Honiton Town will launch their 2020/21 South West Peninsula League Premier East campaign on Saturday, September 5 with a Mountbatten Park home game against Holsworthy.

The fixture will kick-start the new campaign and it promises to be a busy first month of the season for the Hippos are set to play eight league games within the first 24 days of the new term!

After the Holsworthy visit, the Hippos have a midweek game at Cullompton Rangers before a Saturday, September 12 Mountbatten Park meeting with Ilfracombe Town and then a midweek trip to Elmore. That’s followed by a Saturday, September 19 visit to Holsworthy and, two days later, there is a Monday night trip to Crediton United. The final Saturday of September is a home game against the students of Plymouth Marjon and a hectic first month of the new season ends with a September 29 midweek trip to Torrington.

The Hippos’ festive game is a Boxing Day trip to Manstone Lane, Sidmouth, for an East Devon derby.

Honiton Town end the season next Easter when they have back-to-back East Devon derby games with a Good Friday visit from Sidmouth Town followed by an Easter Monday trip Axminster Town to bring the curtain down on another season.

All fixtures are of course subject to being able to go ahead depending on the Cornonavirus pandemic and restrictions that might come into play.
