Gloucestershire FA Senior Cup (North) Semi Final Victory!

3 months ago By TDG G

Bourton Rovers v Longlevens Res

Rovers entered the semi final in mixed form but were boasted by the return of club captain Craig Gilson.
Rovers were striving to reach the County Cup Final for the first time in over a decade.
The game started with Rovers creating numerous chances but were unable to find the back of the net. Chris Cooper and Sam Tyack got an early control of the midfield battle and were key in Rovers opening goal which was tucked away from close range by Josh Fielding.
Rovers continued to pepper Longlevens goal but were unable to extended their league by half time.
Twenty minutes into the second half saw Rovers start to play some free flowing football and the second goal came after an excellent cross by Adam Webley was fired home from the head of a diving Danny Way.
Longlevens keeper pulled off a string of quality saves but couldn’t keep out Webley’s 75th minute penalty.
Longlevens scores a consultation goal in the 88th minute before their right back was shown a straight red card.

Rovers face Cam Bulldogs in the final on Thursday 19th April, venue TBC.

Rovers manager Scott Powles was delighted with the teams performance after a tricky few weeks. Powles added he will now focus fully on the upcoming cup final and insure that his team are ready for a tough game against an inform and table topping Cam Bulldogs who beat Moreton Rangers in the other semi final, 4-0.

Rovers face Carterton this coming Saturday, 3pm KO in Hellenic league Division Two West at Rissington Road.
