Bishop’s Cleeve produced a fine performance to record their biggest league win of the season.

Whilst the hosts started well it was the visitors who took the lead when a backpass across the box was seized upon and played in front of Albert Hopkins who smashed it hard and low into the net.

Ben McLean nearly equalised for the hosts but his effort trickled wide but minutes later McLean did get the equaliser firing low into the far corner.

The hosts then took the lead when Ross Langworthy headed home Ethan Dunbar’s cross in a mad opening fifteen minutes.

Bishop’s Cleeve then had a spell really testing Joel Manning Butler in the Melksham goal but the Melksham ‘keeper did well to jeep the score at 2-0.

As the half entered the final five minutes however Cleeve extended their lead as first Dunbar converted after being fed through by McLean before Will Turner headed home from a corner on the stroke of half time.

On the hour mark Josh Nelmes fired in from a corner before Toby Holland charged through in injury time to finish the scoring.
