In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
A few Grecians go to watch town at Southern Rd when there is not a game at SJP.
There is a good setup there & a excellent bar/social club,nice & easy to get to the ground if travelling by train,which is a nice bonus.

Exmouth are playing Plymouth Argyle in the Devon Bowl q/f at home next Wednesday 27th Feb : 7.30pm KO

Sharing a passing interest in Exmouth Town too as my uncle is quite heavily involved with the club.
They are doing well this season and I hope they keep it going and manage to go up, though it looks like an absolute bugger for clubs in these leagues to move up with there usually only being one promotion spot available.

It would be good to see one of my old clubs back in the Western League where they belong (or at least that's where I assume they would go looking at the pyramid).

Really nice club Exmouth one of the better ones I've visited while Groundhopping the last few years.

Coerect me if I'm wrong anyone but I think this is the last season that the winners of that league don't have to take promotion into the western league prem.

Either way Exmouth would hold there owen at the next level anyway I'd imagine.

Not sure..The next level is Southern League D1 West,I suppose it is down to ground grading & finance,perhaps Citizen could fill us in ?
I think the next level up is the Western League Premier Division (Step 5 in the non-league pyramid) and then it would be Southern League D1 West (Step 4).

"Subject to applying, receiving the required ground grading and finishing high enough in the league table, one club from the Peninsula League Premier Division can be promoted to the Western League Premier Division each season."

In any case, it's a long way from the Football League! There's always hope though...

In 1985, Exmouth played a previous incarnation of Fleetwood Town in the FA Vase semi-final, and look where there they are now after serious investment. They just need a generous fan to win the Euromillions. ;)

It's good to see them on the up, a town the size of Exmouth could easily support a club at a much higher level than they play at now.

I see Tavistock who had a number of games in hand and were in 3rd place drew midweek meaning they stay in 3rd place and Exmouth stay 8 clear with 5 games to go I think.

In terms of ground at least they should be fine, according to this article anyway:

"By improving the stand and hospitality area, the club now meet relevant Ground Grading criteria to allow them to progress through the football pyramid."

It’s tight at the top. Tavistock have closed to within 3 points and a game in hand over Exmouth but also have a +7 GD over the leaders.

2 games to go for Exmouth now, too close to call for me. I really hope they manage to hold on and Tavistock slip.
