Barnstaple Rugby Football Club smashed their way to a fantastic double victory this weekend, in an afternoon of excellent sporting prowess sponsored by The Wright Property. Barum Chiefs took a clear win over league champions Redingsians by a whopping 39-7 whilst third team Bucaneers beat Bideford’s second team by an astonishing 29–7.
Praising the players – including our very own Jon Gay embedded deeply in the Bucaneers’ scrum – Barum fan and Commercial Director Tim Hickman commented, “It was a terrific day. Great weather, hellishly huge crowds, and great rugby. Thanks to all the staff at BRFC for a wonderful spread and service. For Barum to beat the top of the Nationa League Three South West with such confidence and brio is mighty. Those men are legends.”
Plumbing engineer and prop Mark Berry was awarded Player of the Year, as nominated by the supporters (above, receiving his reward from Tim). He will be celebrating 18 years on the pitch next week with a testimonial match next Saturday 25th April, 2:30pm.
The Wright Property – on the winning side, in more ways than one!
