North Devon’s Evo-Stik League South West clubs both have home ties in the first round of the league’s cup competition

Barnstaple Town and Bideford have both been given home fixtures in the first round of the BigFreeBet Challenge Cup.

The competition, which was known simply as the Southern League Challenge Cup last season, will see the first round take place from the week commencing October 2.

Both Barnstaple and Bideford have home ties in the first round of the competition.

Barnstaple will welcome newly-promoted Evo-Stik South Premier side Tiverton Town to Mill Road, who could well have former Barum left wing back Liam Gregory in the side.

Bideford have a home game against Taunton Town.

Barnstaple will be hoping for a better result than Tiverton’s last visit to Mill Road, when they were beaten 4-0 in Barry Yeo and Aaron Harper-Penman’s final home match.

The last time Taunton visited the Sports Ground was on January 2, when two early goals from Jordan Rogers helped Taunton to a 4-2 victory.

Barnstaple Town reached the last eight of the competition last season, knocking Bideford out in the second round on the way there.

The new Evo-Stik League South West season kicks off on August 12.
