Exmouth at Amersham in National Three (SW) action


Exmouth were forced to rearrange yet another National Three (SW) League game when the rain of Thursday and Friday put paid to the Cockles Imperial Ground meeting with Weston-super-Mare was called off after a Saturday morning pitch inspection by a local referee.

The game, between two of the three sides battling for the National Three promotion berths with leaders London Irish Amateurs, will now go head to head this Saturday.

The Cockles had been due to host Newton Abbot in the semi-final of the County Cup this coming weekend to see which of the pair will make the final and a meeting with Barnstaple.

That cup tie will now have to be found a new slot in a season that has precious few weeks remaining!

For this Saturday’s re-arranged bug league encounter with Weston-super-Mare the Cockles are offering a match day luncheon special.

There’s a 2-course lunch that follows a 12.30pm reception, plus a free pint of beer of glass of wine and cheese and biscuits prior to watching the game. At £12 per person that represents very good value given the importance of the fixture and the fact that the winners will be in pole position to go on and finish in a top two berth which would open the possibility of playing a level higher in the rugby pyramid next season.

For more information on the luncheon offer email Sue Stone at events@exmouthrugby.co.uk or phone 07788 563659.

After Saturday’s game the Cockles will have three more league games to play with table topping London Irish Wild Geese at the Imperial Ground on Saturday, April 6.

That’s followed by the final away game of the league campaign on Saturday, April 13 at Maidenhead before the curtain comes down on the home league season with a Saturday, April 20 meeting with Malvern.
