Billy Tucker and Tom Marsh scored twice each to put Barnstaple Town into the second round of the FA Carlsberg Vase.
After three successive defeats in the Toolstation Western League, Barnstaple bounced back in today’s knockout tie with a 4-2 win away to fellow First Division side Almondsbury UWE.
While Marsh’s two were his first goals of the season, fellow striker Tucker took his tally for the campaign to 13, making him Town’s top scorer ahead of Ryan Turner on 12.
Barnstaple will hope the Vase win can rub off on their league form when they travel to Chippenham Park next weekend.
It was a good afternoon for Barnstaple in the league with two of the three teams above them dropping points. Second-placed Cribbs drew 1-1 at home to Chard Town and third-placed Wellington lost 2-1 at Calne Town.
Leaders Bradford Town were in FA Vase action, losing 3-2 at home to AFC Porchester.
The draw for the second round of the FA Vase will be made on Monday.
