North Devon women’s derby ends in 1-1 stalemate

BIDEFORD and Ilfracombe shared the points in a 1-1 draw in Sunday’s Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Division One derby.

Caroline Parsons opened the scoring for the Robins at the Sports Ground before Hannah Dibble replied for the Bluebirds.

The result leaves Ilfracombe fourth from bottom after picking up just two wins from nine games played this season. Bideford sit one point below their North Devon rivals.

Ilfracombe are without a game this Sunday, while Bideford will travel to fellow strugglers Budleigh Bicton.
