It's been another busy close season week at Bideford AFC


Yeovil Town have been confirmed as Hereford FC's opponents at The Sports Ground on Friday 12th July 2019, 7.30pm Kick Off as part of Hereford's pre-season visit to North Devon. The Glovers meet The Bulls two days before The Robins take on Hereford FC themselves with a 1pm Kick Off on Sunday 14th July at The Sports Ground. It promises to be a great weekend of pre-season football.

A home pre-season friendly against Ilfracombe Town FC has also been arranged for Tuesday 23rd July 2019, 7.30pm Kick Off.

So, there is plenty of pre-season action at The Sports to wet your footballing appetite ready for the new season.

Tuesday 9th July - Torquay United - 7.30pm KO
Friday 12th July - Hereford FC Vs Yeovil Town - 7.30pm KO

The 20 season tickets offered at a reduced rate and with the bonus offer to include Bideford AFC's home preseason fixtures were soon snapped up. The tickets are now ready for collection from the club office which is open on weekday mornings.

We are pleased to announce that the offer for the 2019/20 (Southern League Division One South) season at just £130 for an Adult & just £80 for a concession has been extended for a limited time so make sure you call into the office or call Mike Higgs on 07800540847 to claim yours asap.
Please note that any purchased during this offer period will not include the home pre-season friendlies.


We have been handed a tough away tie at Plymouth Parkway in the first round, date and time TBC.


This week we have agreed to have our matchday programme designed and printed by JJ Sports Promotions following a very positive meeting with Terry Brumpton. We look forward to working with them to produce a matchday magazine that flies off the shelves but to do that we do need volunteers to help produce the content so please do put yourself forward and speak to Ian Knight or Tristan Bannister if you think you can help.

Finally, all at Bideford AFC were very shocked and saddened to hear of the recent death of Leyton Orient Manager Justin Edinburgh and we send our condolences to his family, friends and all at Leyton Orient.
