bideford afc logoBideford stretched their superb Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West unbeaten run to 20 matches following a 2-1 win at third from bottom Clevedon Town.

Ian Sampson (33 mins) and skipper Matt Hockley (63) scored for Sean Joyce’s Robins as they hit the 70-point mark by notching their 21st league win.

With 10 games remaining Bideford now have a 13-point lead over second placed Hungerford Town, who have two matches in hand on the runaway leaders.

Resurgent Tiverton Town extended their unbeaten league run to nine matches with a 2-0 home win over Bishops Cleeve to edge above their visitors from Gloucestershire to 10th in the 21-team table.

Strike pair Michael Nardiello (48 mins) and Jules Emati-Emati (76) scored for Mark Saunders’ yellows who had not played a league match since their 3-1 home win over Gosport Borough on January 21.

Tiverton may have won by more but for a brilliant save by Villagers keeper James Nortei to spectacularly palm over Andy Taylor’s late goal-bound free kick.
