🗣 | The Gaffer’s thoughts on our first 2018/19 league win against Exmouth Town FC “We worked hard and I felt edged the game, we could have made it 1-0 from a couple of half chances, although when the referee awarded a penalty - thought it summed up our luck. Fortunately, a great save from Josh Oak kept the ball out. “In the last 10 minutes the Exmouth goalkeeper pulled off three outstanding saves, but following good work by Crago, Grant arrived to give the Lambs three points.” - Stuart Henderson, The Gaffer
The support we receive, both locally as well as from other parts of the country, is second to none and tonight it is with great pleasure that we announce our next confirmed player sponsor for 2018/19 🙌🏼 A very big thank you to Calderfields Golf & Country Club, who will be sponsoring Dave Hallett this year.

A familiar face
Guess who’s back?! As we edge closer to the start of the 2018/19 season in the South West Peninsula League (SWPL) Premier, a familiar face is set to return to Langsford Park from this Saturday, when we host Bere Alston for a pre-season friendly.
Stepping back into the number 10 kit, striker Glyn Hobbs is returning to the Sexy Lambs, after a year at Plymouth Parkway FC, where he and the team secured promotion to the Western League. “It might seem bizarre to followers of the SWPL that Tavistock has gone out and signed a proven goal scorer, when we smashed the goal scoring record of the SWPL last season,” Stuart Henderson, Manager of Tavistock AFC First Team, states. “Whatever people’s opinions are of Glyn, there is no doubt he is a talented footballer and at this level he can do things other players can’t. I have no doubt he is the sort of player people like to watch. “He is a character, he is capable of beating two or three players and sticking it in the top corner, but in order to do this he needs to be fit, sharp and motivated to hit targets.” Glyn, who was part of the Tavistock squad who won the league in 2016/17, adds: “Tavistock has always been in my heart and it was difficult to leave in the first place but as they say, blood is thicker than water and I set myself a new challenge, which was winning the double with Plymouth Parkway. Now that challenge is done, I’m moving back to a good friend of mine and a group of lads I highly respect. I’m buzzing for the season to start but first we’ve got to get our Gaffer fighting fit.” To read more about Hobbs’ return, our two new signings and our ambitions for promotion, see our news story: http://tavistockfc.com/2018/07/guess-whos-back/
🗣 | The Gaffer’s thoughts on last night’s pre-season friendly against Plymouth Parkway FC “After two games against pro clubs we were carrying a few injuries and as such had to utilise the young players of the Club, plus a trialist keeper. We faced a full strength Parkway with only five of our first team players. “What transpired filled me with so much optimism for our Club. The youngsters that came into the team played with confidence, resolve and played the Tavi way. They were not over-awed and were a credit, not only to the Club but to themselves. “It was disappointing that we lost they game, as the performance deserved more.” - Ken Ord, Assistant Gaffer 👏🏼🙌🏼 #upthelambs#TeamTavistock ❤️🖤
