Barnstaple Town 4-1 Welton Rovers
Barnstaple recorded yet another convincing win in the Toolstation Western League first division on Saturday.
Welton Rovers were the visitors to Mill Road this weekend and Town ensured their unbeaten record in the league remained intact with a 4-1 win.
Manager Tom Bulley spoke a lot in pre-season about building a team spirit around having ‘local lads’ in the team and every player in the Barnstaple starting XI on Saturday was born in the town.
Aaron Harper-Penman got things going for Town, and Kieran Jewell doubled the lead shortly after half time.
Frontman Ryan Turner, who has impressed his manager since arriving in the summer from Ilfracombe, was also on the scoresheet again for the home side to make it three, and the returning Jed Harper-Penman secured the three points before a consolation goal for th visitors in the closing moments. The win leaves Barnstaple three points behind leaders Bradford Town with a game in hand.
Town travel to Shepton Mallet on Tuesday night.
