A look at the local football results on the final Saturday of September

Exmouth Town were excellent value for their 3-1 win at Bridgwater Town.

A long kick from goalkeeper Robbie Powell was turned past his own glovesman by a home player and then Jordan Harris doubled the lead.

The Bridgers got one back, but Aaron Denny then swiftly restored the Town two goal advantage and thereafter, just as they had at Street on Wednesday night, Town saw the game out, and in a degree of comfort to complete an excellent four days for the Southern Road men. The game at Bridgwater was watched by a crowd of 238.
