Argaum Colts on their way to an England ATC trial at Shrewsbury Argaum Colts on their way to an England ATC trial at Shrewsbury

Geoff Baskerville, back row forward, who had been kicking goals for Argaum for some seasons - (and indeed continues to do so, albeit now for the Wanders), became captain, he was a member of a long standing and successful back row of Rogers, Lavis and Baskerville.

The season opened with a good 6-0 win at Truro the team G Gray, B Willcocks, R Dougall, A Blonden, S Leeson, C Muir, C Critten, C Gray, L Marshall, S Body, J Morgan, S Eslick, F Rogers, G Baskerville, C Lewis, followed a pointless draw with Okehampton and wins over Plymouth Combination 12-4, despite losing Ceri Critten in the first half, and Okehampton in the return - 18-4.

South Molton were disposed of in the first round of the Devon Cup and by mid December the club was unbeaten in its last ten games. However, on December 13th they came up against a much improved - and improving - Launceston side, to crash 6-33, after keeping the half time score to 6-11. Crediton - for a change - snuffed out further cup interest to the tune of 0-12, largely due to their ability to kick goals, other results 12-22 against a strong Brixham side and 6-19 (0-0) half time against that other rising Cornish side, Newquay Hornets. Nevertheless the 1st XV record was an encouraging W22, L9, D2, 472-340, but the record of the other sides makes dismal reading.
