Newly promoted Bishop’s Cleeve have retained a large portion of last season successful squad. Forwards Jack Watts and George Box have keen eyes for goals and experienced keeper Lewis Clayton is well covered by skipper Centre back Shane Anson.
Farm have started to find plenty of goals, particularly in that front four. Marcus Day, Jake Gosling, Owen Howe and Evander Grubb have all scored multiple goals in the last few weeks and are gelling smoother every week. Ben John as his tight defence will be buoyed by a big clean sheet at the weekend.
Cleeve started the season with two wins from their opening three games but are yet to win since. They also are yet to win a single away game this season in all competitions. Farm are still waiting for that elusive first league win but, coming off the back of a huge home win against higher league opposition on Saturday, confidence will be in full flow.
