SWP East: A busy night of six East Division matches with action at both ends of the table. At the very top, Newton Abbot Spurs completed their season with a 2-1 win away at Honiton Town which means Spurs finish with 77 points on the board and are assured of a top two finish. They will be Champions if St Martins fail to overhaul them with 4 games still to play, the Exminster based club will need at least 10 points and probably all 12 as the goal difference is in Spurs favour. At the opposite end of the table two results had a bearing. Liverton United climbed off the foot of the table with a 2-0 success away at 5th placed Crediton United whilst Galmpton & Roselands fall to bottom after they were beaten 4-0 away at an Alphington side who are almost certain now of avoiding finishing bottom themselves. Elsewhere Axminster Town were another club to complete the season but fell to a 4-1 defeat away at Bovey Tracey and the two Devon Premier Cup finalists played their last games before Thursdays final with mixed results. Torridgeside had a morale boosting 2-1 win at home to the University of Exeter but Teignmouth fell to a 2-5 defeat at home to a Sidmouth Town side finishing the season strongly.
SATURDAY 28th APRIL
SWP East: The Top two just keep on winning and showing no sign of providing a break through in the title race. On Friday night St Martins made it 13 straight wins dating back to last November whilst today Newton Abbot Spurs won a tricky looking away local derby at Teignmouth 2-1 to make it ten straight wins themselves. The maths are, if Spurs win at Honiton on Monday they will set a benchmark of 77 points and St Martins will be on 67 with 4 games to go, and with an inferior goal difference they will almost certainly have to win all 4 to grab the title. Elsewhere Ilfracombe Town carried on their strong end of season form with a 2-0 win at home to Alphington which lifts them a place to 4th whilst Bovey Tracey in 6th had a 4-2 win away at Honiton Town and the University of Exeter in 7th had a narrow 1-0 win at home to Appledore. Two sides further down the table also picked up wins with Sidmouth Town climbing a place after a 3-1 win at home to Galmpton & Roselands and bottom side Liverton United gave themselves hope of getting off the bottom with a 2-1 home win over Torridgeside which leaves the Halford based club just 2 points behind Galmpton.
FRIDAY 27th APRIL
SWP East: St Martins closed the gap on leaders Newton Spurs back to just 4 points with still two games in hand after a 3-1 win away at Crediton United in this weeks Friday night fixture. St Martins will be aware that Spurs will set them a target number of points to overtake them and it will be in St Martins own hands if they are able to collect enough of them in their final four matches.
THURSDAY 26th APRIL
SWP East: Newton Abbot Spurs came from behind to beat the University of Exeter 2-1 in their final home game of the season tonight with the win pushing them 7 points clear of title rivals St Martins.

Leaders Newton Abbot Spurs were forced into a late kick off at Sidmouth Town as the match referee was double booked and was meant to be at both Brixham & Sidmouth – it’s the sort of crazy season where it was bound to happen to someone !
