The rotten weather we have all endured this winter means that most football clubs in the semi-professional game will cram virtually half a season of fixtures into the next three months.

Willand Rovers definitely fall into that category in the Division One South of the Southern League and they will have eyes on a push for the play-offs after an impressive 2-1 win over Mousehole on Saturday.

Douglas Camilo and Owen Howe scored the goals for Willand, who travel to mid-table Larkhall Athletic this weekend and sit just four points outside the play-off picture with two games in hand on fifth-placed Evesham United.

Bideford had a weekend off but still hold prime position of all Devon clubs in this division. The Robins, who are managed by former Torquay United midfielder Sean Joyce, sit fourth in the table and have two games in hand on leaders Frome Town.

Tavistock are in a position of mid-table flux, a few wins from their games in hand could give the Lambs a sniff of the play-offs but a bad run brings the danger of being sucked down the table.

Tavvy travelled to Bishops Cleeve on the weekend and snatched victory from a thrilling game. Trailing 1-0 at half-time, another former Torquay star, Liam Prynn, levelled for Tavvy, who then took the lead through Edward Harrison.

Bishops fought back to lead 3-2 with nine minutes remaining but the Lambs had more in the tank, Daniel Koita equalising from a corner and Tavvy pinched victory with an emphatic strike from Alex Battle in stoppage time. After the midweek trip to Yate Town, Tavvy host struggling Paulton Rovers on Saturday.

Exmouth Town are the Devon club with the most work to do in this division, as they still need to close the gap of five points on Paulton to drag themselves out of the relegation slot. Exmouth are still yet to win at home this season after a 2-1 reverse to Yate.

In the league above, Tiverton Town are also fighting for survival and they edged out of the bottom four with a superb 4-2 win over Poole Town. Jack Rice-Lethaby and Joe Parker gave Tivvy the perfect start, leading 2-0 after nine minutes, and further goals from Jevan Wright and Joe Parker confirmed the win.

Dorchester Town are one point and one place behind Tivvy following their 0-0 draw at home to Plymouth Parkway, who have recovered from a sticky start to the season to hold a solid mid-table position.

In the Toolstation Western League, Helston Athletic have opened up a four-point lead at the top after an impressive 2-0 win at Buckland Athletic. Clevedon Town and Bridgwater United are the closest pursuers but Falmouth and Barnstaple could be the teams to watch, as they both have games in hand on the leaders.

Goals from Stu Bowker and Brodie Montague secured a fine 2-0 win for Barum at Torpoint and they face the same opponent in the reverse tie on Saturday. Brixham also made a weekend trip over the Tamar, winning 3-1 at Saltash United, Josh Parry, Aaron Wellington and Sean Adderley scoring the goals for the Fishermen. Harry Taffs scored the only goal for Ilfracombe in their win over St Blazey.

In the South West Peninsula League, Ivybridge Town extended their lead at the top to a massive 20 points after a 2-0 win at Honiton Town, Luke Forward and Connor Rush scoring for the Ivies.

Axminster Town were the only other side in the top seven to record a win, Craig Veal notching the only goal at Torridgeside and even that came deep into stoppage time. Liam Martin provided some North Devon cheer with a hat-trick for Torrington, who won 5-0 at lowly Dartmouth.

Teignmouth recorded an excellent 3-2 win at fourth-placed Cullompton Rangers, while Bovey Tracey and Bridport shared a six-goal cracker in the game of the day in the SWPL.
