Studley’s  6th away game on the trot  ended in cup defeat when they were knocked out of the cup by Premier side Tuffley on Penalties.

The game lacked any structure to it with neither side able to get any fluency to their game on a hard bumpy pitch.

In a first half which lacked any quality what so ever the viewing public were glad to hear the halftime whistle.

Studley had a great chance in the first minute of the second half but Magee poked his effort wise.

Studley were having most of the ball in the second half but again no real quality was shown by either side. Studley were reduced to ten men just after the hour when Jake Bloomer was dismissed for picking up his second yellow card in a 10 mins spell, although the second card looked harsh on the player who looked as if he was trying to get out of the way.

There was no change in the quality of the game however as Studley continued to have most of the ball but neither goalkeeper had to make a save during the 90 mins and the game ended 0-0,  so onto penalties and after 6 penalties each it was Tuffley who came out on top 4-3.

Next game: 18th April Home to Cheltenham Sarecens  kick off 11 am Studley will be presented with the First Division trophy on this day.
