Dear Friends and Supporters,
It appears that the announcement made recently by Barnstaple Town Football Club that we had failed an inspection for a grading to E that would be needed if we were looking for promotion was somewhat premature, it having been based on the report we were given by the inspectors.
I have had confirmation from the Ground Grading Co-ordinator that the Club has been granted the higher grade. Whilst they take any inspectors report into consideration they also look at what the Club had done to bring the grounds up to the standard needed to achieve the grading. I am pleased to say that with the help of some very enthusiastic people we did what we needed to do. I thank them for their hard work.
Now with the team playing fantastic football we must all get behind them and urge them on to achieve the promotion they desire. To have been promoted last season and to being in the position that we are now, this close to the end of another season has to one of the greatest achievements in Barnstaple Towns Football history.
