BIBURY FC 1st XI ended their first season back in the Glos Northern Senior League in fourth place and the club's reserves side were third in the Cirencester League Division One – one place higher than the previous season.

If anyone is interested in managing either of the two sides, would they please telephone either the chairman Peter Lees on 01285 641716 or the secretary Willy Brown on 01285 653008.

It is hoped that both posts will be filled ahead of the club AGM on Thursday, June 12.

BIBURY FC completed their season with a very good performance at Tuffley on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead through top scorer Ashley Rockley who raced on to a long goal kick from Steve Luce before beating a couple of players and finishing calmly.

Minutes later Bibury scored through Nathan Brunton who tapped home Rockley's cross at the far post.

Midway through the half Tuffley pulled a goal back with a smart finish.

The second half started with Bibury going close a couple of times but it was Tuffley who scored to level up the game before Bibury sealed the points with two goals in the last 10 minutes.

Firstly, it was Darren Parker who converted Rockley's cross before Charlie Ingham grabbed the goal which sealed a very good win.

BIBURY FC present their annual FA Cup charity day on Saturday (May 17) with the proceeds being split between Winstons Wish, the charity chosen by the family of the late former Bibury FC player Robert Hopkins and the British Heart Foundation.

The afternoon starts with a match between two sides made up of former Bibury players kicking off at 2pm, followed by the FA Cup Final in the clubhouse. There will also be a raffle, BBQ and the bar will be open to all from 1pm.
