Bideford to stay positive in Evo-Stik League Southern says Sean Joyce
SEAN JOYCE has vowed to continue with the attacking policy as Bideford seek to build on a fine start to their first season in the Evo-Stik League Southern premier division.
The manager's positive approach was rewarded on Saturday as the Robins thrashed Chippenham Town 7-1 in Wiltshire.
“A lot of managers in this league are frightened to get beat,” said Joyce.
“My mentality is you have got to take a pasting to give a pasting.

“We are just as likely to get beat 5-1 as win 5-1. That's the mentality I have had, to try and outscore every team we play.”
Bideford hope the goals will continue to flow at the Sports Ground on Saturday, although their opponents Arlesey Town are in equally clinical form.
The Bedfordshire club thumped Didcot 6-0 in the Red Insure Cup last night.
Arlesey are one of only two teams, along with Cambridge City, who Bideford are yet to meet in the premier division.
They are 12th in the table, four places and five points above the Robins.
