Almondsbury UWE 2-4 Barnstaple Town
Barnstaple Town got back to winning ways in the FA Vase with a 4-2 win over Almondsbury UWE on Saturday.
Barnstaple had to battle in difficult conditions, with the pitch becoming heavy after a torrential downpour.
Billy Tucker, who returned to the side in Town’s 5-1 defeat at Wells City last Tuesday, was instrumental again as he scored twice to set up his side’s win.
Tom Marsh also bagged a brace for Barnstaple as they ended a run of three straight defeats in fine style.
Barnstaple manager Tom Bulley was happy to see his side get back on track, and posted on Twitter after the match: ‘Nothing better than that winning feeling.’
The win puts Barnstaple through to the second round of the FA Vase and will give them confidence ahead of another away league clash with Chippenham Park on Saturday.
