WELL DONE BARNSTAPLE TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB

WELL DONE BARNSTAPLE TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB,

During the course of a year it’s surprising the number of request I receive to search out results, goalscorers, attendance figures etc.

All part of the service provided by club historians.

For me it keeps the memory bank ticking over.  If i can’t find it i make it up ! – only joking.

Plan B  is a visit to the very helpful staff at the Barnstaple Record Office based  on the 2nd floor of the town Library.

Another avenue is a call to my good friend Paul Sanders .  He has collated so much information on Barnstaple Town in his short time with us.

Which brings me back to the headline – Well Done Barnstaple Tow n Football Club

I’ve been following  up a request from Steve Small, historian for Clevedon Town FC, regarding past results between our two clubs. He wanted to congratulate Barnstaple Town on listing club historian details on the club website.  From what he said very few non-league clubs provide this service.

I’m going to be in demand now !

Maybe i should put in for a pay rise !
