Danny Greaves get ready for Bideford

FA Trophy

Frome Town v Bideford

After the disappointment of our early exit in the FA Cup, this game offers us the chance to go some small way to redeeming ourselves as this is a big Non-League competition, one that brings the ever so important prize money, but also an opportunity to pull one of the big Non-League teams out of the hat fairly early into the competition.

We know Bideford will be extremely tough opposition. Anyone who reads into the early season victory would only have to look back to the opening 20 minutes where they caused us all sorts of problems. They are a big club, with some experienced players and an experienced manager. They clearly know where the goal is as they have scored 12 in the last 6 games, including 3 goals on 2 separate occasions against Cinderford and Thatcham who are in and around us in
the table.

We have had a good week ourselves, getting back to winning ways in the league last Saturday against Totton and then winning in the league cup against Melksham on Monday. Both were extremely tough games, so it was pleasing to come through those, and scoring a few goals in the process. We are going to need to match those performances, if not better them to get into the next round of this cup
