Barum All Stars defeated a Barnstaple President’s XV 26-10 in a testimonial game for prop Mark Berry.

It was a thank-you to Berry, who has been shoring up one side of the scrum for 18 seasons.

He isn’t about to retire yet, but Barum felt it would be appropriate to play the match while he could still enjoy it.

Among the All Stars of yesteryear were James Lewis, Jamie Arnold, Andrew Swales, Ian Thatcher, Neil Giddy and Mark Woodman.

Kevin Squire, Barum’s former director of rugby, came out of retirement to manage the team.

Dave Kimberley scored the All Stars’ first try.

Swales got the second just before the half-time break from a pushover. Giddy converted.

Six minutes into the second half, referee Paddy Dummett awarded a penalty try, before Barnstaple scored when Iwan Williams ran up the wing.

Richard Kingdom came off the bench to score the All Stars’ fourth and final try.

Barnstaple had the last word with a try from Adam Lloyd six minutes from time.

A crowd of 400 turned up to watch and a collection was made for Devon Air Ambulance.
