an away record that sits up there with the very best in the division. Mind you, as good as the away record is that Hallen sport, Town go into the contest looking for an 11th straight success in home games this season!

Karl Rickard is unavailable, but his loss is compensated by the fact that Ace High, who missed last Saturday's 2-1 home win over Shepton Mallet and also the 4-1 midweek Les Phillips Cup tie with Parkway, returns having spent the last seven days growing accustomed to married life - the Town striker got married last Saturday - but kept up to speed with events from Southern Road via text messaging!

Speaking ahead of the meeting with Hallen, Town number two Andy Rawlings says: "They [Hallen] have done well away from home this season and the fact they come to us sitting third in the table says it all with regard to how we need to approach the game.

"We'll need to be at our best, but the lads are delivering the goods on a consistent basis at the moment and it is very clear that they are proud of the on-going perfect home record and will no doubt be working extra hard to make sure that, come 5pm on Saturday, that record is intact. However, you get nothing out of a game you put nothing into so I am sure Kev's [own boss Kevin Hill] will be reminding them just before they go out that hard work and patience coupled with the undoubted ability in the squad, will once again serve us well."

HALLEN - their away league results so far this season. Hallen will pitch up at Southern Road to play away game number nine of their Toolstation Western League Premier Division campaign. They have lost just one of those games, going down 1-0 at Bridport on October 19.

They have also drawn one of their away games and that was 2-2 result on their visit to Cadbury Heath. The other six games have all been won as they have won 2-1 at Roman Glass St George, 2-0 at Street, 3-1 at Westbury, 3-0 at Devizes, 4-2 at Clevedon, and, in their most recent away game, 3-2 at Chipping Sodbury Town.

Saturday's game also offers another chance for supporters to help the club with OPERATION EXMOUTH COMMUNITY LARDER - the scheme where the club are, throughout December, collecting for the Exmouth Community Larder (ECL), a food bank run by the Salvation Army.

Martin Cook, who is one of a number of very active Town 'club volunteers' says: "We feel getting involved with the Community Larder is another way for us, as a club, to give something back to the community that is so supportive of us."

Town will have a box placed at the entrance gate for all their December home games and it is hoped that supporters, players, officials, indeed anyone who enters the ground that way will, at some stage during the month, donate items such as non- perishable tinned food and washing items such as toothpaste, shampoo, toilet rolls etc.

Martin adds: "The idea is that we will then take all that we have collected to the Exmouth Community Larder."
