Fishermen’s dip in form continues at Galmpton

APPLEDORE’S South West Peninsula promotion hopes took another knock with a second successive 1-0 defeat on Saturday.

The Fishermen were beaten by a single Stuart Bowker goal 30 minutes into the game at Galmpton Gents.

Appledore remain third in the Division One (East) table but will need all three points against Exeter University at Marshford this Saturday to ensure they are not overtaken by Galmpton and Stoke Gabriel, who both have games in hand.
