The Robins beat the league's other Robins, Evesham United, 3-1 at the Sports Ground in their final game of the campaign.

Billy Tucker gave Bideford an early lead when he recovered from a miscued shot to poke the ball into the net.

James Mayne doubled the hosts' lead 10 mintues into the second half, heading in from a Tucker corner to claim his first goal of the season. The centre-back claimed his second and Bideford's third in similar fashion three minutes from time, shortly after Steve Davies had pulled one back for Evesham with a superb chip over Joe Moore.

The win means Bideford finish the season ninth in Division One South, having won their final three games over a span of eight days.

Evesham began the game well and their best chance fell to Adam Page on five minutes. Page dispossessed Ian Sampson and ran through on goal only to send his shot over the crossbar.

Bideford were in the lead just three minutes later after Ryan Turner worked his way into the box on the left and squared the ball for Tucker. Despite miscuing his first effort, Tucker recovered quickly to prod the bouncing ball past Andy Hannah and into the roof of the net.

From there on in Bideford were more or less in control. Turner, Tucker and Joel Randall kept the Evesham defence on their toes and caused a few problems in the final third without finding the back of the net.

A charging run from Randall was cut out by Joe Turley before the winger could find Turner in the box.

Turner had a couple of chances himself, the first a shot just wide of goal after a header skidded through to him and the second a stinging shot that forced a low save from Andy Hannah.

The visitors started the second half brightly, but Bideford managed to double their lead 10 minutes after the restart after soaking up some pressure.

Mayne had a free run at the back post to head Tucker's corner into the top corner for his first goal of the season.

Kane Simpson looked to have pulled a goal back for Evesham midway through the second half when he got in behind Mayne and squeezed a shot through Joe Moore's legs, but Ben Palmer recovered to sweep the ball off the line and out for a throw.

Davies did get Evesham on the board with five minutes of the match remaining with a well-taken finish, beating Mayne for pace down the field before sending a delicate chip over Moore which nestled inside the far post.

Mayne got his second and Bideford's third just two minutes later though, this time heading across goal from Tucker's corner to get the ball in, despite the best efforts of the Evesham defence.
