ROBINS STUNG BY YET ANOTHER LATE WINNER

An injury time goal condemned Bideford to defeat for the second time this week in a thrilling encounter against Larkhall Athletic.

Ryan Turner struck a hat trick for The Robins but was outdone on the day by Archie Ferris who hit four for the play-off chasing home side.

Turner put Bideford ahead in the 17th minute with a low strike after being played in by Josh Webber and doubled the lead 10 minutes later taking advantage of some sloppy defending to finish past Arthur Nasta.

Crucially Larkhall pulled a goal back right on half time as Ferris headed in from a corner to lift the supporters at Plain Ham.

The equaliser came eight minutes into the second half as Ferris was played through to slot past Adam Seedhouse Evans and the turnaround was complete in the 67th minute with a smart finish from the same man.

Bideford were not finished though and Turner levelled things up in the 79th minute with a good header assisted by Archie Reay.

However, much like on Tuesday night at Melksham when The Robins looked to have secured a point, Ferris popped up to head home his and Larkhall’s fourth in the third minute of injury time.

Bideford end their season next week at the Sports Ground as Bemerton Heath Harlequins will be the visitors.

Bideford: Seedhouse Evans, Taylor, Mayne, Slough, Byrne, Webber, Moyse, Reay, F Roberts, Turner, Bowker (Ewing 68). Subs not used: Hill, Mitchell, J Roberts.

Larkhall Athletic: Ferris 45, 53, 67, 90+3
