Ottery St Mary were denied in their efforts to claim their first win of the new Macron League Division Three campaign when a heavy downpour just before kick-off left too much surface water on their Washbrook Meadow pitch to allow them to play visiting Sandford.

Tomorrow (Saturday) the Otters are on their travels with a trip to South Devon to meet WBW (Solicitors) League side Babbacombe Cornithians in a Firewatch Devon Senior Cup tie (2pm).

Corinthians, like the Otters, have played two league games so far this new season and they too have yet to win.

After an opening day 3-3 draw at Buckland Athletic thirds, they were beaten 3-1 at home by Chudleigh Athletic.

Ottery boss Dave Fairweather is without three players for the trip. Dan Jewell, Tom Hayes and Tom Bushby are all unavailable. However, Adam Harris makes a timely return to the side.

Fairweather says: “It’s a good opportunity for us to go an play someone new. It’s a shame we have the three out, but as I always say, when someone is not in the team it’s a great opportunity for another player to make his mark and perhaps take ownership of a shirt!”.
