Mitres suffer final day relegation

Bishop’s Cleeve’s great escape faced one hurdle too many as they lost 2-0 at Yate to finish 2 points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Yate started brightly and Cleeve had goalkeeper Sam Gilder to thank for keeping them in it early on.

Jack Watts nearly gave Cleeve a much needed lead however when he was put through wide on the left and his looped shot looked to have beat Yate ‘keeper Harvey Rivers but Rivers got a fingertip to it and the spin of the ball took it just past the post for a corner.

Yate continued to threaten the Cleeve goal and only some last ditch defending prevented them taking the lead.

Elliott Kennedy went off injured for Cleeve on the half hour mark and his replacement Harlie Price nearly scored straight away when a good cross from Harrison Iddles found Price centre of the goal inches out but Rivers somehow got his body in the way.

Yate finally got the goal they deserved on the stroke of half time when Nick Peare took advantage of a ball headed across the Cleeve box to leave Cleeve needing a big 45 minutes to survive relegation.

However, Cleeve got off to the worst possible start when a Yate cross was bundled in to his own goal by the unfortunate Joe Noakes.

From then on until the last 10 minutes it was Yate who constantly threatened and it could have been 6 or 7 if not for Gilder and some wayward shooting.

Whilst Cleeve had their chances they never really looked like scoring the 3 goals they needed and at full time Cleeve’s relegation was confirmed.
