2nd XI bid to beat the drop

2nd XI bid to beat the drop – work still to do

The 2nd XI are still in danger of relegation from the Tolchards Devon League B Division East – but only in mathematical terms!

With two games to play (at Sidmouth III and at home to Exeter III) – the team sit 17 points above the drop zone. That all means it needs another 12 points to be banked to avoid the worry of finishing BELOW Exeter and 17 points in the case of finishing above Upottery.

Only basement side Exeter III have lost more games than the 2nd XI this league campaign.

The table – with two games and 40 points to play reads:

Braunton 16 10 5 0 1 0 232
Bideford 16 9 5 0 2 0 221
Seaton 16 8 7 0 1 0 202
Sidmouth 16 7 7 1 1 0 199
Shobrooke 16 7 6 0 3 0 195
Thorverton 16 7 6 0 3 0 188
Bradninch 16 7 8 0 1 0 183
Chudleigh 16 5 8 0 3 0 179
Upottery 16 4 8 1 3 0 166
Exeter 16 5 9 0 2 0 154
