There is midweek pre-season football three of our East Devon teams over the next two days.
Tonight (Tuesday), Axminster Town play their third warm-up game when they entertain Southern League Division One side Willand Rovers at Tiger Way (7.30pm).
The Tigers have so far lost 3-2 to Wincanton Town and 2-1 to Wellington. Both games, against Western League opposition, were close encounters and left one Town supporter saying: “I was very impressed with what I saw. Clearly there is still a bit of tinkering for the new manager to do, but, based on what I have seen over the first two games things look very, very encouraging.”
There’s action tomorrow (Wednesday) when there’s an East Devon derby at Southern Road, Exmouth with Town taking on Sidmouth Town. The kick-off time is 7.30pm and the Southern Road gates will be open from 6.30pm.
Admission to the meeting with Sidmouth Town is; Adults £5; O65s and U18s £3 and Under-16s will be admitted free.
