Beer Albion were most unfortunate not to take anything from their Macron League Premier Division home meeting with high-flying Exmouth Town, writes Mike Adkin.
The Fishermen played really well, dominating possession, pressing high, and allowing Exmouth little space to play their football. However, numerous chances went begging with the Exmouth keeper making some fine saves. Unfortunately player-manager Richard Walker was absent unwell, and his quality and composure in front of goal were sorely missed.
Exmouth had two chances, one in each half, and converted the first of them 15 minutes into the game after Beer had three chances to clear their lines.
Despite the loss, this was yet another excellent all-round performance from the team following on from last week’s narrow cup defeat to Peninsula side Honiton.
A difficult Man of the Match choice for sponsor Jean Bartlett Cottage Holidays, but Martin Adkin stood out with an excellent centre half display.
