ALTHOUGH the season was cut short, the Tawts enjoyed a good first season in the Cornwall/Devon league especially in the first period.

Historically, having known teams recently promoted from Devon One often go straight back down, the club and committee were delighted to finish at a respectable eighth position and achieve our main goal.

North Tawton started the season with good victories over Tavistock and Topsham but were soon brought back down to earth by Torquay and Truro. At Christmas and the half-way period, Tawts were sitting in fifth place. 

Admittedly the team then started to struggle in the New Year due to the relentless weather and many key injuries.

The team found it hard to play the rugby the way they wanted to. But credit has to go to the lads for sticking with it and battling against every team they faced.

Although the season was ended before Tawts could host their sponsors day, every member, supporter and Vice President is over the moon to finish in a very respectable eighth position.

Work has to be done ahead of next season to make sure the club can thrive in this league but in these uncertain times, next season may not start on time.

Along with the success of the men’s team, the mini’s and junior rugby at the club is thriving with more and more members.

The future looks bright at North Tawton RFC at all levels.

In recent weeks, the men’s team were proud to support Devonport Services RFC big shave, raising money for the NHS towards the Coronavirus pandemic.

More than 10 members took part helping push the total to more than £27,000 on the day, the total now in excess of £30,000.

North Tawton RFC look forward to hosting and welcoming everyone to Taw Meadows next season and hope that everyone keeps safe during these difficult times.
