Barnstaple Town announce pre-season friendlies


BARNSTAPLE Town have announced their pre-season fixtures.

Barum will take on one Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division side, two Toolstation Western League Premier Division teams and four from the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League Premier Division.

They will start preparations for their first season in Division One South and West by hosting Torpoint Athletic on July 8 and then Launceston four days later.

Town’s biggest test will come on July 15, when Southern Premier side Weymouth come to Mill Road. Weymouth finished seventh and four points off a play-off spot.

A trip to Cullompton Rangers on July 26 comes after home games against last season’s opponents Street – the only side to do the double over Barnstaple – and Willand Rovers, who finished sixth.

The pre-season schedule ends on July 29 as Exmouth Town, who finished 12th in the Peninsula League, visit North Devon.

Barnstaple will hope the fixtures set them up nicely for their maiden campaign in Division One South and West – where they will face rivals Bideford and Tiverton Town.

Friday, July 8: Barnstaple Town v Torpoint Athletic (7.45pm)

Tuesday, July 12: Barnstaple Town v Launceston (7.45pm)
