Woodbury were left frustrated by scheduled opponents Seaton Town Reserves being unable to raise a team for their Fresha League Division Four game.
However, the Seaton ‘no-show’ does mean three more points for the Woods as they close in on promotion.
Woods boss Adam Reid said: “It’s disappointing as, although we get the three points, there’s no goal difference applied. However, the plus side is we get three points without playing and so get more resting time in what is a busy time for the players.”
The Woods were back in action last night when they entertained Heavitree United at the Archery Club (see how they got on and how the result affects the Fresha League Division Four table at www.exmouthjournal.co.uk)
For the Woods the equation is very straight forward. A win last night and again at bottom of the table Seaton Town on Saturday would confirm the club’s promotion.
Woodbury have a full complement to pick from for the two big league games. The only player to miss out is the unfortunate Andy Bennett, who is sidelined for the remainder of the season with medial knee ligament problems.
Meanwhile the Woods now know that their Carlisle Cup semi-final with Combe St Nicholas Reserves will take place on Wednesday, May 8 at Town Lane Woodbury (6.30pm).
The final of the Carlisle Cup is set for Sector Lane, Axminster on May 17. Axmouth United await the winners of the May 8, semi-final.
