2nd January 2014 - Bishops Cleeve Reserves seek manager
After the previous manager, Simon Goodwin, was promoted to the 1st team as assistant to manager John Brough, Bishops Cleeve Reserves are seeking a fresh face to take on the role of Reserve Team Manager.
The reserve team play in the Gloucestershire County League, currently lying in mid-table. The successful applicant should have experience of local football at a similar level.

8th March 2014 - Bristol Telephones quick off the mark to beat Frampton
Leaders Longlevens take a two point lead at the top with a 2-0 win over Bishops Cleeve Res. Gala Wilton were held to a 2-2 draw at Southmead CS Athletic and Frampton United remain in third place on goal difference after going down 3-2 at Bristol Telephones. At the bottom Berkeley Town gain a point with a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol Academy, But Thornbury Town win 1-0 at home to Rockleaze Rangers to widen the point’s gap. Yate Town Res lose 4-2 at Hanham Athletic.
Bristol Telephones lying forth in the table took on Frampton United who are currently third in the table. The home side stunned the visitors in the first four minutes with two well taken goals. Frampton were at fault for the opening goal after three minutes when fullback Lee Francis misjudged the bounce on the ball just outside the box and Martin Blacker pounced to fire a powerful shot past keeper Scott Gearon. A minute later they went two up from a cross into the box from the right and Chris Misir hammered the ball home. The home side almost made it three on fourteen minutes but for keeper Gearon diving full stretch to push Luke Palmers goal bound effort around the post. Frampton eased their way back into the game and Chris Fower pulled a goal back on thirty minutes turning in a cross from the right. A minute later Fower could have levelled but his effort went just over the bar. Frampton were getting on top and levelled the score on thirty three minutes, the ball was cleared off the line from the first shot but it was gifted to Kris Bulley to drive the ball home. Frampton could have gone in front in the thirty fourth minute but Chris Fowers shot across the goal went just wide of the post. At the other end a last ditch header from Frampton defender Liam O’Neil prevented the home side going in front. Right on half time Martin Blacker picked up the ball just inside the Frampton half steamed forward made space for the shot but then shot straight at Gearon.
Frampton must be kicking themselves at losing this game after creating three of four good goal scoring opportunities in the second half. In the forty eight minute Kris Bulley sent over a great cross right on the head of Frazer Wilson who headed the ball over the bar from six yards. Chris Fower also missed a glorious chance in the sixty ninth minute when he too headed over from a corner. The next opening for the visitors came in the seventy first minute a brilliant solo effort from Ryan Hughes who picked the ball up just inside Telephones half scrambled past two defenders but with a clear shot on goal put his effort over the bar. Frampton’s Player / Manager Lee Driver Dickerson then saw his thirty five yard drive just clear the crossbar. Telephones stole the three points on eighty four minutes with their only real chance of the second half. A low corner was hit into the box from the right and defender Jack Fillingham’s shot found the back of the visitors net.
Longlevens fixture with Bishops Cleeve Reserves was totally dominated by the home side with the visitors failing to get one shot on target throughout the ninety minutes. There were numerous chances created with efforts from Dave Merrick, Brad Martin and Ryan Dunn all being kept out by some excellent goal keeping from Cleeve keeper Dan Greenhouse. The break through came on thirty four minutes from a long goal kick from home keeper Mark Harris that was picked up by Brad Martin to put Dave Merrick clear and hit a tremendous shot that Greenhouse got his hands too but could not prevent it going in. The home side continued to control the game and got a second goal on sixty minutes from Nick Humphreys who had just come on as a sub and with his first touch fired a low drive past Greenhouse. Four clean sheets in a row for the leaders and Keeper Mark Harris has been a party to three of them.
Kings Stanley continue to climb the table and are now in fifth place after their three – nil win at Kingswood. A double strike from Luke Barstow got Stanley on their way to the three points in the twenty second minute with a shot from the edge of the box. Barstow then headed Stanley into a two goal lead on the half hour mark. Kingswood woes continue when in the very last minute of the game they conceded an own goal when Paul Elderidge put the ball into his own net.
Bottom Club Berkeley Town picked up a valuable point with a one – one draw at home to Bristol Academy. It is the same old story for Berkeley they are finding it difficult to score. They should have been one up at the break but missed a penalty. They did however take the lead on sixty five minute with a goal from Ross Phillips, but the lead was short liveds the Academy hit back three minutes later with a goal from Vinicius Pinto. The home side hit the crossbar and a brilliant double save from the Academy keeper kept them out.
Thornbury Town improved their chances of beating the drop with a one – nil win at home to fellow strugglers Rockleaze Rangers. Both teams knew how important the result would be. It was the home side who went close to opening the score but Mark Viners header just cleared the bar. Luke Franklin had his shot well saved by the Rockleaze keeper just before the break. Rangers had a glorious chance to take the lead on seventy five minutes when Theo Coombs missed from six yards. Thornbury snatched the winner in the eighty forth minute when Luke Franklin pulled the ball back for Mitch Brealey to pass the ball into the Rangers net.
Southmead CS Athletic and Gala Wilton shared the spoils in a two – two draw. Gala went into the break with a two – nil lead although they had not been the better side in the first half. Ryan Hughes gave the visitors the lead on thirty nine minutes and then Gala took a two goal lead four minutes later courtesy of Brett James. Southmead made some changes to their line up and got back in the game with a Rob Sivers goal in the fifty first minute. Luke Coghlan levelled the score on fifty six minutes and that is how it finished up.
Hanham Athletic took a two goal lead in the first thirty minutes against Yate Town reserves. Dean Gifford gave them the lead with a volley from the edge of the box on twelve minutes and Rob Burton increased that lead from the penalty spot on the half hour mark. Yate hit back with a Lewis Hughes strike on thirty five minutes and levelled the score on sixty minutes with a strike from Joe Guest. Jack Tottle then put Hanham back in front on sixty five minutes and a further goal from James Shipman ten minutes from the end sealed the visitor’s fate.
Ellwood v Patchway Town ended goalless but both sides were guilty of missed chances.
The game at Henbury where Chipping Sodbury Town were the visitors was a dower game with very few chances but a valuable point for the home side after their poor run of late.
