Glos Northern Senior Div Two.
BIBURY made it six wins in their last seven matches when coming from a goal down after only five minutes to beat Longford.
Bibury almost levelled straight away but Scott Huband’s shot went narrowly wide.
However, the home side did equalise on 20 minutes after Huband was tripped in box and Chris Singh converted the penalty with ease.
As the half drew to a close both sides went close, Longford with a free kick which went just over, while Dom O'Neill shot narrowly just wide for Bibury.
Early in the second half Bibury made a couple of changes and went on the attack. Huband had a shot blocked and at the other end keeper Steve Luce made a good save.
With time running out Bibury were awarded a free kick on the halfway line and Shaun Sutton fired the ball deep into the Longford penalty area where Todd Boucher was on hand to power a header home.
The win keeps Bibury in the top three of the division.
