July 02, 2016: North Area Stars Honoured

With the Devon FA AGM being held in Barnstaple, it was only fitting that the six nominees for the Long Service Awards came from the North Devon area.

Alan Stevens (Barnstaple Ammies), Dave Langford (Hartland), Michael Brennan (Appledore), Gina Maynard (SAS), Ian Hart (Referee) and Peter Evans (Coaching & League Administration) were the worthy recipients due to their respective long and tireless dedication to volunteering. The picture below shows them along with other winners from the County. Barnstaple Ability Counts FC were the nomination for the North Area Charlesworthy Trophy, unfortunately no one from the club could be there to receive a cheque for £250, certificate and the Kivell Cup.

Winchester City were the latest team to inflict a defeat on Barum and leave Mill Road with all three points as they ran out 3-1 winners. The reverse means Barry Yeo's men have only won one of their last 10 Division One South and West games and are just five points off the bottom two – after Wantage Town took a point from their game at AFC Totton. Having lost their last three by just a solitary goal,...

BIDEFORD'S Southern League play-off hopes suffered a setback this afternoon as they were beaten at North Leigh. The Robins made the long trip to Oxfordshire on the back of an encouraging 1-1 draw at title-challenging Tiverton Town on Tuesday, but they couldn't build on that as they went down 2-1 to Leigh. Bideford's last visit to Eynsham Park ended with a 2-1 victory in 2012, but it was roles reversed today as North Leigh inflicted just a third defeat in 10 in the league for Sean Joyce's...

Tiverton Town 1-1 Bideford: Southern League match report

KEVIN Squire took on the penalty duties as Bideford drew 1-1 with Tiverton Town in tonight's Devon derby. After Billy Tucker missed from the spot in Saturday's home defeat to Mangotsfield United, it was the veteran striker who stepped up when the Robins were awarded a penalty for handball. And Squire found the net to quickly cancel out Levi Landricombe's opener for the home side and eventually earn a point from the Evo-Stik League Southern clash. Bideford had the better chances in the...
