There was a double dose of defeat for the two Beer Albion sides last weekend.
The Fishermen’s senior side went down 2-0 at Hatherleigh.
That’s a result that leaves Beer deep in trouble at the wrong end of the Fresha League Premier Division table.
What’s more their failure to score means they have now played in 10 games this term when they have been unable to find the back of the opposition net! Just one in the last five games have they scored – that was the two they netted in a clean sheet win over Bow AAC on January 16.
They currently sit third bottom with 11 points from 16 matches. With a dozen still to play they need points – and quickly – and the next three games look to offer them a chance of launching an escape from the bottom three.

Beer Reserves suffered a sixth defeat in eight outings when they lost their Fresha League Division Five home game with mid-table Priory by the odd goal in three.

The Reserves are running out of games to save their current status. They sit in the bottom three and have eight games left in their league campaign.
Like the first team their next three games seem to offer real hope as they travel to mid-table Awliscombe and then face back-to-back meetings with second bottom Halwill.
