Bideford suffered a 55-0 home defeat by unbeaten Weston in their final South West One game of the season.

Weston's only blemish on the record was a 16-all draw at Drybrook. They won every other game they played.

Bideford were able to compete in the forwards and felt a 19-0 half-time deficit was respectable enough.

The only time the home side looked like scoring was when No.8 Dean Folland dropped the ball with the line ahead.

Weston had too much gas in the tank for Bideford behind the scrum and ran in six second-half tries to underline their superiority.

"Weston have players on full-time contracts and there would be something wrong if they were not winning against sides like ourselves who are strictly amateur," said Bideford's team manager Bradley Goaman.
