Beer Albion head for Chard in search of points


Football - Credit: Archant

Beer Albion sit just outside the bottom four in the Fresha League Premier Division.

The Fishermen have not played for a fortnight and indeed, have only played four times since the end of November!

Incredibly, they have only played one away league game since the end of October, that being a 2-1 defeat at Exwick Villa on November 21.

That all means that if the weather clears up sufficiently to allow them to play at Chard Town reserves on Saturday (February 20), it will be something of a novelty – an away league game!

Beer have played exactly half their 28 Fresha League top flight games this term so there is plenty of time for them to ease their way clear of the re-election zone.

You may also want to watch:

They are set to play away on five of the next six match days and could do with adding to their three wins to date in the league, sooner, rather than later.

Meanwhile the Beer Albion Reserves are at Furzebrake on Saturday entertaining Sandford.

The second team have fared just as badly as the senior side in terms of action since the end of November, playing just four times. They have slipped down the table with just one win on their last five games, but they did beat Sandford 2-1 when the teams met in Mid Devon in October.
