THE two sides relegated from the Premier Division last season meet at Queens Park on Saturday when Paignton host Plympton.
Plympton were gonners from around the halfway stage in 2015 and it was only a question of time before they could not save themselves.
Paignton, who were the A Division champions in 2014, went into the final month clinging on to hopes of survival, but couldn’t catch Heathcoat and down they went too.
Connor Bryan stood down after a couple of years as captain and has been succeeded by Chris Kelmere junior – a third generation Kelmere at the club.
Dad Chris and grandfather Ken were both 1st XI regulars in their playing days.
Paignton have lost experienced seamer Stepehen George to Brixham and have a new overseas player in Kevin Hinton.
South African Hinton, who is 21, bowls seam-up and bats a bit too for club side United CC in the Eastern Premier League.
Last season he played for Ludlow in the Shropshire County League, taking 56 wickets at an average just below 20. He scored 319 runs too.
Just as important as the ins and outs, Paignton have kept young batsman Dan Wolf, who broke into the Devon side at the end of last season and is still there.
Wolf made 469 runs in the Premier Division and at 17 years old then can consider himself unlucky not to win the young players of they year award.
Wolf won’t have been short of offers over the winter, but has stayed loyal to Paignton.
