LYMPSTONE fell to a miserable defeat when beaten 2-0 at home by Exeter Civil Service Reserves on Saturday.The Cliff Fields game had been described by Lympets' boss George Webster as being a six pointer and does the fact that his side lost mean that's it for their survival hopes?Webster says: "It's most certainly not over for us yet. We played with real spirit against Civil Service and, whilst the score line is hugely disappointing, the manner of the performance is most encouraging and had good old lady fortune not deserted us on Saturday then we might well have taken something for the game."The Lympets' battle to avoid the drop from Senior Two has received a huge boost with the news that Carl Wilson, who has always been on the club's books, but been playing his football down the road at Exmouth Town, has decided to give his all for the Lympets' cause and that delights the boss who says: "Carl (Wilson) is quality and it's great for us to have the likes of him wanting to play for us. His mere presence will be a big key as we continue the battle to avoid the drop."On Saturday Lympstone entertain Newtown.
