Bideford-based Anchor Chiefs FC are celebrating their first silverware scalp after winning the North Devon Sunday League Division 2 title.

Starting out in the Sunday League four years ago, the Chiefs gained sixth and fourth places in the next two seasons before switching to the North Devon League.

Re-entry to Sunday football this season with a second team has brought them success in a closely contested division, clinching the title with a 3-0 win last week away to Marlboro, two points ahead of Applegate FC.

The Victoria Park based team is managed by James Crump, with the help of Mick Tattersall.
