Bibury had the wind behind them in the first half and soon created chances, Ashley Rockley firing a free kick over and James Keylock having a shot saved.

Scott Huband also put a good chance wide while at the other end Quedgeley missed a golden opportunity.

Bibury took the lead just past the half-hour mark when Keylock cut in from the left and fired home from just outside the box.

Keylock almost added a second but he and Danny Brunton put their chances wide.

Quedgeley started the second half strongly with the wind behind them and a long ball pumped forward almost caught out Bibury keeper Steve Luce as it crashed against his crossbar.

Luce was then forced to make a good save to keep the lead intact, but minutes later Quedgeley won a free kick on the edge of the area and striker Barnard fired home to level the scores.

As the heavens opened Quedgeley took the lead when a shot from the edge of the box.

With time running out Bibury attacked down the right and O'Neill prodded home a Josh Russell cross.
