Westward Developments Devon Women's League

Bad weather was the big winner in Devon last weekend, with five League matches postponed altogether. Exeter University, having beaten second-placed Central the previous weekend, nailed the scalp of Premier Division leaders Dawlish Town, with a 3-1 scoreline. Uni, with at least three games in hand on all the teams above them, remain in fifth. The other three scheduled matches in the Division were lost to the weather. Division One pace-setters Exeter City Res, on an enforced free weekend because Torridgeside couldn't raise a team, watched their lead cut back to three points, after second-placed Georgeham & Croyde’s 5-1 victory at Rolle Rockets. The victory saw daylight open up behind the North Devon side, with Plymouth Oak Villa Res also forced to sit the weekend out, through an unfit pitch, staying on 21 points. Torquay moved up to third on goal difference after beating mid-table Feniton 4-1. Exmouth Town and Ilfracombe Town switched places in the table after Exmouth came away from Ilfracombe with a 4-2 win, Exmouth moving up to sixth.

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

In a shortened League programme Dawlish Town reclaimed the lead in the Premier Division following their 10-0 defeat of Totnes Town, in which Rachel Edwards led the scoring with a hat-trick. Okehampton Argyle lost a chance to go above Exeter University, who are now absent until January, when they lost 4-2 at North Molton. Molton, following a sticky few weeks when they were twice unable to raise a side, gained revenge for their defeat at the hands of the mid-Devon side earlier in the season. Exeter Rangers recorded their second win of the season, coming away from Galmpton United with a 3-0 victory. Rangers’ only other win so far was also against the Galmpton side, which is firmly rooted to the bottom of the Division. Only one of the four scheduled Division One matches made it to kick-off, with the pitches for the Plymouth Oak Villa Res v Torquay, Exeter City Res v Plymouth University and Torridgeside v Ilfracombe Town matches all being ruled unfit for play. The one remaining game was a one-way affair in which Exmouth Town solidly beat local rivals Rolle Rockets 11-0. Nicola Smallacombe and Sarah Lawler both fired home hat-tricks for Exmouth, with Kath Wright racking up four goals, and Dom Weeks completing the scoring.

Exmouth continue excellent form

Sunday 14th December Exmouth Town Ladies FC 11, Rolle Rockets 0 Exmouth Town Ladies FC continued their run of excellent form, crushing local rivals, Rolle Rockets, 11 – 0. The team has gone from strength to strength in recent weeks, and watching how the Ladies took control of the game against the university side, it seems hard to believe that this is the same team who lost their opening four matches of the season. The supporting crowd was treated to an entertaining game of flowing football. In the second half, in particular, the Ladies built some excellent moves from the back, working the ball through from defence to the on-form Exmouth forwards. Woman of the match, Vicky Marsden, playing out of position as right-back for Exmouth, started many of the moves that ended with the ball in the back of the Rolle Rocket’s net. Nic Smallacombe started the goal rush early in the first half, and went on to score her third hatrick in four games. Kath Wright, Exmouth’s Olympic forward, had another fantastic game up-front, netting 4 goals. Midfielder, Sarah Lawler, also scored a hatrick, her first coming in typical flamboyant fashion by lobbing the keeper from just inside the opposition’s half. Exmouth’s 11 goal victory was rounded off by Dominae Weeks, who pounced on Nic Smallacombe’s cross to stab the ball past the Rolle keeper. Exmouth Town Ladies would like to take this opportunity to wish their sponsors, Exmouth Motor Group, and all their supporters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

The Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Cup finalists were decided at the weekend, with Plymouth Argyle Res achieving their first appearance in a final after defeating Dawlish Town 4-0. Their opponents will be Central FC, who beat Exeter University 4-2. Central will be finalists for the second time in three years, having been defeated by Plymouth Oak Villa in 2002. The Premier Division was restricted to two matches, involving the four bottom teams. Basement side Galmpton United were defeated 3-0 at Totnes Town, who remain two places above them in the League. North Molton played Exeter Rangers for the second week running, and again took all three points, this time in a 2-1 win. The victory guarantees the North Devon team a final position of at least sixth, their current placing. The top two teams in Division One both enjoyed healthy wins against lowlier opposition. Leaders Exeter City Res put seven past Torridgeside without reply, while Georgeham & Croyde defeated Plymouth University 12-0. Georgeham’s Lizzie Baker grabbed a hat-trick, but Jodie Dixon scored an impressive eight, taking her personal total in the last three games to thirteen. Plymouth Oak Villa Res, with two more games to play, moved up to fourth, three points behind Torquay, who have completed their season. Oak Villa’s 8-0 victory against Rolle Rockets featured two goals from Philippa Davey and a double hat-trick from Charlotte Hobbs.

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

The weather put paid to the majority of the Westward Developments Devon Women’s League matches at the weekend, with the Premier Division clash between Plymouth Argyle Res and Exeter University the biggest match to fall victim. Second-placed Dawlish Town beat Exeter Rangers 5-0 at Rangers Newton St Cyres ground, with Laura Gough racking up four of her side’s goals. The result saw Dawlish close the gap on inactive leaders Central FC. The only game to go ahead in Division One resulted in new leaders where victorious Georgeham & Croyde climbed to the top of the table, above Exeter City Res, whose game against Plymouth University was postponed. Georgeham put twelve past Rolle Rockets without reply, Keely Druce and Jodie Dixon leading the scoring with a hat-trick apiece. The win knocks Exeter City off the top of the table for the first time since the opening day of the season. Torridgeside and Ilfracombe Town’s match was also called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

Both scheduled Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Division One games were postponed, with Plymouth University unable to raise a team for the third time this season for their game against Plymouth Oak Villa Res and Rolle Rockets unable to use either pitch available to them for their match against Exeter City Res after 48 hours of serious rain in Devon. The Premier Division match between Exeter University and North Molton did not go ahead, with the students having departed for their second lengthy vacation this season. Plymouth Argyle Res therefore hosted the only Devon League match to go ahead, beating Okehampton Argyle 6-1. Sam Blake led the goal charge with a hat-trick, with Gemma Farley firing home a further two goals, and Kyla Thompson rounding off the scoring. The win changed no placings in the Premier Division, but Argyle Res now have the same number of points as Dawlish Town in second place, including the luxury of a game in hand.

Exeter City Reserves

Congratulations must go to Exeter City Reserves who yesterday became champions of the Devon League Division 1 in their 1st season of existance! A fantastic achievement for a team with an average age of 14/15 and only 3 players with any previous league experience. The championship was taken in style with a 17-0 away win at bottom of the table side Rolle Rockets and with Exeter having one home game remaining. Well done to a great set of players, a fantastic management team and to all those behind the scenes who have made this achievement possible.

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

Premier Division
Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Premier Division leaders Plymouth Argyle Res took ten players to Isca Vikings and the home team made full advantage of their numerical superiority by inflicting a first defeat of the season on the Plymouth side. A double strike from Jodie Mills gave Isca all three points, as they demonstrated their bouncebackability following their extra time FA Cup defeat the previous week. Emma Jenks scored Argyle’s consolation and, despite the defeat, Argyle stay top. The 2-2 draw between Georgeham & Croyde and Dawlish Town saw Georgeham close the gap on the leaders to two points, and Dawlish drop below Isca in the table. Exeter Rangers and Exmouth Town played out a 1-1 draw, with Mandy King on target for Rangers, and Michaela Widlake continuing her scoring ways for Exmouth. Totnes Town’s match with Torquay was postponed when their pitch was placed out of bounds by their landlord following a bit of rain.
Division 1
Scorelines went crazy in Division One with Feniton’s 17-0 defeat of Rolle Rockets, in the students’ first game of the season, leading the charge. Natasha Lovell bagged five for Feniton but Victoria Churchill netted a massive nine goals, taking her straight to the top of the leading scorers table. The margin of victory was enough to put Feniton into second place in the division, sliding above Ilfracombe Town despite Town’s equally impressive 11-0 victory over Liverton United. Jess Pearce and Donna Adams claimed four apiece for Ilfracombe, with Charlotte Butler (2) and Tammy Leworthy rounding off the scoring. Rhianne Parsons and Kate Atkinson both scored twice as Tavistock moved up to fourth with a 7-3 win at Torridgeside, but Barnstaple remained at the top of the table with a 9-0 win over Plymouth University in their first game of the campaign. Barnstaple shared the scoring among five of their number, with Tracey Capner claiming a hat-trick. The Galmpton United-Bideford game was postponed after the Bideford convoy was involved in a collision on the notorious North Devon Link Road, travelling to the match. The most seriously injured player was taken to hospital on a spinal board, although all injured players had been released from hospital by Sunday evening.

Westward Developments Devon Women's League

Match reports, results, tables and fixtures for Westward Developments Devon Women's Premier League and Division 1.

The rain that fell when the gales of November came early put out half of the Westward Developments Devon Women’s League ten-match programme. Premier Division leaders Plymouth Argyle Res were rained off for the second week on the trot, allowing Georgeham & Croyde the opportunity to take over at the top - which they did with a 5-1 defeat of Totnes Town. Totnes took the lead through Jenny Cater, but faded in the second half, as they did last week. Georgeham took the match points and divisional leadership through Erin Starnes, Lizzie Baker, Jodie Dixon, Wendy McQuillan and an own goal.

Isca Vikings tasted League defeat for the first time at the hands of Exeter University in a tight 3-2 game which ultimately went the way of the students. Natalie Romain (2) and Bethan Coupland grabbed the goals for Uni.

Torquay moved above Totnes with their first win of the season, a 4-3 result over Okehampton Argyle, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

The top clash in Division One saw leaders Ilfracombe Town travel to Feniton, who were lying in third place, three points behind the top two. Ilfracombe, defending a 100% record and having scored at least six goals in every game so far, were brought up smartly by goals from Sally Ames (2) and Naomi Holmes, leaving Feniton with a 3-0 win which saw them climb to second on goal difference behind the side they defeated. Barnstaple Town, whose game fell victim to the weather, dropped to third.

The only other game to survive the conditions resulted in a 5-3 win for Torridgeside at Liverton United. Torridgeside celebrated their first win of the season through two from Katie Mason and a Victoria Folland hat-trick. Liverton’s goals came from Roxy Williams (2) and Kerry Knott.
