Bridgwater Town knocked Bideford out of the Evo-Stik Southern League Red Insure Cup on penalties last night.

The first round tie at Fairfax Park had ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.

The North Devon side took the lead in the sixth minute when Matt Andrew headed past Bridgwater's young goalkeeper Jake Viney.

Kye Thomas snapped up an equaliser in the 62nd minute, shooting past ex-Bridgwater goalkeeper Sam Hutchings who was unlucky not to save it.

Neither side managed to force a breakthrough in extra time, leaving the tie hanging on spot kicks.

Jon Vance scored the winning penalty in the shoot-out, after Bideford had seen their second kick cannon back off the crossbar.
