Bishops Cleeve Colts Rovers – 1 Cinderford Town u13 – 2

For the second week in a row Cinderford Town travelled to Cheltenham to take on a Bishops Cleeve side.  Cinderford started brightly retaining possession and the midfield of Justin Price, Scott Jackson, Riley McClennan and Jimmy Wicks dominating the play.  The defence of Will Jessett, Sophie Wicks, Dan Bowles and Lewis White were called into action on a few occasions by a well drilled Bishops Cleeve Rovers side but withstood the attempts to get past them.  The introduction of Henry Wall half way through the half solidified the defence further.  It was seconds before the half time whistle that Dan Bowles hit a looping volley which beat the rovers keeper.

The second half opened with Bishops Cleeve Rovers starting at full speed and scoring a ricocheted goal following a goal mouth scramble.  For the next ten minutes Cinderford endured pressure from the Rovers side and made changes by adding Gemma Barton and Connor Emsley to add another dimension to the team.  With Rovers doing a great job to reign in Cinderford striker Josh Woodroffe, George Ferson was able to capitalise and he drilled home a great goal into the bottom left hand corner.  Keeper James Martin was called into action and made some great saves to help Cinderford achieve a win.

Player of the Match went to Sophie Wicks.
