‘Snow play’ for Exmouth Town teams on first Saturday of March

PUBLISHED: 13:57 02 March 2018

Our picture shows the changing conditions since early December that has led to so many football matches being called off. First it was for waterlogged surfaces and now, in the first week of March, it's snow bound surfaces!

Archant

Both Exmouth Town senior teams are set to sit out the first Saturday of March.

After what has seemed week up week of cancellations owing to waterlogged surfaces, Exmouth Town’s South West Peninsula League, Premier Division game at table-topping, and free-scoring Plymouth Parkway has fallen foul of a snow bound pitch in Plymouth.

That’s also the case back at Southern Road with the Town Reserves Macron League top flight game at home to Newtown also being postponed.

The Town senior team have only played twice in the 12 weeks since December 9 while the Town second team have only played four games since the middle of November.

There remain nine weeks in the ‘regular’ football season running from now until, and including, the first Saturday in May (May 5).

Town’s first team, who have played 27 games so far, are better off than most, having only 11 games left to play in their league campaign. However, Bodmin Town, who also play in the Premier Division, have twice as many games left and so must pack 22 league games into the final nine weeks of the season!

For the Town Reserves and their Macron League campaign, only table-topping Elmore have played fewer than them – the Tiverton-based side have played 14 games while Town have completed exactly half their programme (15 matches) and so have 15 left in what remains of the season.
