Barum back in action after blank weekend

Joseph Bulmer

BARNSTAPLE return to league action this Saturday when they entertain Weston-super-Mare at Pottington.

Last Saturday was a blank one on the fixture list for all league clubs, which Barnstaple didn’t mind at all.

The Chiefs have been carrying a number of injury problems for some time, which were never going to clear up without rest.

Bideford face Torquay Athletic for the first time in a league match in a top-of-the-table tussle in the Western Counties West at King George’s.


Torrington, who were unable to raise a side for their derby friendly with South Molton last Saturday, resume their fight to dodge the drop from the Cornwall & Devon Division with a tricky trip to Falmouth.

South Molton, who sent a Club XV to Withycombe last Saturday and lost 25-24, are at home to North Tawton in Devon One.

Ilfracombe will be looking to get back on track in Devon Two after losing at Dartmouth when they welcome Devonport High School Old Boys to Brimlands.
