Devon Football League - Midweek Round-Up

Ahead of this weekend's fixtures, read the midweek round-up report from the Devon Football League

Three teams share top spot with maximum points in the North & East Division of the Scott Richards Solicitors Devon Football League after the midweek round of fixtures.

Exwick Villa are top on goal difference, one ahead of Teignmouth, who, in turn, are one goal in front of Alphington. Villa have an impressive +9 in the GD column, backing up a superb opening day by defeating Exmouth Town Reserves 3-0 on Wednesday, thanks to goals from Sam Johnson, Harry Walford and Jesse Howe.

The Teigns were ruthless in winning 5-1 at Liverton United, who have endured a tough start, while Alphington recorded a 3-0 triumph at Witheridge. Heavitree United hold fourth position on their own after a 3-1 win over Clyst Valley.

The other midweek results saw Newtown beat the University of Exeter 4-1, Topsham Town produced an excellent display in defeating Budleigh Salterton and there was a 1-1 draw between St Martins and Chudleigh Athletic.

In the South & West Division, Kingsteignton Athletic have made a big early statement, recording three straight wins to open up a five-point lead, although they have played a game more than the chasing pack. The latest win for the Rams was a 5-2 local derby success over Newton Spurs Reserves.

Buckland Athletic Reserves and Waldon Athletic are among the clubs on four points after they shared an entertaining 2-2 draw on Tuesday night, while the Wednesday fixtures in this Division gave us 13 goals from two games.

Plymouth Argyle’s Community Development side just edged past Plympton Athletic in a thrilling encounter that ended 4-3 to the visitors and just as much fun at Lakeside Athletic, where the hosts shared a six-goal cracker with Bere Alston United.
