Here we bring you shots from a 2007 meeting between Honiton Town and Barnstaple Town.

The two teams did of course meet in the season that has just been ended prematurely by the on-going Covid-19 crisis.

They met in North Devon in a Devon St Lukes Bowl cup tie that saw the Hippos take the honours after a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

With the 2019/20 season now declared null and void for local teams, it means that Honiton Town will start next season, whenever that does get underway, as a South West Peninsula League premier East side whilst Barum will once again play in the Bet Victor Southern League Division One South.
