DIVISION Four side Dittisham United make the short trip to Longcross on Friday evening as they take on Division One high-fliers Dartmouth for a place in the second round of the Herald Cup.
The last time United played a competitive match here was in last April's Bill Treeby Cup final where they held prolific Roselands to a goalless draw before losing out in a penalty shoot-out.
Experienced defender and captain Dean Martyn starred in that encounter, and his back line will have to show the same resolve if they are to keep at bay a Dartmouth side who have scored 14 goals in their opening two games.
"The lads are looking forward to the game, especially as many were previous Dartmouth players themselves and are now really enjoying their football at Dittisham," said club secretary Mark Riley.
But he admitted that toppling their neighbours will be a tall order.
"We are expecting a hard game and unfortunately have a few key players out," he said.
"We are realistic that the Herald Cup is one that we are unlikely to build up a big run but this game is special for the proximity and history of the two teams.
"After our clean sheet and 4-0 win over Meadowbrook last weekend, the lads are enjoying their open passing play and we will be looking forward to using this to our advantage on Friday."
There will also be a South Hams derby at Loddiswell on Saturday, as Salcombe Town aim for a Herald Cup upset of their own.
Teign Village made good progress in the competition last season, but have their work cut out for them with a trip to Upton Athletic.
Brixham AFC are already in the hat, following last week's first round victory at Galmpton Reserves.
Brixham took the lead after five minutes through Jay Morgan but despite a few near misses it was Galmpton who equalised through new signing Stuart Pointon who was on hand to convert a free-kick awarded just outside the penalty area.
Defender Simon Armstrong was dismissed for the foul. Scott Dodgson restored Brixham's lead after 30 minutes and added a second five minutes later.
Ten-man Brixham created numerous chances to extend their lead, but Primmer in the Galmpton goal kept the score down.
There was also plenty of County Cup action last weekend, and two of the Premier's most fancied teams progressed into the first round with victories in the preliminaries.
For League champions Buckland Reserves, there was a replay of their opening day fixture at Ipplepen, with Bucks winning 3-1 this time out, Liam McAuley, Josh Webber and Adam Whitmore on target.
With Curtis Booth joining the Watcombe strikeforce, a 6-2 win at Bradworthy was perhaps unsurprising.
Booth scored his first goal for his new club, with Sean Finch helping himself to a hat-trick.
Taimek Wilson's brace completed the rout. Both sides are back in league action this weekend, with Bucks hosting Newton Abbot Spurs Reserves and Watcombe travelling to Ivybridge reserves.
Kingsteignton, who visit Stoke Reserves on Saturday, had the easiest route through the Premier Cup, Morchard Bishop having withdrawn from the Devon & Exeter League.
Kingskerswell & Chelston bowed out 5-2 at home to Beer. They are away at WBB this weekend.
It proved to be a day for the away sides in the Premier Division: Upton secured their first points with Bergin, Walker and Hare netting in a 3-0 win at Ivybridge Reserves.
Stoke Reserves are also up and running after a 3-2 victory at Loddiswell, but Waldon's search for a point continues as they went down 3-2 at home to WBB. Davis, Hutchings and Palmer did the damage for WBB within quarter of an hour, but Briscombe and Pennicott pulled the Clarets right back into it.
In the Devon Senior Cup East Allington are through to Round Two after a 3-1 triumph at Beacon Knights.
Also through are Paignton Villa, Kingsteignton Reserves, Kingskerswell & Chelston Reserves, Buckfastleigh, Stoke Thirds and Buckland Thirds.
In Division One, Tots Reserves finally ended Bovey Reserves' long winning streak with a 2-0 win at the Recreation Ground.
In Division Two, Harbertonford stormed to the top with a 6-0 battering of Brixham Thirds.
In Division Three, Buckland and Milber walloped Liverton Reserves 10-0. Prolific Moore enjoyed a hat-trick and Blowers and Harry netted twice each. The reserve sides of WBB and Loddiswell lead the way after drawing three apiece.
In Division Four, Prestwood scored six in the League's highest scoring match so far this season, Roselands destroying Bovey Thirds 16-1 to go top. Aldous hit an impressive four and Paget and Dunlop hit two each.
Division Five's only perfect record is held by Buckfastleigh Reserves after they won 4-1 at Torbay Police. Mitchell bagged two for Rangers.
Kingsbridge & Kellaton go top in Division Six after a resounding 9-1 triumph at Stoke Fleming & Strete.
