Cleeve Reserves pay the penalty as Tuffley go clear
BISHOP'S Cleeve Reserves went down 2-1 at home to County League leaders Tuffley Rovers.
Rovers netted a penalty in the 75th minute to win it.
They had taken a very early lead in the second minute with a goal from Courtney Hamilton and it remained that way until the 65th minute when Cleeve levelled with a Jamie Lock penalty.
The home side felt they had done enough to gain a point but slipped up when they gave away a penalty themselves and Richard James netted from the spot for the winner.

The win coupled with Southmead CS Athletics surprise 3-1 defeat at Rockleaze Rangers means that Tuffley now sit two points ahead of King's Stanley.
But that is only after Stanley themselves missed out on a chance to draw level with the Glevum Park club after only drawing 1-1 at home to Hanham Athletic. Hanham started well and were clearly looking to avenge the previous week's 5-0 defeat at Yate Town Reserves.
They took the lead in the second minute as Jack Baber headed home from a free-kick.
Both sides were then guilty of missing chances, before Ryan Stevenson headed home to level the scores.
