The wintry weather put paid to Beer Albion's planned Macron Permier Division match at Exmouth Town Reserves on Saturday, writes Mike Adkin. And despite some lengthy clearing work, even the normally reliable Furzebrake succumbed to the snow and ice, with the Fishermen's Reserves having to postpone the visit of Newton St Cyres. There was, however, an excellent turnout at the home pitch for the morning working party, continuing work replacing pitchside fencing and concrete path laying, and with the Chairman honing his culinary skills with the provision of bacon and sausage baps, along with copious volumes of tea and coffee.
This coming Saturday sees the Fisherman's Firsts welcome Witheridge Reserves to the Furzebrake for a Premier League encounter, kick off 3 pm, with the match sponsored by Jimmy Green Marine. Beer currently lie 9th in the league, one place behind the visitors, after finally being awarded the three points for late abandoned game against Exmouth Reserves in December. Beer Reserves visit Otterton for a Division 3 encounter.
