Budleigh Salterton ladies completed their Westward Developments Devon Women’s League campaign when they lost 1-0 to Halwill, writes SpursTom.

The final scores suggests a mighty close contest took place - and it was certainly that! It was also befitting for a match that would ultimately determine who won, and who finished as runners-up, in the league this season.

The only goal of a close encounter came towards the end with Kelly Gilbert scoring the goal that gave the home team all three points and sealed, for them, the Divisional top honour.

The Robinettes played their part in a fine game and the players and manager Don Carthew were left feeling, post match, that the narrow defeat was harsh on them.

They can draw some comfort from the fact that, during the season-long league campaign, the champions were the only side to get the better of them!

The only other game that the Robinettes failed to win in their 14-game league season was a draw that they were held to on a visit to Plainmoor.

Tonight (Thursday) the Robinettes are back in action when they play in the final of the DCFA Supplementary Cup at Coach Road, Newton Abbot with the opposition being Buckland Athletic Reserves with kick-off being at 7.15pm.
