Radford 5 - 0 BIFC
Not an ideal start
Bishops lined up at Radford, with a list of players missing. That said, a 14 man squad turned up to wear our new lit with pride on the opening day of the season.
Pre season was successful generally, with the side playing some good football, so what was about to happen for the next 90 minutes dumbfounded the management, players and spectators alike.
Bishops started sluggishly, giving the ball away in cheap areas, Radford took full advantage of this with their high energy and quickly Bishops were 3-0 down within half an hour, with Nathan not having a save to make.

It had a bit of an effect, with sub Andy Yeates
leading the way in the 2nd half, Bishops had the majority of the ball but didnt seem to threaten the Radford goal.
