Shipham 2

Cleeve A 4

SHIPHAM came into this game hoping to repeat their recent cup win over Cleeve, but were beaten 4-2.

Cleeve started brightly, pinning Shipham in their own half and got the early goal they deserved. An injury to Hobden after 10 minutes meant player/manager Joe Rowsell having to come on as the only sub.

Shipham got back into the game shortly after when Chris Green ran through and coolly slotted under the onrushing keeper. Rowsell put Shipham ahead with a deft lob over the keeper, following a Mitch Corrick pass.

Cleeve looked to get back into the game early on and equalised soon into the second half. The game was end to end with both teams seeking out more goals.
