OLD Robins will be flexing their wings again at Bideford Sports Ground when an Ex-Bideford FC select squad take on the promotion-winning Southern League squad.
The match will take place on the evening of Tuesday, August 7, as a testimonial for Bideford first team manager Sean Joyce, who has been with the club for 14 years.
The Bideford first team will take on a select/invitation squad of former Bideford FC players who have featured in recent Western League title winning sides. They will be chosen from a potential squad of 25-30 players who have enjoyed distinguished playing careers at the club, many of them with substantial appearance records.
The select squad will be captained by former long-serving defender Ian Down.
It is intended to rotate both teams at half-time to ensure that everyone, including Sean Joyce, has playing time on the pitch.
The match is sponsored by Bideford AFC Supporters Club and kicks off at 8pm to allow travelling time for more distant players. Admission is £5 for adults, with accompanied children going in free.
