Robins on a roll

Bideford make it five wins in their last six games

BIDEFORD made it five wins from their last six with a 2-1 victory at Bishops Cleeve on Saturday.

Goals by Jack Furzer and Dave Pearse in either half were enough to overcome the Gloucestershire side and climb to 12th in the Zamaretto South and West table.

The Robins were made to work hard for the win – especially after Kevin Slack pulled a goal back through with 10 minutes to play.

Bideford are finishing their Southern League season with a flourish with wins against Abingdon United, Stourport Swifts, Yate Town and Cinderford Town in recent weeks.

In Thursday night’s re-arranged game at Cinderford, Sean Downing, Richard Groves and Matt Hockley scored the goals in a 3-0 scoreline.

On Saturday, Bideford are at home to Gosport Borough and on Easter Monday, they’ll wrap up their season at Clevedon Town.
