Otterton spent another Saturday without a game as their scheduled Fresha League Division Six game at Stoke Hill was subjected to a Friday night postponement after all the rain.

This Saturday Otterton host Langdon in the Intermediate Cup area semi-final (2pm).

The match is a repeat of a meeting between the two sides at the same stage of the competition last season.

In that tie the Otters triumphed via a penalty shoot-out after the teams drew 1-1.

This term the Otters have won all 12 home matches they have played.

Otterton have been drawn to play Dawlish in the forthcoming semi-finals of the Football Express Cup.

In what is a tremendous season so far for the club they currently sit four points clear at the top of the table Uplowman Athletic sitting second.

Otterton train at Bicton College on Thursday evenings (7.30pm to 9pm) and new players are always made very welcome.
