Tipton St John will not be sorry to see the back of 2014.

They had to wait until March 8 to finally get their first action of the year owing to all the bad weather the county was experiencing at the start of 2014. The final game of 2013 for Tipton was a December 14 trip to Elmore and they then had to wait almost three months before a March 8, 2-1 home win over Beacon Knights.

That victory was to be one of just four in 28 matches in league and cup during in the year. They also recorded a 3-1 home success over Newton Poppleford towards the end of last season and this term they have won 2-0 at Clyst Valley and 2-1 at home to Hemyock.

Two other games ended all square, but 22 others were lost. In the year Tipton scored 31 times and shipped no fewer than 89.

In terms of away league success, the last time Tipton enjoyed a Fresha League win on opposition turf was back on October 26, 2013 and a 3-1 win at Beacon Knights.
