Barnstaple Town Lose to Exmouth Town


Barnstaple Town’s penultimate pre-season friendly ended in defeat against Exmouth Town.

Lee Phillips and Jordan Harris netted the goals for the Macron South West Peninsula League side as they came away from Mill Road with a 2-1 victory.

The visitors made a strong start and their pressure paid off after 12 minutes when Phillips put them ahead.

Barum hauled themselves level 10 minutes later when Ryan Turner made it two in two by chipping the ball over the keeper.

Shaun Copp forced the Exmouth stopper into a smart save before the break, while Steve Oliver was also kept busy throughout.

The winner came with just five minutes left on the clock as Jordan Harris scored for Exmouth.

Barnstaple finish their pre-season at home to North Devon neighbours Appledore on Monday.
