Results - let alone reports - are hard to come by, mostly narrow defeats, 5-6 Bere Alston, 3-8 RN Depot, 3-6 Kingsbridge (Wakeham's try), Plympton 5-7 (Ward try, Beer conversion), North Tawton 0-11 and, at the end of the year Buckfastleigh 0-0 played in a deluge.

1926 is somewhat more informative, if not more successful. 0-6 at Plympton. Bracken at full back was very resourceful and Pearce at half back always a danger. 3-6 v RN Depot - on the run of play Argaum were unlucky to lose. Against a resuscitated YMCA 3-3 at Higher St Budeaux - Argaum were awarded a try in the last few minutes - Buckfastleigh 3 Argaum 3 (Ward try) Services A 0-0 Beer throughout had a very fine game, and yet another draw, YMCA once again 6-6 tries by Thomas and Daly; Beer Bracken and Wakeham deserving mention; also deserving mention the first reports of the halfback combination of Leslie Paul and Bill Westlake - both products of Queens College Taunton - as was also George Wakeham - a combination to continue with some success for several seasons to come. Mention of the social side emerged when the season wound up with a very successful Whist drive and dance at the Revel Assembly Rooms the lady supporters providing the refreshments for the large number present. A more - for Argaum - ominous note 'New Rugby Club formed, the OPMs RFC have arranged fixtures for season 1926-7'. the Hon. Treasurer, chief instigator and founder member - George Wakeham.
