Ottery St Mary hoping for action at Broadclyst

11:14 06 February 2014

Goal!

Goal!

Archant

Ottery St Mary have more chance than most local football teams of seeing some action this weekend, writes Steve Birley.

With more bad weather forecast the Otters are away at Broadclyst where they have a pitch that tends to stage matches when other pitches around the Fresha League are out of action.

The Otters face a Newtown Thirds team they opened the season with back on August 24 when they were beaten 1-0.

Ottery can boast to being unbeaten since the turn of the year! They have played just twice over the past five weeks, both times drawing Fresha League Division Three matches.

However, the flip side to those draws in their last two games is the statistic that the Otters have not won since a November 9, 2-0 win at Sidmouth Town.

Since that Manstone Road success Ottery have played six times over a 13 week period.

Weather and ground permitting, hopefully the Otters will return to Washbrook Meadow tomorrow evening with three points to ease them away from the bottom two sides in Fresha Division Three.
