Bideford are in seventh heaven following a 4-0 Calor League Southern Premier win over Bedford Town at the Sports Ground.
Sean Joyce’s Robins continued their flying start as they made it four wins in a row and seven unbeaten to soar to second in the Southern League top flight.
Craig Duff converted Saul Halpin’s cross to put Bideford ahead on 35 minutes before skipper Matt Hockley made it 2-0 from the penalty spot.
Duff made it 3-0 on the hour before former Truro City central defender Ben Gerring powered home an 88th minute header to cap the win.
Pre-match Joyce was aiming to give his side a week off from training – to recharge their batteries – if they beat Bedford, 3-0 winners at Bideford a year ago.
Truro City crashed to a 4-2 defeat at fourth-placed Chesham United.
Former Bideford ace Matt Andrew was again on the City score sheet, making it 2-1 in first half stoppage time after Chesham had forged ahead with goals from Chris Dillon and Drew Roberts.
Dillon scored again in the 52nd minute to make it 3-1 before substitute Andrew Broomfield’s 66th minute goal again reduced the arrears.
A second Roberts goal, on 79 minutes, put the Generals back in command.
Tiverton Town are up to sixth in Division One South & West following a third league win in a row and a comprehensive 4-1 triumph at Guildford City.
Matt Villis and Josh Concanen headed Tiverton 2-0 up within seven minutes. In-form former Truro City striker Matt Wright made it 3-1 in the 70th minute and Josh Searle added the fourth.
Taunton Town claimed a first league win, 3-0 at home to Thatcham.
Buckland Athletic slipped to sixth in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division following a 3-2 defeat at Bath’s Odd Down.
Second half goals by Dan Griffiths and Lucas Burgess cancelled out Troy Simpson’s first half opener for Odd Down, who clinched victory in the last minute through striker Kye Simpson after Brad Norris’ 81st minute leveller.
Willand Rovers also lost 3-2 on the road, at third placed Street, who visit Truro City in the FA Cup next Saturday.
Street danger man Mark Salter scored twice as Street built up an unassailable 3-1 second half lead despite a cracking 38th minute strike from David Steele.
