Former Ilfracombe boss to take charge before the weekend

Barnstaple Town have confirmed Barry Yeo as their new manager.

The former Ilfracombe Town manager will take charge of the team for the first time on Saturday in the league clash with Calne Town, following Tom Bulley’s departure from the club on Monday.

A club statement said that Yeo brings a ‘wealth of experience and success as a manager in the Western League with Ilfracombe Town.’

Yeo enjoyed five successful years with the Bluebirds before taking a break from football, and will bring Ilfracombe defender Karl Baggaley in as his assistant.
