Callum Pillman, 21, of Heathfield Road, East the Water, Bideford, and Shaun Taylor, aged 29, of Crosslands, Barnstaple, denied attempted murder and robbery when they appeared at Exeter Crown Court.  

The men are accused of attacking and robbing Marcus Goold of a mobile phone at Bicclescombe Park, Ilfracombe, on the night of Saturday, January 23, this year.
