After their excellent start to the Calor League season with a draw at Chesham United and win over AFC Totton, Bideford can look for ward to a busy weekend.
The Robins face unfamiliar opponents when Biggleswade Town visit the Sports Ground tomorrow.
The Bedfordshire club, promoted to the Premier Division as Division One Central play-off winners, have made a solid start with draws against Cambridge City and Bashley.
On Monday, Bideford will turn their attentions to Truro City and a first meeting with the Cornish club for five years.
Truro have also made an unbeaten start with 2-2 draws against Bashley and Bedford Town.
Bideford will hope for a repeat of their previous performance at Treyew Road, a stunning 6-2 win in the semi-final of the Les Phillips Cup in April 2008.
Inspired by four-goal Jamie Densham, the Robins fought back to beat the newly-crowned Toolstation Western League champions.
“We were 2-0 down and we could have scored ten in the end,” recalled Sean Joyce, the Bideford manager. “Densh was on fire.”
Both clubs have since progressed up the football pyramid although Truro are now rebuilding after their well-documented financial problems and last season’s relegation from the Skrill Conference South.
Former Bideford players Paul Kendall, the defender, and Matt Andrew, the midfielder, are due back from suspension in time to face their old club.
New Truro signing Jed Harper-Penman, from Barnstaple, had a loan spell at the Sports Ground from Plymouth Argyle last season.
And Ollie Chenoweth, the Truro goalkeeper, impressed during a loan spell from Argyle at Bideford in 2011.
