PREVIEW | Bishops Cleeve vs Shrivenham

We attend Kayte Lane on Easter Monday for our final Hellenic Premier League of the season – with an earlier kick off of 11am.

ON RECORD

The Mitres missed out on the race for the title last week after suffering a 2-0 defeat at Windsor, but the game still has massive importance for both sides, as fourth takes on fifth.

Depending on other results, three points could see our hosts finish as runners-up (although at the time of writing, it will be third as Brimscombe & Thrupp are currently playing and are 1-0 up), or if Shrivvy can secure the win, the club would definitely finish 5th in the standings – however, whatever permutations take place around the top end of the table, Shrivvy are guaranteed to make their highest ever league finish, which is some accomplishment indeed.

Our hosts have Elliot Kennedy and Bradley Martin who are leading the clubs top scorer chart, both with 24 goals both from 35 games, while Harrison Iddles and Michael Ford both have one game advantages over Adam Mace and Jack Watts (41 games) in the race to have made the most appearances this season, on 42.

Lewis Clayton meanwhile, has 1 red and 4 yellow cards this term to lead the sides bad-boy charts, but that figure is very low when you take in to account that he has also made 36 appearances – proving that Bishops Cleeve aren’t a “dirty” side.

FORM

The last six games have seen our hosts slightly take their foot off the gas – recorded three wins, two draws and just one defeat.

Over the season, they’ve played a total of 48 games, scoring a total of 120 goals (average of 2.5 goals per game), while they’ve conceded 74 (1.54 goals per game) and they’ve managed to score three goals or more in a massive twenty-two of their fixtures so far.  

IN CHARGE

Kieran Dolphin has been named as referee for the fixture, with Nick Waite and Terry Cleasby assisting him from the sidelines.

LAST TIME

We last faced the Mitres at Barrington Park back in November [2018] when we suffered a 3-1 defeat.

Two goals from Elliot Kennedy and one from substitute Ash Davies sealed the deal for the visitors, while Sean McKeon registered our only goal of the match.  That match proved to be the catalyst for our own eighteen-league-game run without defeat, which was unfortunately curtailed at Binfield last Monday evening. 

TICKETS

Walk up tickets are available at the gate on the day of the match and are priced at £7 for Adults, £5 for Concessions and accompanied U12s are FREE.
