Beer Albion, in desperate need of league points, travelled to Exeter to face Exwick Villa Reserves, and were just pipped 2-1 in a close match, writes Richard Honnor.

On the previous Saturday, the Fishermen had been well beaten by Villa at the Furzebrake, but this was a much-improved performance and they can count themselves unlucky not to have shared the points.

Beer received an early blow when,, on 10 minutes keeper Steve Jones was forced to go off after injuring a finger. Full-back Shaun Denslow took on the goalkeeping duties and he performed well throughout

Despite the set-back and consequent re-shuffle, Beer started well and took the lead through Callum Gribble, but the home side equalised before half-time and then grabbed the winner in the second half.

Next up is a home game on Saturday (November 28) against Heavitree United (2.15pm).
