Beer Albion v Plymouth Hope (Saturday, November 2. 2.15pm)
It's Devon Premier Cup action for Beer Albion as they take on Plymouth Hope at the Furzebrake.
Penalties were needed to separate Beer and Lapford in the second round after a 1-1 draw. It was a similar story for Plymouth Hope who drew 3-3 at Whipton and Pinhoe before winning 4-3 on penalties.
The two meet in the third round on Saturday.
