BIBURY bounced back from Wednesday's defeat at champions elect FC Barometrics to consolidate their third place in the league with a comfortable win at Smith Athletic.

Glos Northern Senior Div Two

Smiths Athletic 0

Bibury 7

Scott Huband fired just wide and Dom O'Neill had a header cleared off the line in the early exchanges before Bibury took the lead in the 12th minute when Huband raced on to a long goal kick from Steve Luce before going past a couple of defenders and finishing well.

Luce had to make a couple of good saves to keep the lead intact before Huband grabbed his second goal with a powerful shot after being played in by Danny Brunton.

Smiths had a great chance to pull a goal back from the penalty spot but the tame effort was saved by Luce and with half-time approaching Bibury got a third goal, this time through Josh Russell following good work from Ashley Rockley.

Bibury started the second half on top and O'Neill hit the bar with a header minutes before it became 4-0 thanks to an own goal after the Smiths keeper spilled a Rockley shot.

Luce had to make another sharp save before Bibury got their fifth goal when Dan Shannon headed home a Rockley corner.

Rockley himself got the last two goals for Bibury in the final two minutes of the game to complete a convincing win.

MoM: Josh Russell.
