Following exits in their cup competitions, all that remains to be played for this season by the Budleigh Salterton ladies is their Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Division One campaign, writes SpursTom.

In their league programme, the month of November has been a good one. It began with an away fixture at Plainmoor that the Robinettes won 2-0 thanks to goals from Amy Salter and Hayley E Worsley.

A week later the Robinettes entertained the team that many consider to be big rivals in terms of landing the divisional top honour – Seaton Town. This was a close encounter, but one that saw the Robinettes prevail thanks to a 2-1 score line in which their goals were scored by Amy Salter and Ben Long.

The game last week should have been a top-of-table clash with Plymouth side Signal Box Oak Villa, but an injury to Emma H Worsley led to an ambulance being called and the contest was abandoned. The latest league table shows Signal Box Oak Villa with 15 points from five games, the same as the Budleigh ladies, with Signal Box having a slightly better goal difference of 18 to the 15 sported by the Robinettes.

Also well in the mix are Seaton Town with a dozen points from five games and a goal difference of 22 – so it’s clearly all very tight between the three teams in the race for the title! The Robinettes are in action this coming Sunday (December 2) when they visit an improving Axminster Town.
