Sidmouth bring the curtain down on their league campaign this Saturday (April 18) when they entertain Penryn.

The game at Blackmore Field kicks off at 3pm.

There’s also action this weekend for the Quins who travel to Newton Abbot for their final Devon Merit Table game.

The Colts are at home to Barnstaple Colts, playing at Sidford with a 1.30pm kick off.

Sidmouth U16 entertain Gordano on the Blackmore Field at noon this Saturday.

The Chiefs 1st XV were let down by St Ives last Saturday when the Cornish club pulled out of their trip to the Blackmore.

St Ives, who are already relegated, have been plagued by team-raising issues all season and cried off for that reason.

Sidmouth were told on Friday the Hakes weren’t coming, which was better than being advised on the day of the match.

However, the loss of income from a home 1st XV game through the gate and over the bar is a considerable loss.
