Barnstaple Reserves up to third

BARNSTAPLE Town Reserves kept the pressure on Devon & Exeter League Division One leaders East Budleigh with a 4-1 win at lowly Halwill on Saturday.

James McDonald opened the scoring in the first half before the hosts pulled level going into the break.

Louis Murrell put Town 2-1 up before team mate Kane Dryden was shown a straight red for swearing.

Despite being down to 10, Barnstaple began playing some of their best football of the match and soon made it 3-1 through Sam Box.

Murrell rounded off the scoring to secure Barum’s third league win on the spin.

Barnstaple travel to second-from-bottom Honiton Town on Saturday, while Witheridge Reserves entertain Chagford.
