Table-topping Tuffley too strong for Patchway
TUFFLEY have a five-point lead at the top of the David Wilson Homes Gloucestershire County League following a day when everything went their way.
While second-placed King's Stanley were not in action, every other side in the top six at the start of the day failed to win as Tuffley came from behind to triumph 3-1 at Patchway.
Matt Davis gave Patchway the lead at the break, but three goals in 20 second-half minutes from Richard James, Mark Ford and Marcus Foxwell turned things around.
Third-placed Southmead are now without a win in five games following their 0-0 draw at home to Henbury, who remain tenth.
