FA Cup Fever

Cirencester Town take a welcome break from the league on Saturday when they hit the FA Cup trail at the Webbs Wood Stadium, home of local rivals Swindon Supermarine.

You could be forvigen for thinking it will be an "Etheridge Family Day Out" however with no less than three on show!

Brothers Max and Harry will both be lining up for Swindon Supermarine but who have both turned out in Cirencester Town colours in the past.

Tom Etheridge










Wheras Tom will be turning out in Cirencester Town colours.

Ironically Max is currently leading scorer at Swindon Supermarine with 4 goals so far this season and with David Murphy finishing his loan spell at Cirencester, this leaves Tom Etheridge as Cirencester Town's leading scorer with 2 goals so far this season.

Both brothers scored for their respective sides in the recent thrilling 4-4 draw also played at the Webbs Wood Stadium at the end of August in the league.


Another ironic twist involving the two teams is the fact both have submitted seven day approaches for Nick Stanley who currently plies his trade at Oxford City and has played for both Cirencester Town and Swindon Supermarine in the past, in fact the picture below shows Nick from his time at Swindon Supermarine.

Swindon Supermarine come into the game on the back of two wins and a draw in their last three games having scored 4 and conceded 2 goals and Cirencester Town have won 1 and lost 2 of their last 3 games and have scored 2 and conceded 2.

No paperwork has been completed with regards the loan of centre back Callum Henry from Forest Green Rovers so he won't take his place in the squad for the weekends game and as already mentioned David Murphy has completed his loan spell and has returned to parent club, Reading FC.

Captain Richard Mansell should return to the squad after missing Tuesdays defeat to Weymouth through work committments and it is hoped that centre back Matt Sysum will come through training tonight (Thurs) despite struggling with an on-going knee injury. Fellow centre back Andy Gunn who got sent off against Frome Town will also take his place in the squad with his suspension only taking effect next week when the team travel to Brackley Town. Saturdays game will see striker Paul Banks complete his three match ban having been harshly sent off in the recent 4-4 draw with Swindon Supermarine and he will be available as of next week.

With this game being another local derby and with First Qualifying Round winners picking up £3000 there is certainly alot at stake and this game looks like being a cracker!


The match kicks off at 3.00pm at the Webbs Wood Stadium and if a replay is required it will take place at the Corinium Stadium on Tuesday 20th September kicking off at 7.45pm.
