Bideford have announced two more new additions as they prepare for the new Southern League season.

Former Barnstaple Town midfielder George Nancekivell is set to join the Robins from Tiverton Town.

Nancekivell made 31 appearances for the Yellows during the cancelled 2019/20 campaign.

Before signing for the Southern League Premier South side, the 24-year-old spent two seasons with Barum, becoming a key figure in the centre of midfield as well as in defence under Kevin Darch and Dave Griffiths, and Aaron Harper-Penman.

The Robins have also added more firepower to their squad in the form of striker Jordan Annear, who signs from Western League side Tavistock.
