Watched by a crowd of 200 spectators, Beer Albion and Seaton Town shared the points in a hard-fought Fresha League Premier Division local derby on bank holiday Monday, writes Richard Honnor.

The Fishermen needed to beat their local rivals to have a chance of moving out of the bottom three and finishing above them in the table, but they now face the possibility of relegation to Division One.

Both sides had opportunities to win the game but a draw was a fair result. As a spectacle the match was disappointing and was not helped by some over-zealous refereeing which prevented the game from flowing!

The contest did not really come to life until the second half. After a dominant spell, the Seasiders took the lead on 70 minutes through a well-directed header by Martin Hancock. But after Beer brought on substitutes James Melville and Pedro Fontes they posed much more of a threat and deservedly equalised on 79 minutes through Kieran Love.

Beer complete their premier league program on Saturday, May 16, with a visit to Topsham Town.
