Barnstaple Town got back to winning ways in style in Evo-Stik South West last night (Tuesday).

Barum beat Paulton Rovers 4-0 at Mill Road to pick up their first win in seven games in all competitions.

The home side took the lead after 18 minutes through Lloyd Gardener.

Jordan Charran added eight minutes before the break to get his third goal in three league games.

There were just three minutes of the 90 remaining when Jordan Walton got Barnstaple’s third.

Substitute Fletcher Williams, who came on for Karl Rickard in the second half, wrapped things up in stoppage time.

The win keeps them 19th in League South West, but Richard Pears’ side now have the same amount of points as Rovers and Cinderford Town in the two places above them.
