Beer Albion’s Fresha League Premier Division match with Honiton at the Furzebrake on Saturday was abandoned midway through the first half, writes Richard Honnor.

The conditions were deemed playable at kick-off, but the wet windy weather closed in rapidly soon after and the referee brought proceedings to a halt on 23 minutes.

At the time of the abandonment, Beer were leading 1-0 thanks to a 17th minute James Melville goal.

The match will now be replayed on a date to be decided.

Next up for the Fishermen is this Saturday’s Fresha League top flight home meeting with Bow AAC when the sponsor will be Jimmy Green Sail Surf and Snow of Fore Street, Beer.
