Cirencester Town Academy Match Reports 28th September to 1st October 2011

E.C.F.A. Premier League

Weds 28th September

Balby Carr  College 2   Cirencester College 3

                                        Hayden,  Keating & Hale (pen)

Cirencester made the long journey north to Doncaster and returned home with all three points and remain undefeated this season in the Premier league.

Despite falling behind to two early goals, against a very strong and creative Balby Carr team, Cirencester fought back to make the score 2- 1 with an excellent finish from Jacob Hayden five minutes before the half time whistle.

The second half saw the Cirencester midfield of Joe Shepherd, Brad Hooper and man of the match Asa Cox dominating the game. Cirencester were creating a number of opportunities, with Jacob Hayden running at the Balby Carr defence. After one of these attacks the ball came out to left back Reuben Keating who chipped ball over the Balby Carr goalkeeper to give Cirencester a deserved equaliser.

Both teams were now pressing for a winning goal in the last ten minutes with Balby Carr trying from distance to test Cirencester goalkeeper Harry Ellis on three occasions.

However, Cirencester were awarded a definite penalty after Jacob Hayed was upended in the box after a corner by Josh Morse. Top scorer Danny Hale stepped up to take the penalty with one minute remaining to coolly send the goalkeeper the wrong way to score.


E.C.F.A. Regional League

Weds 28th September

Cirencester 1   Bath City 1


Cirencester and Bath shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw which on reflection of the game was a fair result.

Cirencester started brightly with Dakura and new boy Jack Smith looking sharp. Bath also started well and always looked dangerous from set-pieces.

However, it was Cirencester who took a first-half lead when Derrick Dakura ran through the Bath defence before seeing his initial shot well saved. However the striker was able to slot in the rebound which he duly celebrated with his infamous back flip.

The game was pretty even with Cirencester having the better chances to extend the lead however they would be left ruing missed chances when Bath equalised with 10 minutes to go.


S.W.Counties Youth League

Saturday 1st October 2011 

Bath City 1   Cirencester Academy 2

                      Hooper, Miller

Cirencester came away from Twerton Park with goals from Brad Hooper and David Miller.

Bath started the better of the two teams and took a deserved lead after just ten minutes. Cirencester then began to get hold of the game and forced a number of corners.

It was from a corner that midfielder Brad Hooper scored with a great strike after a well worked corner from winger Josh Morse. Cirencester then took the lead after a fine cross from Josh Morse was met by Brad Hooper which was deflected into the path of David Miller who poked the ball into the Bath net.

The second half saw Cirencester dominating the play but they failed on numerous occasions to make the game safe. Bath although only having a sporadic number of attacks could have equalised in the final minutes but poor finishing let Cirencester leave with all three points.
