Brown on target again to earn Cleeve a point

RAZOR-Sharp Bishop's Cleeve striker Carl Brown made it four goals in five days as the Villagers hit back to claim a point at Clevedon Town.

Brown, who hit a superb hat-trick in Tuesday's Gloucestershire derby victory over his former club Cirencester Town, was again on target at the Hand Stadium.

After a dull first-half the game sprung into life in the first ten minutes of the second period as the Seagulls took the lead on 53 minutes.

Bristol City legend and one-time Cheltenham Town loanee Scott Murray surged through the midfield and his lay-off found Ben Murray, who fired into the net.

Stung into action, Cleeve then went close as Brown, Will Gayton and Mikey Davis all threatened the Seagulls goal.

And on 66 minutes the pressure paid as Brown cut inside with a darting run before sliding the ball into the net past the helpless Dylan Castanheira.

Veteran winger Murray almost created a second Clevedon goal in the final moments, but after a fine run and cross, Steve Kingdon headed narrowly over.

But when Jordan Walker was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence late in the game, Clevedon were happy to settle for a share of the spoils.
