Picturesque South Moulton in North Devon was the destination for 2008 and the 12th Blue Sox tour. The Friday arrival was the usual getting to know the local area and pre match preparation.
Saturday saw the Blue Sox play South Molton 2nd XV and following a good hard fought match the tourists came away with a win. South Molton were excellent hosts and it was a bonus that two Committee members owned licenced establishments in the town. Tour Court was held in the clubhouse and His Honour Andy Kennedy presided.
The tourists were; Collie Broderick, Paul Cairns, David Chambers, Andy Cowan, Stevie Cowan, Kris Eadie, Richard Eccles, Mark Fisher, Andy Fulton, Maynard Gilmore, Stevie Gilmore, Andy Kennedy, Mark Lewis, Geoff Little, Johnny Little, Stuart Marshall, Roger Martin, John McKevitt, Chris Nelmes, Stevie Oldham, Francois Viljoen, Stuart Wickie and Richard Wilson.
Captain for the match was Roger Martin.
