WHILST Ilsington Villa are one of the three teams that have claimed their divisional titles at the time of writing, a 1-1 draw with Kingsteignton Athletic on Tuesday 21 puts the latter out of contention for second place in the Premier Division.

Promotion was still up for grabs on the final Saturday of the season and Morley Rangers claimed second place ahead of Buckfastleigh Rangers thanks to a 6-2 win away at Chudleigh. Goal difference was the only thing that could separate them at the end of it all.

Elsewhere, Newton Abbot 66 won 3-1 at already Watts Blake Bearne and Kingsteignton dropped points again, losing 4-2 against a resurgent Elburton Villa.

In Division One, Paignton Saints returned to pole position last week after a one-sided affair against Buckfastleigh Rangers seconds. The 6-0 scoreline doesn’t tell the full story here though as the bottom of the league side were able to keep Saints at bay for the entire first half.

Newton Abbot Spurs’ reserves have since claimed the title though, even if it isn’t in the way they would have liked (more on that in the Spurs report).

Ivybridge Town seconds were unable to bounce back instantly from relegation and instead had to settle for fourth place, but they certainly allowed the division to be as competitive as possible alongside Totnes and Dartington.

In Division Three, Ashburton wrapped up their season with a 3-nil home win versus Teign Village which puts them joint top with Watcombe Wanderers reserves. The only issue here though is that Watcombe still have two league games to come after their Ronald Cup success, so any points will do the job there.

Teign Village meanwhile were relegated as a result of this defeat, going down alongside Kingsbridge and Kellaton United.

Liverton United were the other team competing with Ashburton at the top of the tree and it is the former who has secured promotion. A 3-1 win over South Brent followed by a walkover against Newton 66 has guaranteed them second spot, and they have the slightest chance at the title still- they need Watcombe to lose the final two games by a combined 16 goals.

Finally, to Division Four, which has gone down to the wire with the champions yet to be decided. Elburton Villa have two fixtures to fulfil against local rival Drake as well as facing Watcombe’s thirds in the space of just three days.

Anything could happen between Tuesday 28 and Thursday 30, not only could Drake hand Liverton the title at the expense of their rivals, but they could even leapfrog Villa into second themselves also. A Watcombe win in the other outing would also see them escape a bottom-two finish so everything truly is still to play for.
