Bideford 4-0 AFC Totton
Bideford celebrated their first home league game of the season in style with a convincing 4-0 win over AFC Totton.
The Robins battled to a good away draw at Chesham United in their opener and continued to impress in the Calor Southern League Premier Division on Tuesday night.
Two goals each from outstanding duo Owen Howe and Sean Downing- who provided the assists for Howe’s double – were enough to secure a comfortable victory at the Sports Ground.
Bideford went in at half time with a one-goal advantage courtesy of Howe after good work down the left and a low cross by Downing.
Downing doubled the lead early in the second half before again providing for Howe to make it 3-0 with just over an hour on the clock.
Downing bagged his own brace later on to complete a fine win.
Bideford will hope to continue their positive start to their second season in the Southern League’s top tier when they host newly-promoted Biggleswade Town on Saturday.
