Ottery St Mary - Tavistock Association 2nd (Scott Richards Solicitors Devon Football League South and West) - Saturday, August 31.

The Otters will be hoping to pick up their first win of the season when Tavistock Reserves come to Washbrook Meadows on Saturday.

Ottery got off the mark on last bank holiday Monday when they earned a 2-2 draw against Newton Abbot Spurs Reserves. That point means they are above Paignton Villa at the bottom of the table after three games.

Tavistock Reserves have a 100% record this campaign, winning against Waldon Athletic, Paignton Saints and Plymouth Argyle Development.

Looking ahead to the game, Otters boss Dave Fairweather said it will be another tough game but one his team will relish.

The game kicks off 3pm on Saturday (August 31) at Washbrook Meadows.

Sidmouth Town 2nd - Seaton Town (Devon and Exeter Football League Premier Division) - Saturday, August 31.

Sidmouth's reserves take on 12th placed Seaton Town on Saturday.

The Vikings' reserves have been struggling this campaign and find themselves bottom of the table after four games.

They've lost all four of their games so far, conceding 21 goals but will be hoping their fortunes change when they face Seaton.

The game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday, August 31, at Manstone Lane.

Bow Amateur Athletic 2nd - Ottery St Mary 2nd (Devon and Exeter Football League Divison Eight) - Saturday, August 31.

Ottery's development squad will be hoping to pick up their first points of this campaign when they travel to Bow Amateur reserves.

The Otters have tasted defeat twice this season starting with a 2-0 home loss against Newton St Cyres last weekend and a midweek 5-4 against Exmouth Town 3rds.

This is their first away game and they will be travelling to the side currently in second place. Bow Amateur can boast a record of one win and a draw and only Exmouth Town 3rds are ahead of them.

The game kicks off at 3pm at Bow Amatuer's ground on Saturday, August 31.
