Tiverton have had to forfeit their Devon Trophy quarter final against Torbay.
Tournament rules state that the match had to take place before 31 December. Torbay, the hosts for the quarter-final, were only able to supply one date for the fixture, which unfortunately was a day when most of Tiverton's players were unavailable. While this is disappointing for the club, it was felt that it would be better to withdraw now rather than postpone after Torbay had made their arrangements for the pitch and match umpires.
Torbay now progress to the semi-finals, where they will play the winners of the tie between Okehampton and Isca B, which has been scheduled for early January. The club would like to wish the best of luck to Torbay and the remaining teams in the competition.
