Elmore 2-4 Beer Albion 1st’s

Beer 1sts remain in second place in the Devon Football League behind Appledore, with an excellent 4-2 away win at Elmore. This was always going to be a stern test for the Fishermen, with the Eagles having moved down from Step 6 Peninsular League football at the end of last season.


Beer went 2-0 ahead through first half goals from Taylor Rooke and Charlie Ledger. Elmore then clawed two goals back in the second half to even things up, but the game took a dramatic turn with ten minutes remaining, when the Eagles had a player sent off for a second yellow card. The Fishermen took full advantage of the extra man, with further goals from Taylor Rooke and brother Finlay, to seal a dramatic victory.

Next up, Beer 1sts are in Devon Premier Cup action this coming Saturday, with a 1st round home tie against Lee Moor FC from the Plymouth & West Devon League. Kick off is at the earlier time of 2pm, and match sponsor will be Hansfords Funeral Service.

Meanwhile, the Fishermen’s Reserves will head to Dartmoor, for a Division 2 League game at South Zeal United.
