    WILLAND Rovers earned a much-needed point with a 1-1 draw against Hatherleigh Town in the Premier Division. The North Devon side have been in good form recently so Willand, whose goal came from Aiden Moyle, did well to avoid defeat.

    TIVERTON Town will travel to Stoke Gabriel this Saturday for their Graddon Vending Devon Premier Cup fourth round tie somewhat short of match practise having played just once in November.
