John Brough has quit as manager of Bishop's Cleeve to take the top job at Cinderford Town.

The former Cheltenham Town defender took charge of the Mitres for the final time in Tuesday night's home match against Taunton Town, which they lost 3-1.

But he will take control of the Foresters immediately and will be in the dugout for Saturday's Calor League Division One South and West match against Cirencester Town.

Brough, who succeeds Steve Peters at The Causeway, will be assisted by his former Robins team mate David Bird.

Cleeve were unable to give Brough a winning send off, with their chances not helped by the dismissal of goalkeeper Harvey Rivers in the 19th minute.

They had taken a 10th minute lead through Lorcan Sheehan, who finished well after a long throw-in from Lewis Binns.

The Robins youth team number one was shown a straight red card for bringing down Chris Young in the box.

Brough had to sacrifice Harlie Price to allow substitute goalkeeper Jamie Moore to go on and the first thing Moore had to do was pick the ball out of his net as Nat Pepperell made it 1-1.

Cleeve held out until half-time, but Jamie Short fed the impressive Young, who held off the challenge of Elliott Keightley and beat Moore with a neat finish in the 55th minute.

Matt Williams headed wide from Binns' corner, but Cleeve were forced to work so hard defensively as Taunton made their extra man count.

Substitute Rodney Marsh made it 3-1 to the Somerset club in the 80th minute, with Young the provider.

BISHOP'S CLEEVE: H Rivers; S Rawlings, M Williams, E Keightley, L Binns; H Price (J Moore 21), L Sheehan, J Turley, D Waters; S Turl (G Garthwaite 75); J Lee. Sub not used: J Brough.
