It was a case of Black Saturday for Beer Albion Football Club as both their sides suffered defeats in their Macron Devon and Exeter League games, writes Richard Honnor.

In the Premier Division, Beer first team travelled to Witheridge with a strong squad, but suffered their fourth league defeat of this campaign, beaten 5-2.

The Fishermen went a goal behind after 10 minutes, but equalised shortly afterwards when Chris Long capitalised on an under-hit back-pass.

Beer then conceded a second goal just before half-time when they were caught square defensively. The Fishermen were always chasing the game and were caught on the break twice to go 4-1 behind in the second half.

Beer midfielder Simon Smith reduced the arrears towards the end, but Withy restored their three-goal cushion directly from the restart to run out comfortable 5-2 winners.
