Bideford will hope to play their first league game for five weeks tomorrow.

They are due to host Cullompton in a Tribute South West One West and Devon Intermediate Cup double header.

Bideford's match at Chard last weekend was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch and will now be played on February 22.

They lost to Barnstaple on Boxing Day and beat Okehampton in the Intermediate Cup on December 21 but have not played in the league since a defeat at St Austell on December 14.

With rearranged league games filling up the blank weekends in the programme, it was decided tomorrow's game would be both a league fixture and the county cup quarter-final.

Cullompton were Bideford's first victims in South West One following promotion last season.

After starting the campaign with four successive defeats, Bideford won 17-15 in Mid Devon with an Ollie Sanders try and four penalties by Neil Giddy.

Wadebridge Camels were this week deducted five points and have moved below Bideford into the table's bottom three.

The Cornish side were punished for referee abuse during a game at Chard in October.

Cullompton are one place and 11 points above Bideford in 10th.
