Exmouth Town and Budleigh Salterton both had days to forget on the final match day of 2011 when both suffered disappointing defeats.

The Robins were thumped 5-2 at top six side Alphington where their goals were scored by Mark Lever and Jack Greenslade.

However, it was the Town result that was a bigger surprise as the high flying Southern Road side slumped to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of mid-table Newton Abbot Spurs..

With Liverton winning 2-0 at hope to Galmpton it means that Jody Bolt’s side head into 2012 trailing leaders Liverton by three points and the South Devon side have a game in hand!

Of the five teams in East Devon who play in the South West Peninsula League, only Sidmouth claimed a victory when they defeated ailing Axminster Town 5-1.

There were no New Year’s Eve victory celebrations for Ottery St Mary who were unable to build on their Boxing Day victory – their first of the season – when they were edged out by the odd goal in five at Washbrook Meadow by Exeter Civil Service.
