Mitres take relegation battle to final day of the season

Cleeve’s win against Gloucestershire rivals Shortwood coupled with Barnstaple losing at home to North Leigh means Cleeve are 2 points behind going into the final day.

On a wet and windy evening on the hill it was the hosts who started better and they took the lead midway through the first half when Sam Gilder failed to claim the ball from a corner and it fell to Alex Kibble on the edge of the box who placed it into the bottom corner to give the hosts the lead.

Cleeve thought they’d got back into the match when Jack Watts was fouled in the area but Joe Bates’ pen was well saved by Harry Pickering in the Shortwood goal.

Shortwood immediately countered and Jack Freeman looked certain to double the lead but Gilder saved well and set up Cleeve’s own counter attack to see Elliott Kennedy equalise for Cleeve just before half time and could have had the lead into the break but Watts’ shot was just over.

Cleeve continued the second half where they left off the first and after some good work by Kennedy, Ieaun Crowe produced a fine cross for Watts to finish from close range to give Cleeve the lead.

Cleeve continued pressing for more goals with Shortwood rarely threatening and with 66 mins gone, the ball fell to Michael Ford on the edge of the box for him to grab only his second of the season and Cleeve’s third.

It was to be a nervy last 20 moms when Nick Humphreys broke the offside trap to make it 2-3 and put Cleeve one goal away from being relegated on the night but despite heavy Shortwood pressure Cleeve held on.
