The Fresha Devon and Exeter League footballers are going to be busy in the second half of their season.

After another soggy season so far the matches played count against then matches to play shows that there is almost two thirds of the entire season to be played in the second half of the campaign.

With the football season traditionally running from September to April when the cricket kicks in and many football teams lose a significant number of players to the whites and leather ball sport, there are still 1,129 matches to be played throughout the nine division league.

Christmas is traditionally half way with four months gone and four months to play and in the first half of the season 670 games were played.

Most divisions have twice as many games to fit into the final four months as they managed to play in the first four!

Two sides, Exeter-based Dolphin and Mid Devon side Hemyock, who both play in Division Three, have played just eight so far and so have 22 still to negotiate.

Locally Woodbury Reserves still have 20 matches to play.

Of the 121 teams playing across the league only eight have completed half their matches!

Axminster Town Reserves have played more than anyone else, completing 15 of a 24-game programme.

The full break down is;

Premier: (28 games in the season). Most played, Willand (16), Budleigh (14); Most to play, Feniton, St Martins and Morchard Bishop (18).

Division One: (26 games). Most played, Alphington (13); Most to play, Cullompton Rangers (20).

Division Two: (26 games). Most played, Dawlish United (13); Most to play, Honiton Town (21).

Division Three: (30 games). Most played, North Tawton (13); Most to play, Dolphin and Hemyock (22).

Division Four: (24 games). Most played, Axminster Town (12); Most to play Lords XI and Axmouth United (16).

Division Five: (26 games). Most played Sampford Peverell (12), Most to play, St Martin’s (18).

Division Six: (28 games). Most played, Topsham Town 4ths (14), Most to play Exwick Village (21).

Division Seven: (26 games). Most played, Ottery St Mary (14); Most to play, Halwill (20).

Division Eight: (28 games). Most played Colyton (12); Most to play, Woodbury (20).
