Top TV football pundit, Robbie Savage, hailed Bideford as his 'non-league team of the day' after the club thrashed Chippenham Town 7-1 last Saturday in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division.

Bideford's win earned them the honour of being chosen as Robbie Savage's non-league team of the day on BBC 5Live's 606 phone-in. 

Bideford's assistant manager Rob Dray spoke to Savage and his fellow presenter Dan Walker, revealing the players were to be treated to a KFC meal as a reward for their efforts.

Bideford's post-match report revealed the Robins gained their second away win of the season in style after racing into a 3-0 lead by half time. 

Sean Downing beat the Chippenham goalkeeper to the ball to set up the opening goal for Kevin Squire. Aaron Harper-Penman went forward for a corner to add the second. Matt Bye broke forward from midfield, racing on to a pass from Downing to dink the third on the stroke of half time. 

Chippenham pulled one back through Tom Knighton's tap-in, but Downing lashed in to restore the three-goal cushion in the 53rd minute. Three minutes later, after Chippenham's Adie Harris was sent off after being shown a second yellow card for a late tackle on Matt Andrew, Downing scored again, shooting in off the post.

Man of the Match Downing surged down the right wing to set up Andrew for Bideford's sixth goal and Squire made it a magnificent seven for the ruthless Robins nine minutes from time. 

The win puts Bideford above Chippenham Town in the table.
