Exmouth Town FC extended their winning sequence to six when they overcame Portland United 2-0 in the Buildbase FA Vase on Saturday, writes John Dibsdall.  Another clean sheet and it is now over eight hours of football since Town last conceded a goal. From winning the ball back from the kick-off, Town were on the front foot and could have gone ahead with less than a minute played. Good link-up play between Ace High and Jordan Harris set Aarron Denny clear, but his strong shot was well-saved by the visiting ‘keeper. Portland, who came into this game on the back of 5-2 and 12-2…

A third goal was no more than their dominance deserved and it came from the head of Ace High six minutes into the second half. The home side hit back with a…

Exmouth Town FC saw their journey in the FA Cup finally come to an end after their fourth game against higher league opposition became one hurdle too many, writes John Dibsdall.  But Town can hold their heads up high after a battling second half performance at Highworth Town that had the travelling support of around 100 truly believing that the impossible would become the possible. I’m not sure why, but Town were clearly off their game in the first half and conceded goals in the sixth and 28th minutes. The pitch at Highworth seemed to slope in different directions, but…
